Very comfortable but don't last long.

I've had these boots for 4months and they're starting to come apart at the toes. The boots are very comfortable for running/ walking and look cool. I just wish they'd lasted longer

Why no zipper on the ladies?

So I love this shoe & my husband loves this shoe. they only problem is they are about half a size too big. they are super comfortable and I love them but would be better 1/2 a. size smaller... so why not just add a zipper to the ladies version? or make smaller sizes for the men?

Poor Quality

The right shoe has defective stitching inside the boot which created an unnecessary fold of hard fabric material. Not sure how the shoe passed (QC). The defective flap rubs into the ankle causing extreme discomfort. UA would only accept a return in-store. Unfortunately, I live too far from a retail store.

Light weight book

The boot is comfortable and light weight. I enjoy the zipper on the side. It feels like you are wearing a tennis shoe. It s a great boot if you work Corrections.

Comfortable but not sturdy

These boots are extremely comfortable, easy to walk and run with. Only problem is the laces seem to have fallen apart, they are coming apart, wonder if UA will send a new non defective pair. Also be careful you can rip side easy, that happened to mine.

Comfortable but poor quality

I'm on my second pair. I now have a cushy desk job and these still fall apart after a year. It's difficult to find this style of boot with non-leather materials so I crossed my fingers and hoped the second pair would out perform the first but they both were falling apart after a year of 90% desk work.

Fell apart

Fell apart in 30 days- used in light duty only. I was super excited to buy my first pair of UA shoes and the soles fell off

Very comfortable boot, light weight.

This is my second pair. They are very comfortable and light weight. Feels like wearing a tennis shoe with more support. The only negative is traction on hard surfaces, especially indoor wet surfaces. Other than that, a great boot.

This boot is poorly designed

I've had these boots just only five months and i already have separation near the toe of the boot and the tread is worn out already. This is really disappointing not having alot of money due to the pandemic and now the new boots i purchased fail and now i have to buy another pair.

Great shoe for everything EXCEPT ICE and Grease

I've been wearing this boot for about 3 years. I am currently on my 3rd set of nearly everyday wear. I wanted something that looked sleek and professional off the job. Water is definitely not a problem with this long as it is above 32 degrees. This is where I hate this shoe.. ICE is NOT this shoe's best friend. Over Christmas 2020, I went up to my cabin in the mountains and there was a thick patch of ice on the driveway. I'm almost never around ice so I didn't know how this shoe would hold up. I as soon as walked on it, I slipped and broke my leg in 2 places. Now, it isn't 100% the shoe's fault, but due to the design and tread pattern, I assumed it would be a bit better for ice. I've used cheaper shoes that do much better on ice. This shoe ALSO does not do well with grease (And I assume blood). So, if you are working out on the ice a lot, would NOT recommend this shoe. For other California activities, Highly recommend it. Address the grease and/or ice traction and ill give it 5 stars ;)
