I bought this boot using the sizing system and researching online. The guide that is provided by blackhawk is a bit off. I wear a size 8 lined Danner and a size 8 normally running shoe. With this boot, I went with an 8 but had to return for a 7.5. These boots need no breakin time. I got them the day before my last drill weekend, so I wore them with no problems whatsoever. The retention lacing system is very good, and all the materials seem top notch. I usually use a set of orthotics in boots, but I liked the insole on these brand new I decided to try them for the weekend. I have no regrets. Pros: Lightweight, comfortable, sole, good looks Cons: None

GREAT Boots. Comfortable and light. I have been in the Army for 15 years and I never had better boots. Fit like sneakers but strong enough for the rocks of Afghanistan.

These boots are the best. I served in the 3rd ID as a US Army Infantry soldier. I have road march like no other and I have worn every boot out there. Believe me when I say this, "These are the best boots every made". They are as lite as a pair of new balance running shoes. Strong, well built and just feel like a shoe should. The soles for traction are the best. Not a rock can get stuck in the tread. Non-slip. Heck I can go on and on. Just rememeber this. These will be the best boot/shoes you'll every own. And you will think back at this post after you get your boots in the mail and you'll say that guy was right on! Take care. JD Pros: Everything Cons: Really, nothing.

my entire platoon wear these amazing boots, we train hard, with march over the 45 miles in two or three days, and nobody suffers of blisters or another problems. Pros: Durable, Light, confortable

Picked these up based on recommendation from other cadets in my battalion. Can't believe how much better these were than my issued boots. Real light, comfortable,and no break-in time. My foot doesn't fall apart from blisters after a ruck march anymore. At first I thought they would be way to hot but it seems so far that they still keep your feet cool, even with the extra padding. Plan on ordering a second pair. Pros: Comfortable Cons: A little on the snug side.

I have had these boots for about 6 months now. Awesome pair of boots. They are very durable. I have been on hikes through mountain terrain, stood/walked through water. They do keep my feet dry even when standing in water. even been in prone positions and have no scuff marks at all. ive got to say putting these boots through hard use they are holding up very well. i am surely pleased with my purchase and would recommend them. a little pricey but you get what you pay for. i will be buying another pair once these get worn. IF your looking for good, durable, comfortable nice looking pair of boots GET THESE!. Pros: Durable, comfortable, true to size Cons: none

I have owned this specific boot since the day we Army switched to DCUs. Roughly 7 years. I have owned approximately 9 pairs of these, and LOVE THEM. I have been in the Army for 22 years, I have 4 years of deployed combat time, and these boots have held up great. They seem to last me about 3 to 4 years. They are light, great comfort, and semi water resistant, but lets your foot breathe. Out of 9 pairs I have owned, only one of them had stitching come loose in the tune of about an inch on the heal. They were within the one year warranty, so I sent them in, and within a week or so, I had new ones back. It should be noted for 11Brovo types, I am an Apache Pilot. So I dont spend the mileage you guys do, but I can say for a fact, working in and around helicopters, boots tend to get tears on the sides of them due to rivets and sheet metal. These boots hold up all day long. The only reason why I get rid of them and buy new ones is they are covered in aircraft grease and oil. I have only had one pair in 7 years actually fail. Out of the four years I spent in combat, these boots have endured the semi large rock terrain that makes up our flight lines that at a minimum I would spend 2 miles a day walking in. The rocks where sharp, and about 5 to 8 inches in size and would tear the crap out of my co-workers Oakley boots. I have never written a review for any product before and the only reason I am writing this one is to help out my fellow soldiers. Compared to CIF issue, these boots are ... Read More...

Light, comfortable and hard. What else could you want? I have had several timberlands, magnums and none is so light and comfortable especially thanks to its vibrating soles are perfect for steep areas and to make long trips. Pros: Light, comfortable and hard. Cons: nothing to highlight

I haven't rucked in them yet and I haven't had them long enough to know if they are durable. So far, they are the most comfortable boot out of the box I have ever worn. Pros: Comfort Cons: Durability?

I have tried a few other boots in the past, and I have to say that these boots are the lightest but yet very durable. I have used them in very cold weather, as well as some warmer conditions in the mountains, and various tough terrain. They are also very easy to get into and out of, and the laces have held up well so far. I also feel that the soles are very versatile and are good in any terrain.

Shopped several sites for these boots, including the BlackHawk site. This is the cheapest I found them, plus the only store that actually had them in stock (including BlackHawk!) When everyone else was saying it would be A MONTH AND A HALF before I'd get them, I found that unacceptable. So glad I found this site. I had them in like 3 days. Boots are much more comfortable, and I haven't rolled my ankles in them yet, which I did constantly with my GI boots. Pros: comfortable, flexible Cons: none so far

I have been wearing these boots nearly every day since I bought them a few months ago and they are the most comfortable boot I have ever worn. Sizing was spot on for me and I I will definitely buy another pair in the future.

The are by far the best boots I have ever owned. This is my second pair now. I purchaced from this site as these boots were almost double in price at our PX's clothing and sales. So much for the PX taking care of us. Make sure you mention you are military to receive your discount for these already generously priced boots. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!! Pros: Extremely light, comfortable and durable Cons: none, this is my second pair

These are well made and provide excellent traction. I use them often for cross country hunts in warm weather (40-110 degrees). I love the lightweight comfort and ankle support. So far, I have tried rucking with packs under 50 pounds. Note these are not insulated, waterproof, steel shank- but you can cover great distances comfortably. Pros: Lightweight and Comfortable Cons: none

Haven't had the boots long, but they seem to be just what I want. They're well-made boots. The service from Optics Planet was speedy and the whole ordering process was painless. Plan to use these boots when I need to run -- while in uniform.

Sizing fits your actual foot size. No breakin neccessary. Factory insoles are thick and removable just like aftermarket ones you will use to replace the originals so boot size is consistant. Boot provides almost no ankle support, so if you need that these are not for you. Pros: No ankle support Cons: Excellent boot in all other respects

These Warriors are a great boot. Like wearing slippers all day and so light you never even notice them even at the end of a long day on a hard floor. I'm ordering another pair just to have 'em stashed for future use. Pros: Very light, out of the box comfortable, love wearing 'em!! Cons: None so far

6 years in the Army and these are the BEST boots I have ever worn. They where for a great price at this website compared to rangerjoes and some others. Outstanding boots!

These Boots are Outstanding! They are comfortable right out of the box. I spent over 20 years in the Marine Corps and have worn out many a pairs. I never recommend anything to anyone when it comes to footwear. These boots are an exception! When your on the run all day and need the support in your ankles and something to take the edge off of painful joints, these bad boys are up to the task. I received my order in three days and they are worth every cent. Semper Fi!

Extremely comfortable with almost no break-in. The cushioning lasts for a long time. Blackhawk can be contacted for replacement insoles to revive the cushioning when it eventually wears out. These boots eat almost all types of terrain with minimal slipping. They can be a little warm in the desert heat. A little spray on waterproofing and they are the perfect boot. This was my second pair after putting on countless miles in AFG and here in the states for 2.5 years on my first pair.

This is the best pair of boots that I have ever purchased for myself and for sure will not be the last. They are even better than the Oakley's that was initially my first choice. Pros: Comfort is the best feature.

Never a big fan of ordering shoes online since fit varies so much, but these are perfect. A 14W is actually a 14W - no hot spots or tender areas fresh out of the box. 21 years in "GI" boots and thses are by far the most comfortable I've owned. Top rated, on sale, free shipping and found a 5% off coupon - can't beat that. Thanks! Pros: Very comfortable, great fit, good looks Cons: None

This is the second pair I am buying. From the minute you put them on you want to go for a ruck march they are that comfortable. They have so much cusioning they almost bounce. And this is by far the best price you can get them! Pros: Comfort, fit, cushioning Cons: A little warm for the desert

It's like waking on little pillows compared to the standard GI boots a good investment. Good compliments about style and looks from others. 5 stars I like the tread on the bo boot, it gives me good ankle support when I have to dismount high vehicles

Love these boots, I purchased my first pair at Fort Sam Houston during Officer Basic Course. They were comfortable from day 1, no blisters or discomfort! Pros: Feel broken in on first wear. Cons: Tread slippery in wet/icy conditions.

This boot is hands down them most comfortable boot I've ever worn in my 15 years in the military. The only downside to the boot is the lace loop on the right boot tore off only two weeks of wearing the boot. A personal preference for me that I do not necessarily like about the boot is the way I blouse my pants into the boots; the blousing comes undone throughout the day and I have to keep re-blousing my pant legs into the boots. I'm not sure if it's because of the length of my pants or the different cut at the top of the boots. Pros: Comfort; value Cons: Workmanship; not made in the USA

Very well made and the materials used to build this boot are tops. The support and comfort is good for a long day on your feet. The size I bought first was a half size to big, Optics Planet took care of the return very quick. This boot is so far handling all kinds of conditions from pounding on concrete, asphalt, lava fields and some mud and loose rock. Still have not gone into deep water though. So good I'm getting another pair. Good Luck.

These are the nicest boots I have worn, ever. Extremly more comfortable than issue boots and a hell of a lot lighter. They are also more rugged than the cheapies I picked up at ranger joes which literally ripped in half after 11 ariborne ops. Speaking of which I just jumped with these at bragg last week and they were great no sprained ankles, and I hit like a damn rock 200+ lbs. Highly recomend all around. You can stop looking for another boot this is the one you will want. Pros: very comfortable, very little break in if any

Haven't put them through anything to tough yet. But took them on 5k ruck march right out of the box. Felt like putting on a new pair of running shoes. Wore them goose hunting once. Took on the mud no problem. Super comfortable and tread cleaned up easily despite being very aggressive. Have no complaints yet. I highly recommend the boots and their customer service is top notch. Originally ordered the wrong color. Had to send them back to get the military approved tan. They re-did my order and had the right style out lickity split. Pros: great quality. great price!! Cons: none yet

I was very skeptical at first based on the price. My worries relieved. This is an awesome boot. They are extremely comfortable and so far durable. I have had them for 6 months. They have endured extreme cold and ice. In the ice the tread held up better than any boot I have ever used in the past. I will continue to buy these boots in the future. Pros: Great price point; Extremely comfortable; Work great Cons: none to note

First let me say that time from order to receiving then was great also.. The boots are awesome an very comfortable and need pretty much no break in, but do get bit better with time worn, havent had them long enough to talk about how they will wear, but seem to be well made and look good also... The only think is they seem to be about 1/2 size small on these, so i would order 1/2 size up to make them fit super great.... This boot would be very hard to beat for feel and comfort and looks........ I plan to get another pair some time in the future...

Never have I purchased a pair of shoes of any kind that I didn't expect a little break-in period. Until now! I just received my BlackHawk Warrior Wear Desert Ops Boots, put them on and I can now say these are without a doubt the most comfortable footwear I have ever owned, straight out of the box. I am so impressed I am ordering a second pair right away.
