5.11 Skyweight RapidDry boot review by Jim T:
I think these are a great lightweight boot for what I am using it for which is border security in the field.
I wear a U.S. 9.5 fit,and i have broad feet,so a 9.5 reg or D sizing is just right for me. So I would probably go with that.
My buddy ordered a pair and he thought they ran a little small for sizing but each persons foot dimensions are different so be aware.
It is so much lighter than what i expected and I really like the grip even if your going through a wet rocky area.
The 5.11 Skyweight RapidDry boots are great for movability,and quite breathable.
So Definately will recommend this model and brand to others as I will probably buy another pair if these ever wear out.
