Long lasting comfort
I bought these boots around 4 years ago when the ICS features were placed on the underside of the sole, requiring removal of the entire insole to change them. Regardless, this pair of boots was the best investment I made in footwear. I wear them with the Military Uniform (BDU) and they look professional, take a shine well, and are extremely durable (Only issue in those 4 years so far is I've had to replace the laces). They can get warm during the summer in Florida, but I've never had a blister issue or other foot related problem. The boots are comfortable for extended wear and are largely water-resistant. My only complaint is that the ICS sole is starting to wear out after somewhat moderate usage

I bought these boots about a month ago and they are extremely comfortable. I am on my feet for hours at a time and I have bad ankles and knees, an these boots have helped with pain after i got the adjustments set in the heels and I have reduced the pain meds i take for my ankles. I have tried other boots and these have been the best so far. So i will gives these boots a thumbs up for comfort. I do want to know if the heel inserts are replaceable if they wear out. Thank you..
Boots are very comfortable, no fatigue at all. On feet all day.
They lack in Threads and Velcro adhesive.
Other than that, they have exceeded expectations for Boots.
To who complain have Sizing, Always have your feet Measured, prior to purchasing from a Boot Store......Don't insult the Maker, they're your feet.....
