I may have tried them all and by far the best are the Lalo brand. They are pricey but will last you! The 5.11 are my fav’s for cost, weight, and abuse. You can literally go hard in these the first day you get them. mine have cleaned up great in the mud bogs of socal and the high surf. I used them in KOKORO over 2.5 years ago! I think the Nike Boots are also great boots. the Bates are great if you are planning a military career as they take a few months to break in but last you a long long time.
Dear Coach, Was going to spend 280.00 on LALO amphibians. Are they worth the money? I’ve heard they are extremely comfortable and practical. Don’t know how long they last. Wanted to save them for KOKORO.
What size of boot do you recommend in comparison to your everyday shoes (considering socks and sock liners)? Also, would prefer a lighter version of boot as long as I don’t sacrifice durability. Is there a difference between the 5.11 Skyweight and the Urban Taclite in this regard? Thanks
