I can't say enough about these boots. I wore my initial issued boots the whole time I was in the Marines and they lasted me another ten years in my career in law enforcement.....for a total of 16 years! I've made the mistake of wasting money on other types of work boots: lightweight, heavy duty, newer designs and so on. Lesson learned. I'm back to wearing Altama Combat Boots and I will not wear another type or brand again. Nothing, and I mean nothing out there is as comfortable and durable as these Altama combat boots. I'm sure I'll get another 16 years wear out of these boots as well.

The Best Around - A True Classic
I own several different pairs of combat boots,
and these are overall the most durable, comfortable, well-made boots I own.
They may not take a shine like Jungle Boots or Jump Boots,
but their everyday utility makes these the most beloved boots I own.
There's a reason the US Military issued these to GIs for many years!

ive owned these boots for 6 years and i wear them at least 5 days a week and they are still in goood condition. theyve been to work with me and everywhere in between and ive NEVER used conditioners of any kind. they look rough but there are no holes, still plenty of tread i just wish there were more altamas with steel toe. ive had to sneak them into work cuz they dont have steel-toe but they can't tell because the toe still stands tall. make more steel toe!

Get what ya pay for
I bought these boots when I lived out in MI and they followed me out to North Dakota. They obviously aren't made for cold weather climates. Just a bit of advice they are HORRIBLE on ice. My cowboy boots actually had better traction than these. Anyways, as for the summer months they did all right, but it is a cheaper boot and ya get what ya pay for.
My advice is spend a few extra bucks and get something a little nicer and already waterproofed. Nobody wants wet feet.

this are on of the best pair boots I have ever owned. I just wish they were water proof. (You have to break them in)

These are one of the most comfortable combat boots i have ever owned. I live in Minnesota and these boots are great for the outdoors in the snow and mud. Anybody out there looking for combat boots I highly recommend this boot.
