Not a bad boot for the price. Only thing after wearing them for a few days and the break-in was the insole was not quite comfortable. After replacing it with new one it's game on.

Great value and comfort I have loved tactical boots for years. Bought my first ZR-8 in 2010 and wore them flat on the bottoms. Just now replacing in 2016. I usually don't wear them casually in the summer, but live in them in the fall and winter. Within the first month, one of the quick lace mounts tore away partially, but not completely. I still managed 5 years out of the boots. That is my only complaint. I hate to take a full star, because they're closer to a 9/10 for me. Wear them camping, hiking, shooting and to/from work (I'm a nurse and don't like to wear my work shoes anywhere but the hospital.) Don't have any other brands to compare them with, but I don't really feel the need for others' boots as these have done very well.

Surprisingly comfortable, but... Feels great out of the box-office need to break in... but a bit wide near ankle, probably to allow for easy zip. Overall a good book for the money.

Awesome Tactical boot for the price. I just bought my third pair of ZR-8's. They are very comfortable, good fitting and reasonably priced. I wear them for costruction work, hunting and during bad winter weather. The water resistance is excellent, during many winters of snow removal it took around 10-12 hours of being constantly coverd in snow before any water began to get in and even then it was minimal. The soles grip all surfaces very well and will take alot of abuse before wearing. As for the shine i see alot of complaints about that. My experience has been that they hold the original shine for a month or so of heavy wear but with a mink oil treatment twice a month will condition the leather, add additional waterproofing and give them a shine that well exceeds a brand new pair. The only complaint i have is with the tounge. Where the tounge is attached to the boot upper it is a strip of leather running the length of the tounge that is stiched to the boot and tounge but the leather strip is glued on the inside to the boot. With very minimal strain while cleaning, that side of the strip that is glued will come apart very easily. I recommend additional stiching instead of glue. Overall, their an awesome boot.

Comfortable from the get-go. Broke in in less than a week. I'm not in law enforcement, but these boots are great for general wear. Nice insoles, support is good...and they look awesome.
