    Why would anyone want an imported [probably from Viet Nam] boot that has no Gore-Tex, a supposedly once 'secret' sole pattern, no insulated option, and costs $500????

    If they really wanted to demonstrate fireproof boots, they'd show them on the floor next to a recliner.

    WHAT... cops no longer wear issued Corfam low quarters? Next you'll be saying departments are considering scraping revolvers, going to semi's and issuing everyone a handheld radio.

    This place is fun... it's like reading Alice in Wonderland.

    I guess you like them pretty well. Looks like they might be comfortable.

    How is this new? Looks like the same old assault boot they've had for years.

    I've been wearing boots in uniform for the past 17 years. They are the most comfortable boot that I have ever worn. I put my Danners in the closet 3 years ago and never looked back. (I get $100/ yr. boot allowance)

    The ONLY problem is they squeak sometimes when the soles are wet and you are walking on a tile floor.

    Sorry - but what use is a boot that you can jump rope on lava with if the rest of you catches on fire? They need to make underwear out of this stuff first. I'll hobble around on stumps if the boys are still functional.

    Another thing to part an overpaid range commando or mall ninja from their money. I don't know many cops who will pony up the cash for a pair of Danner's much less a pair of Oakleys for 5 bills.

    If they're over $110, I am not buying them because that is all our reimbursement will cover.
