Men's GSG-9.2 High Boots
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.

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.

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!

Very Nice Boot
I've been a police officer for a few, and have tried many different boots. I learned about these boots surfing the web and liked the look. The boot is very comfortable and light. I've worn these boots in snow up to my knees, water up to my ankles and my feet never got wet! They did good in the hot summer months and they stay comfortable. I am very hard on boots and these have held up nice(i am on my second pair about to be third). I have never tried but I am sure the boot will take a shine(atleast on the toe). The only negative is they fit a little small so i would recommend a half size larger. Very Nice Boot.

The best boots ever
I have had these boots for well over a year now. I work anywhere from 80 to 150 hours in a 2 week period. They were the most comfortable boots I have ever had from the moment I put them on. To this day, the tread on the bottom is still in pretty good shape and they are still comfortable. I work inside a jail and have had many situations were co-workers go sliding past me because of lack of traction. (They are buying tennis shoes for comfort.) I would recommend these boots to anyone in the security or police field. Over 15 months of wear and tear, and just now considering replacing them with another pair, although I know I could stretch them out for another couple of months. (As others have stated, "A zipper would be a great addition.")

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

I have used a lot of boots to work patrol and the Adidas GSG 9.2 is by far the best. Everywhere I have used the boot either in the summer or the spring I have found them to be comfortable throughout my shift and beyond. I have have my first one for about six years and it's still good with no sign of falling apart. I mean six rough years of walking the beat even using them to compete in the Lowell, MA Winterfest human dog sled. The boot overall is durable and built to last for as long as you take care of it. I have recommended the GSG 9.2 to several colleagues and they love it Thank You Adidas just make a wide version for wide Feet folks!

Six Pairs and still going strong
I have owned 6 pairs of the GSG9's over the past 4 years. You may see this as a negative, but I wear my boots everyday, 12 to 15 hours a day. Working as a police officer the boats have out performed any boot I have previously owned. I have always worn Addias, and I love the way they fit so when I went looking for an alternative to the brands I had previously been wearing I discovered these on the website.
My first pair, on the first day, shocked me. They felt prebroke in, without the stiff resistenace I was used too. I got into a foot chase later that evening and scaled a wall with ease; and I mean ease. The grip was wonderful and the performance was nearly like a tennis shoe. Yes, I caught him.
The wear and tear of the boot is excellant, but they breakdown like any boot would over continuous hard use. They remain confortable though, even with the abuse I put them through. The pair I am wearing right now, as I type, are beat up and in desperate need of a fire :) Hence my being on this site.
If you are looking for a new pair of boots and wonder if these will do the job, trust me they have and they will. They are light, wear well, grip excellant and well they look great while your doing it.
I hunt, hike, work in these boots.

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.

Comfortable while they lasted.
These boots are hands down the most comfortable pair of boots I have put on my feet. I loved how natural they felt on my feet and gave the waterproof protection and ankle support I wanted in a good boot while feeling like a sturdy cross-trainer.
On the other side, I bought these boots in March, 2013 and by the time of writing this in July, the tread on the balls of the feet is essentially gone. Maybe I'm expecting too much, and maybe I shouldn't be comparing these to the Corcoran Jump Boots I had before these (lasted 7 years of everyday wear on Navy non-skid decks), but I was very disappoitned by the lack of life in these boots. Comfort and light weight are worthless if the boots are only going to last a couple of months.
