If you need a cheap pair of tactical boots

Post by Rabid-Weasel » Sat Feb 19, 2011 7:18 pm

I got these from Gander Mountain today, they were 114.99, marked down to 69.99 and they showed on my reciept for $49.99.
Converse, 6 in boot with zipper
They had black, a mossy color, or coyote brn. The Khaki was not on sale.
Not too bad for an extra set or if you have nothing.
Since I just got them I cannot comment on comfort.
They are similar to the ones in the pic

Decent deal, the problem with boots with zippers is that if the zippers break. Your boot is done, on the spot. You can replace laces with 550 cord, you can't replace zippers.

+1 on what Fatal said. I busted a zipper on my boots and now I'm gonna have to buy a new pair.

Although not replaceable in the field, a cobbler can replace a broken zipper, if the boot is worth the cost.

I had zippers installed in favorite boots which were not factory installed that have lasted for years.


I can attest to Converse comfort but the pair I had did not give me adequate support.

With respect,
