Haven't worn this pair, but from what I can tell, these are probably more about fashion than they are about function -- The zipper is a give-away. Hiking boots need to be laced tight to avoid you foot sliding around as you move downhill, and the zipper means that you either are ignoring the zipper and using the laces or stressing the zipper because the laces are "too tight" if you are at the peak and getting ready for downhill. At this price point, they look to be great for run of the mill walking and moderate hikes, and I'm thinking of grabbing a set for working around the house even knowing that the zipper will fail in time -- but if you are planning to carry weight up several thousand feet of vertical these probably aren't for you.

These are tactical boots, not mountain climbing boots.

These boots are made for walking, and for climbing walls. One of these days these boots might kick ............

What's makes you say that... The boots have well over 1k of reviews and with all sellers have a 4.5 star rating?

LMFAO!!!

Easy to sell junk to pseudo alpha mentality American gun lovers by tacking on "tactical" in the name or description of even the crappiest junk made in the world.

Not sure how anything tactical can be done with pretty " tough boy looking" boots if they can't live through some light to mid grade rugged use... like hiking.

Lol! He hardly described light to midgrade use. I stand by my original comment. There are other options if you're looking for something heavy duty. I'm gonna bet these are geared toward police and first responders, not SEAL team 6.
