Aerostich Combat Lite Boots
- Product Review (submitted on February 26, 2012):
- I bought these boots in December 2011 and have waited until now to write a review that would not be based just upon first impressions, which were very positive. I switched from lace up logger boots to these after my new pair of loggers, without steel toes, began to bother me where the boot contacted the shifter. Out of the box the Combat Lites appear to be high quality boots made of heavy leather. If you are switching from a lace up boot these will take some getting used to as they can't be laced tightly around your calves and ankles. The sizing was a bit on the large side so to get a good fit I had to purchase a thicker inner sole which helped a lot but the boots still felt a little loose around my lower legs which took some getting used to. For me they were difficult to break in. I didn't soak them but ended up using them for morning walks, about 25 miles worth, before they felt pretty well. The walks did cause blisters but now after nearly three months they are comfortable but still breaking in. At first shifting was difficult but that is no longer an issue. The boots look and feel as though they will last a long time and when they need replacing I'll be back for another pair.
