    I've been in law enforcement for 12 years now and by far this is the best pair of boots I've ever worn. They are extremely comfortable and lightweight with a good tacky sole that grips. If you have to bend down or squat they don't hamper you one bit. You almost feel like you are wearing tennie shoes. Once you try these boots on you will not go back to any other type of boot. I guarantee it! I've gotten lots of my friends to try them and they all agree with me.

    These are the most comfortable boots I have ever worn from the first minute you put them on. They do not have to be broken in. They are lightweight and the traction is great. When I have finally worn my current pair out, I will definitely be buying another pair of these.

    I just bought my second pair of these...I like the first pair better. They are still as comfortable as the first...just not as much padding.

    These are great lighweight boots. VERY comfortable, good traction, but could use a little more padding in the footbed. The arch is kinda high and takes getting used to when you first wear them but they are very comfortable after that. I use them for summer or whever my calves need a break from the high top on my Danners.

    Best tactical boot I have used in 15 years of service. I wear them for SWAT and after hours of training or call-outs my feet are fine. The best part is there is no "breaking in."

    Feels as though you are wearing running shoes. Lightweight and comfortable!!! I wore them in a five mile full tactical gear run and had no problems with my feet.

    Absolutely the best boot I have ever worn. The comfort and durability far exceeds any Hi-Tech I have ever worn in the past. Great traction on wet surfaces as well.

    Well worth the money.

    I have the desert version and these are by far the most comfortable boots I have owned. After about 3 days break in they were like an old pair of sneakers in comfort. I have had them for 2 weeks now and love them. At first was not sure I wanted to spend the money but it was well spent. Absolutely the best I have owned.

    Love these boot! They feel like tennis shoes but they are durable and quiet. They hold up well in a foot chase and they are very quiet during any type of tactical operation.

    Working in a desert environment the Oakley Assault Boot has been the best investment I have made besides my UnderArmor shirts. The boot allows you to walk across uneven ground as though you were walking on the sidewalk. Your feet stay cool and dry and they hold up to so well, you will wear out the sole before the uppers go.

    Best pair of boots you'll ever buy. Great support. Take almost no break in time. Very comfortable after only a couple hours of use. Seem to be holding up really well too! I used these in Iraq also and never had any complaints. They're the best boots you can buy.
