Rated 5 out of 5 by TacticalGuy Good for Law Enforcement training
Heard about these from the Lone Survivor novel, where the author/SEAL uses and greatly recommends them. Bought a pair as I'm going through an extended period of law enforcement training for several months. Been a few weeks and I can say they're durable so far, very comfortable, supportive yet flexible, and look nice and professional. The grip is exactly how it should be. Brings each step where it should be while keeping sure footing and not sticking. The instructors even knew this boot by name and positive reputation amongst LEO's in our area. A great investment for light/heavy training days.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dwight Outstanding boot if you can get it on
Obvious negative, you better not be in a rush when entering or exiting this boot. It's a long process. That's about it for negatives.
On the plus side they are the most comfortable pair of boots I have ever worn. I've been driving manual trans. cars for 15 years, and never felt comfortable wearing winter boots cause they don't allow ankle articulation. But these are amazing, I can run comfortably, bend low to the ground to pick-up/play with my son, and very comfortable when working the clutch on my car during aggressive driving. (haven't worn boots in years cause of this, never got used to it I guess)
Would easily get 5 stars if they were easier to get on/off. Also I would suggest a half size larger than your normal. I usually float between a 10 and 10.5, so I bought in 10.5 and it's a little snug, but I feel 11 would have been slightly to big. Hope this helps. Cheers

Rated 4 out of 5 Very good boot.
I have worn these for nearly a year. They are my go to boot. Very comfortable. They size about a half a size small. 9.5 buy 10. Waterproof as advertised. Uppers wear very well. Ball of the foot on the sole is wearing faster than I would like. Some lugs have broken off from that area. Sure would have liked to give these a 5 star rating as it is a very comfortable daily wearing boot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mongo2000 LEO Boots
Have been a LEO for about ten years. Gone through a lot of boots and have not found one better than this. Its not a dress boot but for everyday duty you cant beat it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by czerda.f Great pair of boots
I purchased these boots about a week ago and they are great! I bought them after reading about them in SEAL Team Six, a book by a former Navy SEAL. I was looking for a comfortable pair of boots, that could withstand the wear and tear of running Endurance and Obstacle Courses weekly, and these fit my criteria perfectly. They are as comfortable and lightweight as running shoes, and fit like basketball shoes. The only problem I have is that it takes a while to get them on and off. Otherwise, I'd recommend this boot to anyone looking to put in some serious work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by adidaddy THE BEST 8" BOOTS YOU CAN BUY!
Great pair of boots! The treads are amazing! They go through water, snow, and mud with ease. The boot are the lightest I've put on. They feel like soccer cleats. Usually theres foot fatigue when I wear shoes or boots for long periods of time but not with these. I've walked for hours in several feet of snow and my feet didn't get tired or wet. They kept me warm in the cold and are still breathable. Adidas did a great job with the CLIMAPROOF membrane very similar to Gore-Tex. It would be nice to see ADITUFF in the toe area becasue you can easily scratch the leather. Also like to see FORMORTION in the heel. Otherwise great job adidas!

Rated 4 out of 5 by CPD 17519 too narrow!!
this boot looks great and very comfortable, but this boot does not come in a wide-width option. i hope that addidas with address this issue. i have no problem paying a little more for a properly fitting boot, at least (2e-4e)..

Rated 5 out of 5 by SiFlyBy Best $150 I ever spent
I was extremely skeptical about the slip-resistance of the boots on flat smooth surfaces just by looking at the tread pattern. I was pleasantly surprised by how wrong I was. I am an automotive technician in a new shop with concrete floors that are epoxied and very smooth. These boots provide excellent traction on the floor especially when wet with water or anitfreeze and do ok in oil trans fluid(no footwear sticks to slick floor with oil or trans fluid on it). I will probably continue to buy these for the rest of my days. Adidas has always been my favorite brand and I am glad to be able to wear them to work as well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by dougster Width Not True To Size
The rating provided above is based on fit only. I would recommend the boot, IF they fit properly. I was extremely disappointed upon receiving my GSG 9.2 boots. The boots were lightweight and appeared to be well made. However, unlike other reviews I had read before ordering the boots, which claimed that the boots fit "true to size", my boots did not fit true to size, with respect to the width. The boots were extremely narrow and uncomfortable. Even after completely unlacing the boots and making sure they were not tightly laced, I was unable to get comfortable in them. I will be returning the boots for a refund.
