Designed with the needs of law enforcement, military, and outdoor enthusiasts in mind, this boot is built to handle the toughest conditions and provide optimal performance in any situation.

Over the past few months I have been searching for a good boot that isn’t too bulky, provides excellent support, and is lightweight and comfortable.

The 5.11 Recon Urban Boot doesn’t seem like too much to ask, yet I have gone through several pairs without getting what I wanted.

– very comfortable right out of the box. No break in needed!
– light weight. Feels like your favorite pair of sneakers.
– durable construction. A lot of thought went into the design and materials.
– great tread. Not hiking aggressive, yet certainly can get the job done.
– superior ankle support without being stiff. Easy to move in and you really feel like they have you covered.
– speed laces work very well. They come laced up, just remove the packaging and you are ready to go.

– not made for thick socks. These fit to size with regular socks. Don’t expect to be able to double up or wear thick boot socks without being a little crowded.
