“I did receive 2 pairs of LITESpeed boots from your company. I have had an opportunity to wear both boots, both in patrol and in tactical type situations. The boots do appear to run a little wide. Actually a good thing for me since I have such a wide foot and generally tend to have a problem with boots being narrow. However these boots were even a little wide for my foot. Right of the bat I found that the boots are incredibly convenient. I realize that Altama may not have been the first company to put a zipper in a boot. However I have worn many boots that zipped up the side and found this zipper system to be much more efficient. Normally boots that have zippers I always have to unzip and untie them to get them to fit my foot right. With both the high and low pair of ALTAMA’s I have not had to untie the boot once. The zipper has sufficed while keeping the boot comfortable and maintaining a good fit. This is completely unique to any boot I have worn in 7+ years in the police world (that’s a lot of boots). The boots proved to be very light providing much needed comfort. In the SWAT world you need to almost be able to forget that you are wearing boots, and in no way can have boots that hamper your abilities in any way. I almost had that feeling with these boots. Maybe they still need to be broken in a little more…the boots are newer still and I have not had a chance to completely break in both pairs. I did get a chance to go on numerous runs with the boots. Even, new, out of the box, my feet did not feel uncomfortable or blister in any way. It does take a while to get a feel for you exact feelings on a boot, however I would definitely rank both the high and short version of ALTAMA LITESpeed boots right up there with some of the best boots I have worn. Another great quality of these boots is their ability to be so useful in the tactical world but still take a shine for the patrol side of things. Thanks again for the boots. I am still enjoying the comfort and use I am getting out of them and will be sure to spread the good word with fellow officers and teammates as new gear is constantly talked about at each meeting. If you have any other questions of my or need any more feedback feel free to contact me at any time. ” – Thomas Dicker

“I ordered a pair of LITESpeed boots three months ago for use while riding my motorcycle. I usually ride my bike to work, so I had anticipated and planned on switching to a more comfortable pair when I arrived at my office. From day 1, it became clear that wouldn't be necessary. These boots are so comfortable that I can wear them on a 12 hour day, and never need a breather. Thanks for your great work and product. ” – Adam Carter
