When Sport Shoes met Tactical Shoes Review by M. Arias
I´m from Mexico, 32 yr-old
I have tried the traditional tactical shoes, hard as car tire
dificult to get softer. My feet kill me at the end of day.
I bought a pair of them. and I feel a huge difference with these Adidas GSG-9. The Comfort of Athletic Shoes & Tactical Performance in 1 pair of shoes. (Posted on 10/10/2017)
Operational Wear Review by Joe
Good tip first GET YOUR FEET MEASURED FIRST.
I am a UK 10.5 and the Adidas tend to size quite small so consider at least one size up. I bought a UK 11 which was a bit snug so will be looking for a bigger boot.
After 12 years of regular patrol work this boot is by far the best I have worn.
Magnums in various formulations are not comparable.
The GSG9 takes some getting used to in the high boot form but provides excellent linear and laterial support for the foot and ankle.
It is relatively light and is a stable platform for running in if needed.
The soles are good on wet surfaces and steady on snow/ice.
I would say these boots wear quicker than a magnum but comfort is out of this world.
Twin this boot with a decent sock like Bridgedale light hiker or similar (in black of course) .
One other consideration this Boot looks trainer like so for more formal duties consider an alternative but two pairs so far I am well impressed with the GSG9. (Posted on 20/11/2013)
