Obvious negative, you better not be in a rush when entering or exiting this boot. It's a long process. That's about it for negatives. On the plus side they are the most comfortable pair of boots I have ever worn. I've been driving manual trans. cars for 15 years, and never felt comfortable wearing winter boots cause they don't allow ankle articulation. But these are amazing, I can run comfortably, bend low to the ground to pick-up/play with my son, and very comfortable when working the clutch on my car during aggressive driving. (haven't worn boots in years cause of this, never got used to it I guess) Would easily get 5 stars if they were easier to get on/off. Also I would suggest a half size larger than your normal. I usually float between a 10 and 10.5, so I bought in 10.5 and it's a little snug, but I feel 11 would have been slightly to big. Hope this helps. Cheers
I have owned 6 pairs of the GSG9's over the past 4 years. You may see this as a negative, but I wear my boots everyday, 12 to 15 hours a day. Working as a police officer the boats have out performed any boot I have previously owned. I have always worn Addias, and I love the way they fit so when I went looking for an alternative to the brands I had previously been wearing I discovered these on the website. My first pair, on the first day, shocked me. They felt prebroke in, without the stiff resistenace I was used too. I got into a foot chase later that evening and scaled a wall with ease; and I mean ease. The grip was wonderful and the performance was nearly like a tennis shoe. Yes, I caught him. The wear and tear of the boot is excellant, but they breakdown like any boot would over continuous hard use. They remain confortable though, even with the abuse I put them through. The pair I am wearing right now, as I type, are beat up and in desperate need of a fire :) Hence my being on this site. If you are looking for a new pair of boots and wonder if these will do the job, trust me they have and they will. They are light, wear well, grip excellant and well they look great while your doing it. I hunt, hike, work in these boots. Take care!
Great pair of boots! The treads are amazing! They go through water, snow, and mud with ease. The boot are the lightest I've put on. They feel like soccer cleats. Usually theres foot fatigue when I wear shoes or boots for long periods of time but not with these. I've walked for hours in several feet of snow and my feet didn't get tired or wet. They kept me warm in the cold and are still breathable. Adidas did a great job with the CLIMAPROOF membrane very similar to Gore-Tex. It would be nice to see ADITUFF in the toe area becasue you can easily scratch the leather. Also like to see FORMORTION in the heel. Otherwise great job adidas!
Heard about these from the Lone Survivor novel, where the author/SEAL uses and greatly recommends them. Bought a pair as I'm going through an extended period of law enforcement training for several months. Been a few weeks and I can say they're durable so far, very comfortable, supportive yet flexible, and look nice and professional. The grip is exactly how it should be. Brings each step where it should be while keeping sure footing and not sticking. The instructors even knew this boot by name and positive reputation amongst LEO's in our area. A great investment for light/heavy training days.
I've been a police officer for a few, and have tried many different boots. I learned about these boots surfing the web and liked the look. The boot is very comfortable and light. I've worn these boots in snow up to my knees, water up to my ankles and my feet never got wet! They did good in the hot summer months and they stay comfortable. I am very hard on boots and these have held up nice(i am on my second pair about to be third). I have never tried but I am sure the boot will take a shine(atleast on the toe). The only negative is they fit a little small so i would recommend a half size larger. Very Nice Boot.
I have had these boots for well over a year now. I work anywhere from 80 to 150 hours in a 2 week period. They were the most comfortable boots I have ever had from the moment I put them on. To this day, the tread on the bottom is still in pretty good shape and they are still comfortable. I work inside a jail and have had many situations were co-workers go sliding past me because of lack of traction. (They are buying tennis shoes for comfort.) I would recommend these boots to anyone in the security or police field. Over 15 months of wear and tear, and just now considering replacing them with another pair, although I know I could stretch them out for another couple of months. (As others have stated, "A zipper would be a great addition.")
Had this for 2 months now and I like it! When it rains I don't get soaking wet and that's a big plus for me. The only problem is that it runs slightly big I'm 5'7 with an average body and a M is a bit big, I recommend sizing down a bit. As far as quality goes I must say it's good, I was hit by a car while riding my bike and fell to the floor and I was surprised to see that the jacket was not ripped at all!! It was only ripped from my elbow but that was no big deal. So I'm happy with the product and I would definitely recommend it
I had first heard of the GSG9 from a motorcycling friend. I was shopping for motorcycle boots, and was mixed between full-blown moto-specific boots, combat boots, and timberlands. Having seen the GSG9 on him, and having seen all the cool features, I decided to give it a shot and shell out the much-higher than usual price. Well, take it from a year and a half of motorcycling, offroading, trail hiking, and outdoor work, these are well worth it. Oh and i've been down in them on the bike (with no ill effects). Still going strong, though I need a replacement sole. The first thing you will notice, is that they feel much more like sneakers than a work or combat boot. They are LIGHT and soft. Which is a huge bonus when you spend all day walking around or shifting the bike, or whatever else the day throws at you. Traction is phenomenal on slick surfaces (ever put your foot down on a motorcycle and found that it was sliding away from you? not in these you won't). They are comfortable in cold, they're not bad in heat, and they definitely outlast anything i've ever worn (usually I went through 2 pairs of timberlands or combat boots a year).
The look of these boots beats anything out there. Bates, 5.11, Converse, who ever. These boots look good. As soon as you put them on you'll feel the AdiPRENE technology cushioning the bottom of your feet. At first it will be firm but it eventually settles leaving a formed cushion that gives you a very comfortable boot. These are light weight waterproof boots that feel like sneakers. they have very good support around the ankles and the TRAXION allow it to function out in rough terrain. The things I dislike about these boots. The laces they come with are really long sneaker laces. They should come with the stronger boot laces most boots come with. Another thing that has to do with the laces is one of the lace loops that's right in the middle of the boot is really weak and will break if you pull to hard when your tying up. The lack of a side zipper is a turn off, this means your going to have to tie and untie every time. Overall the Adidas GSG9 is a well designed boot with a couple flaws. If you want a boot that doesn't feel like a boot and more like a comfortable pair of shoes these are for you.
I have used a lot of boots to work patrol and the Adidas GSG 9.2 is by far the best. Everywhere I have used the boot either in the summer or the spring I have found them to be comfortable throughout my shift and beyond. I have have my first one for about six years and it's still good with no sign of falling apart. I mean six rough years of walking the beat even using them to compete in the Lowell, MA Winterfest human dog sled. The boot overall is durable and built to last for as long as you take care of it. I have recommended the GSG 9.2 to several colleagues and they love it Thank You Adidas just make a wide version for wide Feet folks!
I've worn tactical boots for 10 years and done by fair share of asking people and googling and the gag9.2 is the best boot i have ever worn. It fits and feels like a well made running shoe and has more grip than it probably should have. Not much else to say about it, it's a high quality boot build properly by a company that knows shoes.
I had purchased a set of GSG 9.2's in march and had worn them consistently for several months until June. Unfortunately unlike my first pair this pair started to come apart on the right toe. I immediately contacted adidas about the issue and they were extremely helpful. I fronted the cost of the new boots and they covered the sending back of the old boots. I got the new boots in the day after calling and sent my old boots back. They were received and I was credited back the money. This review is more about Adidas's customer support. I still think that the boots are great and will continue to tell Other officers about the benefits of these boots especially now that I has had a minor issue and it was resolved without any problems. Thanks Adidas.
I was extremely skeptical about the slip-resistance of the boots on flat smooth surfaces just by looking at the tread pattern. I was pleasantly surprised by how wrong I was. I am an automotive technician in a new shop with concrete floors that are epoxied and very smooth. These boots provide excellent traction on the floor especially when wet with water or anitfreeze and do ok in oil trans fluid(no footwear sticks to slick floor with oil or trans fluid on it). I will probably continue to buy these for the rest of my days. Adidas has always been my favorite brand and I am glad to be able to wear them to work as well.
I’m a big guy 6’2” 330 lbs. and these boots give great support for my ankles but they are still light and comfortable. I had to cook at a rodeo here in Texas last weekend and 8 hours on my feet in 103 degree weather and the boots kept my feet feeling fine! I read about these boots in the book Seal Team Six and everything the author said about them is true.
I have worn these for nearly a year. They are my go to boot. Very comfortable. They size about a half a size small. 9.5 buy 10. Waterproof as advertised. Uppers wear very well. Ball of the foot on the sole is wearing faster than I would like. Some lugs have broken off from that area. Sure would have liked to give these a 5 star rating as it is a very comfortable daily wearing boot.
