Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I purchased these boots having worn the Converse model for the past five years. First of all the quality control was not what I would have expected from Reebok, which makes me question if these were seconds or rejects that didn't pass Reebok's QC. I could be mistaken, however, I would expect that Reebok would not let these pass their QC process. The fit was larger and they didn't support my feet as the Converse model did. I could wear my Converse all day walking on cement floors without pain. With these boots, my feet started hurting after four hours. I've attached photos of the lack of quality control (foam extending out from stitching).
My 5 star rating is provisional, based solely on my initial impression and close inspection, since I have only worn them for 2 days as of this review. They appear to be quite well designed and well made, of premium materials. Time will tell how durable and long-lasting they are. They do run a tad narrow, so I recommend getting a one width wider than what you would wear in an athletic shoe. Also recommend treating them with a high-quality silicone suede shoe spray immediately upon receiving them - to guard against scuffs, stains, and water marks. Breathe nicely and are a good summer-weight boot. Don't recommend them for serious cold-weather duty.
Didn't really get to try them. I have been using the Reebok 8895 in Rough Out desert and I love them. Decided to try the black since our fire uniforms are navy blue. Got the boots quick, but when I tried them on the zipper would only go down about half way. On closer inspection, it appears the stitcher person had a bad day that day because they stitched the heavy thread right across the zipper - sewing it shut! I guess I could have tried to get a razor blade and cut the stitches, but then figured it would come unraveled from there. Naaaahhh... send em back! Have another pair coming and I guess we'll see.
