Needs some tweaking
The overall construction of the shoe is good. Foot padding works well and they can take a beating. Light. Durable. My only complaint is the elastic cord and keeper. Mine broke after a month. Swapped it out with some nylon webbing and it works fine. If I bought them again I'd immediately replace that one part, otherwise this is a comfortable, tough, little bastard of a shoe.

The Combat Shoe I wish that was authorized
Since I am no Mountain-Tossing-Fasting-Roping-Snake-Eating-Death-Scuba-Ranger-SF-Commando -just a regular grunt with two tours of duty under his pistol belt - I have to say I wish this was standard issue, especially in the rough country of Afghanistan. I wear these casually, since I have always wanted a pair since I saw them a few years back. Durable and comfortable, with spider-man like traction. What can I say, BlackHawk got it right! Worth the price paid.

Most comfortable ever
I can't say enough good things about this shoe. It is the best fit I ever had in a shoe or sneaker. It is VERY comfortable. The sole is a good gripper on rocks. AND I love the easy-on/easy-off bungee cord feature.

light and comfy,stick to your foot stable.
great hot weather, light duty hiker.
i like the bungee chord style lacing but, how do you replace the closed loop laces?
Is there a replacement kit etc.?
