511 Tactical Taclite boot review

Check out the 511 Tactical Taclite boot review and you decide if this boot is good enough for your next adventure.

The 5.11 Tactical Men’s Taclite 8-Inch Leather Combat Work Boots, Style 12031, are tough boots made for hard work. They’re 100% leather, giving them strength and durability. The soles are made from sturdy materials too. These boots are 8 inches high with a 12-inch circumference around the ankle, providing good support. They’re designed to be lightweight and breathable, keeping your feet cool even in tough conditions. They have special padding around the ankles for extra comfort and stability.

The midsole is made to cushion your feet, with an ankle stabilizer for support. There are also air mesh panels to keep your feet ventilated. These boots have features like a composite shank for added strength, side vents to let air flow through, and special laces that won’t wear out easily. Plus, there’s a tracking logo in case you misplace them. They have great traction and won’t slip on oily surfaces. They’re also designed to wick away moisture, making them perfect for hot, dry, or tropical climates. Overall, these boots are built to last and keep you comfortable even during long, tough days on the job.


I talked to one of my friends who has a pair of these same boots. I’m really impressed with these boots; they’re fantastic. They feel so comfortable that I could easily run several miles without any issues. They handle weight really well, making them perfect for anyone involved in tactical movement or ruck sack marching, whether they’re deploying or just training. While they’re not suitable for backpacking trips, I do love wearing the 5.11 Taclite 6-Inch Boot in military uniform around my work center. Previously, I was a big fan of Danner combat boots, but after wearing them for long shifts, my feet would ache. Switching to the 5.11 boots has made a huge difference. Even during my 16+ hour shifts working in EMS and search and rescue operations in the California desert, these boots have proven to be both durable and incredibly comfortable. In fact, they’re so comfortable that it feels like I’m wearing sneakers instead of boots. Plus, they come at a much lower price compared to similar combat boots, making them an excellent choice.
