I was issued these exact boots in the Navy when I was working aboard an Aircraft carrier and not only was I impressed then due to the torture I put them through but also because of the comfort. Now 8 years later I have left the Navy and I wear these everyday for my job and I am still impressed with the workmanship and comfort these boots provide. I am on my feet all day long and at the end of the day I have not pain whatsoever! awesome boots great quality! I love these boots.
