First off, anyone who says these boots aren't durable are full of it and not using the boot for what it was intended. Probably the same guy driving around town pulling a 26 footer with a 86 Escort. Not smart or realistic. These boots are very rugged. I've owned the same pair for nearly two years and hiked hundreds of miles in them. The only complaints I have are in regards to the weight and breathability. Those of you who hike or do a lot of walking on trails, this may not be the best option. In addition to hiking I also hunt and these boots are more suited to blazing (bushwhacking)your own trail rather than following one. For flat out walking there is definately a more efficient option out there. My other complaint is that the boots don't breath well. I've used all types of socks and liners and still end up with damp feet at the end of a long day and occassionally blisters. The only solution I've come up with is changing socks and liners half way through. Boots are very waterproof. Combined with my Columbia waterproof pants w/internal gaiters it as almost as dry as my flyfishing waders. The traction is unbelievable in all conditions, no slipping except for on ice. The side zip is very handy. In spring 2008 I took an unexpected swim from my canoe in freezing flood waters. I was literally seconds from unzipping the boots and swimming to shore. Luckily I didn't have to and was able to kick float in. Still, it was very comforting knowing that I had the option and it was feasible. I would not recommend these boots for swimming however.

I am a security officer and on my feet 12 hours a day. While the boot was very comfortable the first few months I wore them, the soles seperated from the uppers and they would become damp inside during times of inclimate weather. First pair of boots with a side zipper and I loved that.
Overall, strong out of the gate but did not last as long as they should have.

        Best Uses

          I've been a police officer for 10 years. I've never purchased anything other than Bates boots, until I purchased these. I will never buy anything other than these AlphaForce boots again. They are by far 10X more comfortable than the Bates that I always wore.

          Best Uses

            Im a security officer and on my feet 8-12 hours a day. I needed a black boot that could be polished and was comfortable through out the day, the boot wears well after a year the insoles have broke down after continous use. Bought a pair of skecther shape ups and wore them for a month and they were not as comfortable as these, going back to pick up another pair tomorrow and down grade the other boots to off duty wear. hot boots but are waterproof, but the comfort outways this in my opinion.

            These boots replaced my previous set that lasted me ten years. Had to look for something new after my old ones fell apart after that time. I LOVE these boots! I use them for everything from hunting and hiking to enforcment duties or just plain going for a walk. The feel of these boots when i first put them on sold me right away and 3 years later, i havent been sorry once. The only thing that I absolutely dont like about these boots, is that it is VERY hard to go through a summer wearing them without wanting air conditioning in them. (even with the zippers open) I would recommend these boots to ANYONE looking for a rock solid fall-to-spring performer.
