    nice boots
    February 18, 2017
    Nice construction, great feel and almost no break in time. Very sturdy yet comfortable. Will buy another pair for sure. I followed the advice of earlier reviews and ordered a half size over and they fit nice.
    Good support and still comfortable.

    Bad design change
    January 18, 2017
    This is my 5th pair. Design change by shortening side zip by 1.5 inch makes feature useless. Boot has to be re-laced each time. Fine boot on first four pair.
    Improved heel pocket for better foot fit
    Shortened side zip makes feature useless which was strong point of boot

    Ooops...sizing off
    November 17, 2016
    I have another pair of size 12 5.11 tactical boots that fit great and are extremely comfortable. I have worn them out and ordered the 5.11 Tactical ATAC with side zip. While marked 12, they were much smaller as I could barely get my foot in.
    They look great. LA Police Gear customer service did come through on the return after first saying they wouldn't cover the cost of the return.
    The sizing is off. When I called LA Police Gear, they initially wanted me to pay to send the shoes back, I was quoted $40 by the UPS store due to the size of the box. When I protested they did provide a pre-paid return label.

    Quality is good; size is small
    August 27, 2016
    I have worn the same size boots for years size 10.5. Should have ordered a size or two bigger.
    Good quality.
    Smaller than normal in size. Need to order one size bigger.

    Well made, comfortable, practical
    August 26, 2016
    I'll start with the only bad- they run a half size small. I saw this on several other reviews and didn't take heed to the advice, order a half size larger than most other brands. These boots are very comfortable. I love the side zip this is my first pair with this feature, and I'll neasver go back. They provide great support on the soles and the ankles. They look great and clean easy. All around great boots. A bonus I found after receiving them is each boot has a "secret pocket", which I use to carry a couple push daggers.
    Good support Sturdy Clean up well, and easy Comfortable
    Runs a half size small

    August 16, 2016
    great product as this is my 3rd pair of the ATAC boots, however my experience with LAPG was not. i did not receive the free 5.11 hat and pair of 5.11 socks that I was supposed to and the item took quite awhile for delivery.

    Good boots
    June 9, 2016
    My second pair of these boots. the first ones lasted 5+ years, the outside and soles still look pretty good, but the inside liners (fabric) started to tear and fall apart. Very pleased with the quality and durability of these boots. I am sure I will buy another pair in about 5 years.
    comfort, durability
    thick upper ankle parts keep the heat inside the boots (needs more vent holes)

    Was a great boot, just not what it used to be...
    June 7, 2016
    First--THE GOOD: moderately short break in time, once broken in, felt great and performed well for the first 9 months working on concrete floors, tile, outdoors etc., sometimes 12-hours or longer. Feet didn't get too uncomfortable most of the time (although they do get hot) and I was surprised how well they resisted water, snow and mud--given they are not the waterproof version. 5.11 Customer service is always outstanding--which leads me to The BAD: they do run hot and snug (athletic socks fine--can't wear smartwool or winterweight socks), and my first day in these was absolute agony. Took them off the first hour and almost returned them. You'll need to really adjust the lacing, tongue etc. to find that sweet spot. My boots lasted me just under 1 year (with rotation with another pair) and the leather completely split on both sides. I always give good care to my boots--never had this happen with any brand. POOR MATERIALS. It wasn't great when these were made in China, but the Bangladesh ones are absolutely POOR QUALITY. I contacted 5.11, sent them photos, and they are currently on their way BACK to 5.11 for replacement. And if you work in a prison--avoid. They squeak like you're wearing a pair of clown shoes. I would have given them 4 stars, but given the newest version and the poor quality leather... 3 stars. Hopefully that first pair was just a random flow--we'll see how my latest pair performs. I will recommend for now...but if it happens again....NO stars.
    Great fit (once broken in) Zipper works well Water resistant 5.11 customer service
    Difficult break-in period Hot Snug sized (so order half size larger if you plan to wear thick socks) Squeaks/noisy Poor leather quality

    Great pair of boots!
    May 23, 2016
    At 1st glance I was skeptical about the boots however, I do own several pairs of 5.11s. When I received them I was astonished on the quality and the ease of putting these boots on I did order 10.5 wide and they do fit comfortably but, the fit is tight and was remedied by the lacing. Getting these on and off are great...............................
    Quality Comfort Price / Value
    Sizing is smaller than normal Zippers should be metal not nylon.

    Are these boots waterproof? or at least water resistant?
    on June 15, 2013

    5.11 themselves do bot advertise this boot as being waterproof/water resistant, but many of the reviews we have seen for this boot state that these boots are waterproof.

    By Robbin on June 20, 2013
    How much do they weigh? size 10.5
    on June 20, 2013

    A pair of these boots in a size 10.5 weighs 3.2 lbs.

    By Alejandro Gonzalez on May 16, 2013
    I saw that buyers are saying to buy these boots a size bigger, than your usual boot size. So if I buy these boots in a size of 10.5, should I buy them one size bigger like in a 11.5?
    on May 16, 2013

    We have seen a number of reviews advising to order a half size bigger than you normally wear, but we cannot guarantee that ordering a different size than you normally wear will fit.
