I have had to wear boots of some kind or another for work either through 16 years in the USMC or my 8+ years as a Firefighter. I have NEVER had a boot that fits like this, I have always heard those salesmen say "The feel like tennis shoes when you put them on.".... I can say that this is the only time I can agree. I used to wear Warrington Pros, went through Chips, American Eagle... but always had the problem of getting the pains in the knees, back and bottoms of my feet from extended wear, not with these boots, they are VERY light weight, and with the sole they utilize eliminates the problems of the past. These boots are also not near as "bulky" as others BUT CAN STAND UP TO WEAR AND TEAR!!!!! .......THE MOST IMPRESSIVE THING IS THE SERVICE THAT COMES WITH THEM, THE COMPANY BACKS THEIR PRODUCTS 100% Check them out you will be amazed. http://www.redbackboots.com/btfireboot.html
