    Original SWAT Classic 6" in tan, from what ever reason they are the most comfortable shoes I have ever had.

    I have some Altima Light Speed boots I bought years ago that work great. NO insulation, but designed for pavement pounding. Living in the urban cessmaze, if it all went to hell in a handbag, that's what I'D switch to.

    Seeing as how I wear a coat & tie every day, maybe I oughta run a course in that, with Florsheims or Cole-Hahn loafers. Because if the flag ever goes up, that's PROBABLY what I'll have on at the moment.

    Salomon XA Mid GTX. They replaced Reebok First Responder Mids that I'd previously been hooked on. Lighter, comfier, and better support.

    Crocs with socks...

    But seriously, i’ve Been happy with my mid Merrill’s, but I’m looking for something with a bit more ankle support. Any suggestions, especially that runs bit wider?

    Garmont T8 for anything duty related
    Salomon Mid 3s for hiking/range use
    Nike Metcons for workouts/daily use
    Brooks GTS 15s for running

    I have a couple of pairs of custom insoles made each year through the VA, but the closest over the counter I've found that matches their profile are the green Superfeet. My Brooks and Garmonts have the custom insoles, the Metcons and Salomons wear Superfeet.

    I just got the Goruck MACV-1s. Hoooooollllyyyy shit!!!!!!! The first boots in 20 years that donít hurt!!! Sizing is a little tough because I have high volume feet but comfortable as slippers with orthotics. I love these boots. Well done Jason.

They are unequivocally the most comfortable, lightweight tactical boot, my ol' Army-abused dawgs have had the pleasure of wearing. I can't speak to the durability yet as I've only had them about 2 months, but exaawwqqqqverything so far is outstanding. Fitment, arch support, ankle support, breathability, quick lace-up, and no break-in period. The sole is aggressive and it probably won't win any beauty awards, but I'm cool with that.

    Here's a link to Shamazon where I bought them if you want to take a look. Belleville Tactical Research Range Runner
    Thought Iíd update my boot sitchee-way-shun.

    Merrill Moab Mids -literally falling to pieces. Will never buy another pair of Moabís.

    Belleville Tactical Research - These boots have given me a good run for the money, but are finally separating at the toe of one boot. The other boot is holding up. Tread has held up well, although the bulk of wear had been off/asphalt. The sticky, gooey calchi clay is tough to contend with and hard on boots I think.

    Salomon Forces Quest 4D GTX
    ďThe best damn tactical boot I have ever owned.Ē I think of three more as ďwinter bootsĒ. Iíve worn them comfortably in some pretty cool wx, down in the teens and in icy sleet while it shooting for several hours. Iíve also worn them in some of the hottest Texas summer days for 12-14 hours and my feet have done ok, but there are other boots I prefer wearing in the summer. These boots are worth every penny, especially if you can pick up during one of Salomonís or TacticalGear.comís sales. US Elite will also run some pretty good sales on Salomonís. If I needed to be in a boot all day in a crappy environment - rocky, muddy, uneven terrain, and cold/wet - I would want be in these boots.

    [B]Salomon Speed Assault[/ ] If I had to pick a boot to sleep on, shower in, spend the rest of my life in - it would probably be in Salomon Speed Assaults. These boots are super comfortable, very breathable and for boots are ridiculously light, wear great on your foot and have a pretty amazing sole, excellent traction grip-wise. They have speed laces with some kind of super strong lace (Kevlar?) that has an discrete pocket on the tongue and allows you to tuck the remaining boot lace inside so thatís itís out of the way. Iíve worn these out in the field training, and Iíve worn them 16-20 hours a day stomping through airports across the country with a 50+lb ruck and my feet/ankles/knees not raise complete and utter hell with me They dry super quickly, and as mentioned are very breathable and lightweight so that bears some consideration in cold weather environments. As far as my experience these make for a great summer weight boot, but that said, I have worn these through Texas winters (which ainít saying much) and through a winter in Arkansas and Boston. They are not going to keep your feet ďgore-Tex dryĒ, nor are they meant to, because they are extremely breathable boots, but my feet did manage to do ok in those cold environments, because I kept them dry, and was careful in the snow so I didnít get them soaked And I practiced safe socks. (Changing socks when wet etc)

    Salomon XA Forces for duty/range work.

    For me, they are the most comfortable and balanced boot I have ever used. I can run and jump without having that feeling that I have blocks on the bottom of my feet.

    These boots made me hate those clunky Danners and are a a good step up in durability from the Oakleys I had.

    They also came with orthopedic inserts which took some breaking in but seem to mesh with my feet very nicely now.

    I will be buying a second pair in black for uniform work.
