Best Boots

Postby Uearerj » Tue Jan 08, 2019 7:37 am

Ok this isn't a new thread for specific boots but what are the best out there.

I am looking for the best boots possible that are waterproof and around the $200 mark. I like trying different brands and models to see what's best.

I am currently wearing 5.11 Taclite waterproof , its only been 7-8 months and they are starting to fall apart and didn't seem to be "waterproof" very long.
Before that I had the Converse (now Reebok) rapid response. They were heavy and inside came apart quick, but weren't bad.
The best pair of boots I had were Blackhawk warriors but at the time were around $300 :s
I was turned off of Magnums when I tried a steel toe boot and the first night I wore them the leather on the toe started to wear and made for an unprofessional look. But maybe that's just the steel toe ones.

So I am open to suggestions on some great duty boots (8" preferred but not a must) and feel free to list some pros and cons for your choices. I am not a fan of Original SWAT.

I like the Alico Summit boots from STP, they fit your price range. They're super comfortable but do not have a steel toe or shank. They don't have a gore-tex liner or anything but if you touch them up with boot grease once a week or so they stay waterproof, very nice quality & each pair lasts me 3-4 years: ... n~p~61270/
