"Going to start first off with describing the boots and then giving the pros and cons, then verdict.

First off, the boots are of good quality. The stitching is fair and durable. Had no issues with them or the boot keeping itself together. Color is a light tan, like sand. The sole is hard rubber and solid, with supreme traction. The ankles are unsupported like most jungle boots, so you may experience ankle issues. Laces are long, perfect for quick tying military style and blousing. The boots themselves are form fitting and comfy, however there is one MAJOR flaw that nearly ruined them for me.

The heel on the inside is made of a scratchy rubber. This is an issue because, even with thick socks, the heel managed to scrape the skin off the back of my ankles in only one day. Mind, I was not doing highly vigorous activity the whole time (lots of walking in the MilSim event I was at), yet still they caused extreme pain and caused me to even bleed. The injury did not heel for about a week. Now, for most that would push them away. However, a possible solution could be to line the inside heel rubber with duct tape or foam. This could negate the issue. Mind, this was my first day wearing them. They may have to be broken in further. Will have to test when I play another large event again.

Overall, they are okay boots. Huge cause of pain in the heel if not prevented or played in for a long period, so it may be wise to install preventive measures or get another type of boot completely. Yet, despite the flaw, I still like the boots in general for style, durability, and form.

"I have had these boots for roughly seven months at the time of this review.

To start off these are good boots for what you paid for. I put these boots through their paces,literally. I airsofted, worked, and wore these boots almost everyday. They held up well and didn't have too many problems.

The problems I did have however were abnormal wear-down of the sole and flimsy boot sides. But that's what you get for a sub $50 pair of boots.

Overall if you need a quick set of boots these do work for what they are worth.

"I just got these boots in today and I am quite pleased with them. First off the weight. These boots are super light weight, when they shipped they weighted 4.8 pounds. that is 2.4 pounds a boot. adding in the weight of the box and other little things they could weight less. Second size compatibility. I was first unsure if the size would be correct. I went off the size of my Nike free runs I wear everyday. After putting these boots on, they fit as well as my Nike's. If you go off of your shoe size you should be able to get the right size boot. Third is ankle support. These boots give amazing ankle support without weight added on. The little curve in the back is actually solid, this is what gives you the ankle support, the rest of the top is flimsy but that doesn't matter. Overall these boots are amazing. After running, walking, and stopping quickly these boots held up well and where very comfortable. If these ever get wear out, i will definitely buy them again.
