Recieved in good time, they looked great, unfortunately, they were too small, i gpt a size 10 which all my boots and trainers are, but these were very tight and not quite long enough, definitely come up a bit small, so would get next size up from usual. Quality was good though, just let down by the fit which is a shame.
Comfortable right out of the box. Felt like tennis shoes and could easily go on 8 mile rucks with them and run. Fast rope capabilities were great for the first year I had them (roughly 50 sticks). Highly recommend these!
I can't review on long term use, as I used it only one week. The shoe is super comfy , it's breathable so you don't overheat. The top covering the ankle is a bit bulkier than expected but overall a nice looking shoe.
I have not yet worn the boots for more than a few days but count on using them everyday in the Winter. They look and feel rugged and up for the task. They run small and narrow. I had to return and order a half size larger then my usual shoe size. The ordering process was easy and delivery was fast.
I actually ordered this by mistake as I originally wanted the 9.2, anyway as I received the shoe I've tried it in and looks of a nice solid make feels a bit wide at the top of the feet. I didn't use it so I can't comment on real life use. But I returned as I prefer the 9.2 to the 9.7, the return was free of charge no question asked and the money in the bank one week later.
It took about 20-30 hours of use before they really broke in. They were almost painful at the beginning (normal break in), but now they are amazing. The gore-tex works, and the leather polishes up great. These are very light for what you get and they are flexible too. My Danners are currently sitting in the corner collecting dust. If you can re-sole these boots I'll definitely keep them for a while. I went away from the GSG9's because I thought these might be too clunky...however I was wrong. Both myself and my feet are happy with this purchase.
Bought these boots for work as I needed a comfortable, lightweight yet hard wearing pair and I am not disappointed. Easy to get on and off even when laced up but not fastened (not like some others where you have to take the laces out of the top two eyelets to get your feet out) . The padded tongue provides enough cushioning so when the boot is fastened, there is no rubbing caused by the neck of the boot around the shin area and there is ample padding to prevent any rubbing around the rest of the boot top. It’s not too tight across the bridge of the foot either when it is fastened and it provides a firm enough contact with the ground but yet retaining flexibility in the boot itself. The traxion sole and the adiprene heel add cushion and rigidity in just the right amount on any surface. Size wise Adidas have got it just right, I’m a size 9 and it fits perfectly. Room enough inside for the feet to still move, but not too much so as to move and cause blisters. If there is one negative about this boot and it is only a minor personal one, I would say that the top 2 or 3 eyelets could possibly be replaced with a quick lace system, although this is just personal preference and may not be to everybody’s liking.
Boots are pretty solid but we'll see how the durability factors pans out in 6 months! Sizing a bit small- length was fine but sides are too narrow to be my first choice of shoe for comfort- hopefully leather will 'give' in time to change my mind! Ankle support is great and grip is excellent although I haven't tried it on ice yet- should I be worried? All round a pretty good boot but would have been better with the option of a wide fitting. Perhaps designers could use that feedback positively?
great quality. durable and still light and breathable. just be aware of size. I am usually 8.5 but I had to go with 9.5 for this one... my right foot still feel a bit tight but acceptable... as long as you got the size right, this is the best boots to use anytime anywhere
I have relatively narrow size 11 feet (I never have to size up or down), and these boots fit me perfectly. They're also surprisingly light weight. I love the way they look on me, too. However, I've only had these boots for a few weeks. It remains to be seen how long they'll last over the long term.
I am former military, and I have used a lot of "boots looking" shoes. I took this model for a hiking second day I received them and it is a rare model that does not harm my foot during first use. The weight is little more than running shoes.
Okay, so when I read all the reviews about how it was more yellow then tan I was a bit sceptical. I have been buying stuff from adidas for years and finally decided to buy these for hiking. Let me tell you that THEY ARE THE BEST FEELING THINGS I HAVE EVER PUT ON MY FEET!!! They are SSSOOOOO comfortable and fit my feet EXACTLY!!!! I never thought that I would ever find anything like these. They feel great! They are also suprisingly light weight too! I normally wore the Kanadia TR series for my daily and hiking shoe and these gsg9.3s feel almost the same weight. Now onto the color as I know people want to hear about that. If you look at the picture of the shoes, they do actually look a bit yellowish anywhere but the middle spot were the adidas 3 lines trademark logo thingy is. That part is actually the only part that is actually desert tan. In person the yellowish part does look a bit more yellow but not highlighter yellow like some other person wrote. I found that if you go to Micheals the craft store they have fabric spray paint dyes. I found a desert tan and to my suprise, it actaully made it look like a desert tan then a what I was imagining it would. I thought it would come out dark but no, it came out perfect! Afterwards I did spray a water repellant on them just incase as I did not want the dye to either fade out or come out when I walked throught streams, which is part of the reason I got the water repellent in the first place. I have a friend that just used brown shoe polish and it turned out better then the yellowish but darker than a desert tan. It wasn't that bad looking either. I let him use some of my water repellent spray and both of our color fixers have been staying in place for about 3 months now. In summery, I love the things as they are the most comfortable things I have ever worn before, but I do wish they were actually a desert tan. I STILL HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM!!!!!
Nice boot, but runs small. I wear a size 12 normally, but had to exchange the boots for size 13. Now they fit perfect. Just not sure why Adidas runs so small. Anyway, once you get the correct size, they fit really nice.
After reading the reviews, I bought these boots for a 2 reasons. First, almost all the reviews stated the boots were comfortable. These boots are super comfortable, whether I am on the street or in the office. The boots feel like I am wearing regular Adidas sneakers, which by the way are my favorite and the only sneakers that I buy. The second reason I bought them was they were purported to be yellow in color and I love to be different and push the envelope. I was hoping that they would be yellow, so I would look the contrarian, I actually am. Well the boots came in desert tan, so I was a little surprised but totally happy. If you are looking for boots that work well both on and off duty, these are yours! I would recommend these to any and all!
This boot was purchased for work. I've been through many very expensive boots that has not held up very long. So far this boot is perfect. It's lite, rugged, very comfortable and stylish. It's only been about a month but, so far so good.
By far the comfiest pair of boots I've had on my feet, I have these on for some strong 12 hour shifts and some door work and I can Sprint and grapple easily in these, the ankle support is spot on for a mid height boot, my feet don't get too warm in these either 10/10 ! Will be buying a second pair
These are a very comfortable work shoe. I wear them sometimes more then 16 hours at a time. It feels like I'm walking around barefoot. My only complaint is the durability of the sole. Some of the surfaces that I work on are very abrasive. It's an aircraft carrier type surface. I would imagine that they would have better durability on a less abrasive surface.
Awesome boots, comfortable, lightweight, they do run a little small like all adidas shoes, you may need get a half size bigger.The only thing missing on these boots are the lace up clamps like you see on military boots the last 4 or 5 lace holes are clamps for easier lace up.
As a swedish police officer I encounter very various weather conditions. These boots keeps me warm and dry most of the year. It's just during January and February I need something warmer. These boots even excel my meindl performance in comfort.
I bought these for work as I am a police officer in London, most of my shift is on foot patrol. The first time I wore them I found them very comfortable and light. Also they do not make my feet sweat in the warm weather. Good choice I think
As someone who spends a significant amount of time on their feet in the private security industry, there are a few factors that come into play before making a decision on a pair of work boots. Namely, fit and comfort; weight, durability, and of course overall presentation. In terms of fit and comfort these boots are phenomenal. There is plenty of support in the ankles without unwanted restrictions in movement and the foot feels cushioned within the boot. As some other reviewers have mentioned previously, the GSG 9.2’s act more like a pair of runners than duty boots, remaining comfortable even after being on your feet in excess of sixteen hours. It should be mentioned that with regards to the fitting of these boots, they are relatively narrow. If you have wider than average feet, then it is likely that much of the comfort present in these boots will be compromised. In addition, it is strongly recommended to order a half size larger than you normally would for everyday shoes or runners. I personally wear size 9 shoes in most circumstances, and with size 9.5 GSG’s I have a perfect fit with just enough room for thicker socks when winter approaches. It is difficult to speak to the durability of these boots, as I have owned them for roughly a month. So far, then show no signs of any wear and still look fresh out of the box. My only concern comes from the shoelace eyelets being simple holes in the boots, and not having any immediately apparent reinforcement. While they are certainly thick, they may not last quite as long as metal ones. Hopefully my concerns are misplaced and these boots withstand the test of time like every other pair of Adidas shoes I have had the pleasure of wearing. The presentation of the GSG 9.2’s is a good balance between tough-looking ‘tacticool’ and more formal dress boot. This makes them, in my opinion, ideal for security and law enforcement personnel who need to maintain a professional appearance to a certain degree. These boots also seem to polish up nicely, so any scuffs that one might get can easily be buffed out, making maintenance of said professional appearance a simple task. The only way these boot could look any better would be if they were entirely made of full-grain leather as opposed to their mostly synthetic composition, which still looks relatively good. Overall, these boot are a great buy and are easily recommendable to anyone looking for a comfortable and lightweight boot.
I work as a corrections officer, and I walk a lot during my shift, and these boots are perfect for that, very light and comfortable, my feet don't hurt at all after a 12 hour shift. I even wear them off duty, they look great! I have some friends who serve in special forces, and they are also very satisfied how this boot performs. I thought that I would bust them in 2 months, because I have wide feet and I weigh 115 kgs, but they handled all of that extremely well, after 6 months, they look brand new. The grip is fantastic on all surfaces! They are waterproof, I wore them in soaking rain all day, and my feet stayed dry, which is truly amazing! The only downside is that the leather on the toebox is really thin and you cen see the contours of your toes, and also the heel area could be stiffer for the support. Anyway, I would recommend this product to those who seek a comfortable, light, good looking and durable boot.
Boot is generally comfortable however I'm not that keen on the design of the tongue in that the sides fold in on themselves causing what feels like a lump which irritates the top of my foot . I've tried re lacing the boot but still does not feel right . , That's why only 4 stars . Used for my job . I'll consider purchasing the GSG 9.2 next
This boot runs 1/2 a size to a full size to small depending on your feet and it is narrow. Over all comfort feels like I'm wearing sneakers at work. I'm a NYC EMT who works 3 jobs, these boots are heaven on earth for my feet
I did the usual internet search for reviews on the many brands/styles of boots on the market and choose the gsg boot. My need was based on very long periods of standing on concrete floors. These boots were PERFECT! I only knew I had them on when I first put them on. After that they did their job very well! They are lightweight, well cushioned, excellent support around the ankle, dry, warm and most of all....no leg fatigue from standing. They also dress up well when cleaned and polished. The feedback about not being easy to put on or take off is true. Trust me that will only be a problem if you are taking them off and putting them on all day....who does that? I followed other reviews and bought them a 1/2 size larger and that proved to be a good move. I may buy another pair, just in case I can't find them again.
