Rated 5 out of 5 by 3 x War Vet Best pair of combat boots I have ever owned
I have waited a long time for the Adidas GSG9 to come in a Desert Version. I owned a pair of Adidas GSG 9.2 in Black and wore them out. Now I only wear a the Adidas GSG 9.3 at work after I made them darker. Only complain is the boots are more yellow than tan in color. This should be the standard for all future combat boots. Check them out in action on a MFF HALO jump from 12,500' AGL.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Alpman Desert Low Boots
These boots were a perfect fit for my awkward feet and comfortable from the first day I wore them. The appearance is more yellow than tan and a bit bright, but I'm sure this would fade well with a bit of wearing.
The boots are very light weight and gave me the impression of being a bit flimsy on first inspection. This proved to be the case with one of the loops that the laces pass through tearing loose the third time I wore them.
I will be returning them for a warrant repair or replacement and will try them again because they are so supremely comfortable. I would not however, trust them for a serious hike into remote wilderness.

Rated 2 out of 5 Color is off,
I ordered these boots for drill with the military, upon receiving the boots I thought the color was off. When I actually wore them to drill is when i realized just how off the color was. Clearly in the picture these boots are tan, the boots I received were a high yellow.. almost highlighter yellow. My commander allowed to me wear them the rest of the day but I was ordered to NEVER wear these boots to drill again unless I can magically make the color from yellow to tan. The color is my only complaint with these boot and is the only reason I am not giving a great review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Paulie O Finally, now bring in the rest
I was glad to receive my new Adidas GSG 9.3 low boots the other day. I too had seen these available in the European market and had inquired with US customer service about their availability in the US market. I am desperately wanting to get the GSG 9.4, black low boots. I wish the US site would offer the same thing as the either the UK of German sites.
As far as fit and finish these are much truer to size than the original GSG 9's, of which I had several pair, to include both the black and the desert versions. These new boots are not as narrow as the older boots, but seem a little stiff out of the box. Two days of tromping about have properly broken them in. The laces on this version are also properly sized, and are not too long. All in all I am pleased with the purchase and will probably purchase a few extra pair to set aside as future replacements.

I am active duty Army. I have waited a long time for desert version of these boots, but they are too short to wear in uniform. Hopefully they will make a taller pair like the GSG9.2s. Please.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Networkguyinphx Kept me on the job
Due to changing fortunes, I went from a desk job to cable installation job involving constant walking and climbing ladders. After the first day, my cheap boots had worn blisters on both heels.
The Adidas GSG desert boots had been on my wish list since reading about them in Seal Team Six by Howard Wasdin.
As others have said, they fit like tennis shoes. Soft where needed, durable where needed, these turned out to be great boots for a light industrial work environment. Most important, these boots allowed my blisters to heal and me to keep my job.
Also like others have noted, the color has a distinct yellow cast to the leather suede material. Did not matter for my use, but definitely not desert tan.
After months of walking on concrete and textured ladder steps, the sole "cleats" don't show any wear.
Great work boot if you don't need steel toes.

Boots are extremely lightweight and comfortable. The color is also VERY light sand, not coyote as they appear in the website pictures. Would be better if they were darker.

Rated 5 out of 5 Most comfortable boots I've ever worn....
I bought these to take out to Burning Man this year and I have to say. I'm an avid NON-boot wearer, but wanted boots due to the dusty, desert conditions out there. I always goto Adidas first for any shoe purchase, and found these boots here. After reading the other reviews I decided to go with them. Let me say best thing I could've done. From the moment I got these boots in and put them on, my feet were in heaven. They fit perfectly, are very soft and cushioned, and feel like they need 0 break-in time. I'm already planning to order the black version on the boots as well! They definitely have me converting over into enjoying wearing boots a LOT! I haven't worn any shoes since getting these in over a week ago.
