  • Best Boots

    Ok guys, I need to try to find replacement boots for my bates, seeing that my department will be postponing replacements of uniforms until ending of next year I have to purchase a pair of my own. I need something with ankle support that is good for running seeing that I am in partol. There are so many boots out there so I dont know where to start. Some help please
    Over town, this should be interesting!

      I switched from original swat (I know, they were academy boots and they sucked!) to Danner Acadias. Never been happier. Not sure how mine will hold up in the subzero temps, but they have the goretex lining and are capable of being resoled. Mine were $240, so they aren't cheap, but many guys at my agency have been on the same set of Danners for 5+ years.

        +1 on the Danners. They are GREAT boots, probably the best on the market.

        If the $200+ price tag is a bit much for you, I'm also a big fan of the 5.11 series of boots.

              If not Danners, then Corcorans.

              I've got two pair of each, and wear the Danners in the winter and Corcorans in the summer. Both are excellent.

              Haven't tried to rebuild Corcorans and don't even know if it can be done, but Danners can be rebuilt. They are expensive but factor in the cost of replacing boots as well as the extended wear you get from good quality boots and the price is worth it.

              The reason for two pair of each is that I wear them alternately, letting the pair I wore today air two whole days before I wear them again. It really seems to make a difference in longevity. I heard somewhere that if you buy two pair of boots now and wear them alternately, they will last longer than one pair bought now & worn all the time, then replaced by second pair again worn all the time. I don't have the figures to prove that, but with almost 18 years in it seems to hold true.

                511 Tactical. $100 a pair (less than 1/2 what Danner Acasia boots cost), last a year or 2, warm, light and water proof.

                  Had Original Swat in the academy, they were not good boots. I purchased a pair of Danner Boots and love them, well worth the expense.

                    Did you try searching in the duty gear section? There are a few threads regarding duty boots and seems to be some good info there on select manufacturers.

                      I'm on my 3rd or 4th pair of Rocky Alpha's with the side zipper in close to 8 years and will continue to get them. Danners have an unbelievable reputation for comfort and durability, if you have the money. I've heard that Oakley's are good for the money too. Remember, if you're an LEO you can get them at a great discount at usstandardissue.com

                          I just recently bought a pair of 5.11 ATAC, and couldn't be happier. They're lite and have tons of ankle support.

                            Rocky, Portlands. You can get them with leather or nylon upper. Nylon breaths alot better. In 11 years in the military and law enforcement, they are the best boots I have EVER had!
