Received my adidas tac boots and have been wearing them for a week. Very thin and super light weight boot, which I really like. Fits like a true running shoe. To elaborate it’s not like a tennis shoe or cross trainer. Very snug and narrow fit, but comfortable. If you roll your ankle easily then these aren’t the boots for you. That being said I’m a 10 1/2 in other boots and that’s what I have in my adidas tac boots.

The fit is perfect. If you are the type to wear thick socks I would go a half size larger. Aggressive tread which I really like as I work a predominantly rural area and spend a lot of time on natural surfaces (grass, gravel, dirt). Equally good on paved surfaces and indoors. Really like the traction/grip. They haven’t been tested in a foot pursuit yet but I’m confident they will be perfect.

Think these will be great as a summer boot in Canada. Wouldn’t dream of wearing these in the winter. There is just no insulation. If you carry a boot knife you won’t be able to do that with these. One thing I don’t like about them is there are no eyelets, just holes for the laces. I find it very difficult to loosen my laces and therefore find it difficult to put them on and take them off.

Would like to have seen a quick lace setup on the upper two positions. It looks like they are designed to be worn in the running shoe style with the top open which would defeat the purpose of a tac boot. I like that they can take polish as that’s a stipulation with my department. I can’t see them lasting more than a year or two but for the price I would say there is no question. Definitely worth it. I would highly recommend these boots. If anyone has any questions drop me a line.

I have personally worn the Lowa Zephyr GTX (check out my review) boot for several years now.
