I have a pair of these 5.11 lace up shoes, and once on, they conform beautifully to my feet. I can wear them all day and hardly notice them.
Now the bad part…I wear a wide 10.5 or a normal 11. With this model, the 11.5 was too tight, and the pair I got and fell in love with is a 12! (By their sizing, anyway.)
Great shoe, runs small.
Bought a pair of these in 12 medium. I normally wear an 11.5. These shoes were so narrow that my feet would not fit into them. No matter how hard I tried, no matter how big or small the shoehorn, my feet would not enter these shoes. Wasted my money as I had to give them away. At least now there is a homeless man in Thailand with a nice pair of 5.11 shoes.
