Good service but poor product

6th December 2019 by
I have been wearing this style of boot for many years as a walking boot as i have wide feet and find these very comfortable. Unfortunatly my latest pair were not up to standard due to a change in manufacturer, poor quality & very small for the stated size. The previous supplier `Highlander` were very good boots but these are nothing like.

Very very good assault boots

16th November 2019 by
I bought these boots last year September and i have had no issue with them. the only reason i have to buy new ones is because i stupidly added hairspray to try to make them shine better. Apart from that these are excellent and will last very long. They shine brilliantly

Five star cadet boots

4th November 2019 by
I think for the price these are a good starter boot for cadets. I was in the army for 12 years before returning to civi life and now my son's joined the army cadets. These are the boots everyone wears at his unit and he has found them to be comfortable and lightweight. They polish up great as well.

Poor sizing

The size of the boot ordered no where near matched the size of other boots worn by my husband. Materials were inferior. Dont be fooled into think they are a replica for the army issued boot.

Not perfect but up there with the best of them

10th October 2019 by
Bought a pair of these assault boots in May 2017 and they've just this week clapped out. I have two pairs of boots which share the daily load. I work in an office with the occasional countryside excursion.

First impressions:
1) Really weird fit. Too wide and not long enough. My toes would hit the end of the boot but no matter how tight I did the laces they'd still feel loose around my foot. This problem was easily overcome by inserting two thick insoles into each boot, and then putting the insole which came with the boot on top. Once they were broken in they fitted perfectly and are totally comfortable.
2) Cheap looking plastic coated / laminated leather and cheap looking imitation stitching on welts.

In practice after broken in:
1) Grippy as a mofo. I have had a lot of boots in my life and I've got base over apex countless times at the music festivals. I have never once slipped over or lost my footing whilst wearing these boots. You can walk straight up muddy hills that other people are getting laughed at for slipping over on.
2) Totally waterproof. That cheap looking laminated leather and fake welts that I mentioned earlier? Turns out that's all part of the master plan. Slap a bit of polish on these bad boys and you can literally stand in a puddle without getting wet. That is, until they begin to wear out. I've never known any other leather boots to be totally waterproof.

3) Hard wearing.
The leather is still totally fine. The waterproof laminated skin has broken and cracked in places, allowing a minor amount of water to seep in, but can be fixed with polish.
The rubber soles split across the ball of the foot. That's what killed them. The grip has not worn out, but the sole has split clean through. This first occurred in August and I fixed it with some superglue. Now the whole sole on the right boot is breaking up and falling apart. Bin job.

Overview:
Good decent pair of boots. Will probably buy again.

Assault boots that do the job

Not terrible Assault Boots

19th July 2019 by
These are more of a look-alike than a reproduction of the original boots. Nothing like the same quality of materials. The real test is how long they last, which I'll find out (hopefully not too soon).

These are NOT genuine issue British Assault Boots

26th June 2018 by
These boots are not the original British Army Assault Boots. I spoke to the company and they are reproductions. I sent these back and got quickly refunded. Just wanted to let other customers know that the real British Assault High Leg Boot are not made anymore. British soldiers now wear Alt-Berg Defenders, Haix, Bates or Magnum boots.

Good Lightweight Boot

26th April 2018 by
I've had theses lightweight assault boots for more than 12 months now so I feel its time to write my review. After I first got them they took some wearing in (I walked to school in them for a bit which helped). The high leg design does provide good support and has stopped me twisting my ankles a number of times. I've used the boots on exercise and for expedition training and walked loads of miles with no problems. They always polish up well after a good clean and I would recommend to others.

Poor quality copy

5th April 2018 by
Just what is this boot meant to be? At this price I was expecting a new official MOD item. What arrived was a non-reinforced sole boot with no real toe protection. The stitching down the back of the boot was loose in parts and allowed the leather to flex/move far too much. These boot should be on sale for £20 or so. They box they arrived in had been re-boxed for return. Don't waste your time on these.

Comfortable and easy to break in...

These boots were comfortable and easy to break in. There was a problem with a split in the sole after 4 months of use but Cadet Direct offered a replacement and I've had no problems since.

Sizing a bit too small for me

30th March 2017 by
I received the boots, they are really very light which is perfect but unfortunately the size is coming up a bit too small. I bought same model as before in UK size 10 which normally goes well, but this time they were fitting smaller. Should write in the description to order one size bigger.

Best Boots

5th March 2017 by
My brother first got these boots for cadets in 2010 and used them for about a year. Then I got them after him as I joined cadets and I've loved them; they're really comfy and have lasted a long time and I only need to buy a new pair now. My feet stay dry and they are easy to clean and polish.

Best online assault boots

19th February 2017 by
I had been looking for black assault boots online as we have to wear black boots at cadets and these were definitely the best I could find. We had to send some back to another supplier before finding these ones. Sizing is good on these and they look like proper assault boots to me.

We bought these from the Cadet Direct website

6th February 2017 by
I've had these boots since September and they still look good and are comfortable. One thing they don't keep your feet dry forever in the field when raining as the leather does eventually get wet once the polish is washed off but I hope to get some waterproof ones for exercise use.

Indestructible

2nd November 2016 by
I must have owned at least 4 pairs of these boots since I started sea cadets and they are virtually invincible. The only reason I actually had to get new ones is because my feet are to big and nothing else and if that happens then you can easily sell them to another cadet for at least £25 as all you have to do is polish them a bit and they will look like they did on day one.

The ideal boot for a cadet.

9th June 2016 by
I've owned a pair of these boots for an extremely long time (around a few years) and I can honestly say they were worth every penny. The boot is extremely durable and can easily withstand field-craft exercises, long expeditions and long hours of drill practice. In addition they look superb when you give them some love with polish and will make you look extremely smart in parades. They're relatively comfy to wear providing you have the correct socks to prevent blisters etc. .Overall it's a brilliant boot, a bit on the expensive side but if you wear boots often then I'd highly suggest getting yourself a pair of these.

Combat boots- outstanding

14th April 2016 by
Incredibly easy to get on with, and very easy to break in! This year I am carrying out the 2016 Nijmegen March with Plymouth and cornwall wing, air cadets and these have prevented many blisters! I would and have recommended this product to all of my friends at my local unit.

Hardcore originals

11th April 2016 by
These boots could survive nearly anything. The rubber on the soles is really tough, and takes a long time to wear through.
The leather is prone to cracking but will last a long time if you polish them regularly like a good cadet, and let them dry slowly at room temperature instead of on a radiator in in an airing cupboard.

They are pretty hit and miss with how they treat you feet. I've had blisters from these (particularly at the back, above the heel), but also days where they've seen me through without a scratch. They WILL punish you if you take them on a long trek without breaking in first.

Great all-rounders. There's a reason they were issued to troops for so long.

Would recommend them

9th December 2015 by
I would recommend these boots to more junior cadets who attend an average amount of camps/ events. I have had my pair for just under 4 months and they are preforming reasonably well. Once I've grown out of them I'm looking forward to getting some Altbergs though.

Three years before soles wore out...

4th December 2015 by
Had these for three years now, have been excellent. But now the soles on both boots have begun to crack, allowing the sole to bend the wrong way, no longer waterproof and a bit unstable to walk on. However I may buy another pair as they are excellent whilst they last!

Simple and effective

14th September 2015 by
These boots although an older style and not nessesarily as comfortable as some more modern options have proved themselves to me. My previous grafters boots died after a year but my combat highs have lasted 3 years of pretty consistent use and are still going strong. They also look much better than the more modern boots. If your contingent is still in black boots these are the way to go, especially if you can get them from stores
