I wear these boots to work every day as a security guard. They’re Keen brand. They’re well-made and are one of the brands the orthotists I see in town recommend.
I’ve been wearing them for more than a year and a half and they’re still going strong. They’ve got rubber soles, enough room for my orthotics, sturdy ankle support and I love their easy-tie grips so I can lace them quickly and the rubber cap protecting the toes so I don’t scuff them.
I’ve tried the other brands of tactical boots: 511 is too flimsy in the ankle for me to wear and the Original S.W.A.T. ones aren’t as well constructed and the zipper broke on both pairs I wore.
These also make excellent winter boots and I wear them all year long.
If you’re not in the mood for looking like you’re a cop in training, try these summer sandals.
