I would absolutely buy another pair. Sturdy, structured support, while very light. Comfortable from the very first day. A size smaller than my usual fit perfectly.
Very good, high quality and well built boots. Out of the box they are very comfortable and supportive. I was slightly worried about sizing, as according to the size guide I needed to order a full size down from my typical boot size. The 9.5 fit perfectly despite my skepticism. They look narrow but do not feel narrow; ample room in the toe box for (what I feel is) an average foot. Vibram sole is very sturdy and will provide great traction in rough terrain. While they are GoreTex, my feet do not get as sweaty as in my other GTX boots - so they are clearly well ventilated.
My two gripes are small but worth mentioning. Firstly, I wish there was a pocket on the tongue for excess lacing. A lot of other boots come with one and this is great for military. Secondly, I worry about how long the laces will stand up to the metal eyelets - I can already see some abrasion starting after less than a month of wear.
As a first responder I need quality footwear - the AKU pilgrims are so much better than I had hoped.
