My name is Spc, Prins and i bought these boots a little over a year ago and I love them. Im in the active army as an infantry man (11b) and was then deployed to Iraq with the 82nd Airbourne. I have had many different pair of boots and have even had a pair of the oakley boots and they didnt even come close to these boots. The M8 tatical boots are light weight, durable, and most of all very comfortable souls with good arce support. I would buy these boots again when i need to and i have told every one i know about them. You wont be dissapointed

Better Than I'd Ever Expected!
I recently bought these boots, but due to my history of problems finding sturdy boots that fit me well, I wasn't holding out much hope for success. However, now that I've worn them for a couple of months, I can gladly say that they're the most comfortable boots I've ever owned. Even though I don't usually like to wear 8" boots, once I get these babies laced up, I'm as comfortable and happy as a clam. If you're looking for a surprisingly comfortable pair of boots that you can wear all day long, I don't think you'll find a better solution than these M8 Desert Tactical Boots. Worth EVERY penny!,

Bates' Reply:
We are thrilled these boots are better than you expected them too be. It is awesome to hear the fit, comfort, support, and durability are top notch. We really appreciate your positive comments and say thanks for the review!
