An, excellent, everyday-wear duty boot with performance characteristics that are anything but ordinary. This 8” boot is made with full-grain leather and stronger ballistic nylon uppers. It also features side zippers for easy donning and doffing. Built on DuraShocks, the compression pads absorb the shock of every step saving your knees and back from all that pounding.

    I have had trouble finding a boot that is confortable, looks good and didn't break the bank on my safety officer/trainer salary. These boots are both confortable and easy to keep up. They are also well constructed and last a long time for the money.

    These boots are a great improvement over previous models. they are lighter and the soles before were hazardous on wet concrete. The sole treads have changed and solved the traction issue, I can wear these boots for the whole shift comfortably and offer quick removal for changing to turnouts when the bell rings. They are available or similar models at Bass Pro Shops in our area.

    I KILL boots. So far, this pair has lasted me over 2 years. I have NEVER had a boot last that long. Need extra socks in snow and crappy weather, but most boots need them too......Holds a shine great!
