Engineered for speed with feedback from the special operations community, these boots exceed boundaries in all types of footwear on the market, including high-end running shoes. The 5.11 Tactical A.T.A.C. 8" Side Zip Boots are an exceptional value for patrol. With features found in boots often twice the price, these boots will be your duty footwear of choice as soon as you step into them.
I've been wearing the 8 inch ATAC regularly for over 6 years now. I bought 2 pair and rotate them on a weekly basis, so I've been going in the current series for nearly 3 years. Never had zipper or blister issues, and I work an average of 260 hours a month in them. I've even turned friends on to them, and they're sold too.
Second week of breaking them in. First impression... make the zipper optional. Hate them and some military/police units will not allow them. They come narrow so be prepared to order the next size larger.
Insole is wimpy.... got some decent insoles with arch support which made a WORLD of difference. Still wish some boots were 10" tall instead of 8".
I may review this boot later after the break in period. No blister issues or any thing like that yet. Remember to wear boot socks with boots 'you'all!"
The worst boot ever, wore them for two months thinking that they would of broke in. Blisters it was almost like they were a size to small I am a ten in every boot.
While working 3 Security jobs, one for a local Nuclear plant doing 16+ hour shifts, also at the nearby Nascar track securing camp areas, RV community, and two of our local hospitals. I needed a boot that would work as hard as I do, and one that would clean up easy and had zippers and waterproof so I could step in and go and not even think about getting wet. That is why 5.11 Tactical is the line up for me, because if you need it they have a featured boot for it.
It's a comfortable boot. It can use a little more cushioning. It is a bit warn during hot temps.
They should state when ordering that the boot runs smaller than your normal size. I ordered a size 10, but the boot length is shorter and gets uncomfortable after wearing them all day. otherwise a fine product.
i have no bad review as far as comfort. i've had this boot for less than 6 months, and i had already sent one pair back for ziper issues. i dressed this morning and, dagnamit the zipper broke again!
I am a security officer and walk all day. I bought a pair of these a year ago and am just now starting to get a new pair of boots. I wore these around 320 days out of the last year and my only problem was that the factory insole wore out pretty fast. But some new inserts and I haven't had another issue. Very comfortable.
Good comfortable boot and style! Only bad thing that they ripped on the inside from the heel after 7 months. Wish they could have lasted me longer.
