      I had two different pairs of clarino boots years ago. Both pairs were hands down the most uncomfortable pairs of footwear that I have ever owned. They were from two different manufacturers. I think one was Bates, but I don't recall the other right now. Anyway, they were hot in the summer and cold in the winter! Don't get me wrong, they looked very nice, well, that is, if you like the look of shiny plastic. If you are dead set on them, then go for it. In my way of thinking these might be acceptable for special occasions, like funerals or court, but I will never waste my money on them again.

          I burnt through three pairs during a six month academy, but we ran, and did d/t and p/t in them. I hate Coroframs (thank you towncop) they dont look good, they are uncomfortable, and are completely useless when it comes to running through a muddy field, sloshing through puddles, and working in snow and ice (zero traction). A pair of danners with a mediocre shine look better. Other than when worn in the academy, or for a funeral, Coroframs are worthless and should only be worn by POGs and whiteshirts.

            + 1. Best answer you're going to get. My agency issues the particular shoe. I'm retired now, still have a pair. They're great.

              Agreed, Bates. Bought a pair my senior year in high school for NJROTC. Still wear them now with CAP. I'm overdue for another pair though, these have a few nicks that aren't coming out
