Whether you're dropping into an active scene, or getting ready for a hike, the Metro series provides comfort and stability that you won't find in traditional boots. A custom molded phylon EVA midsole increases comfort, without any additional weight. Texon stability provides lateral support and torsional rigidity.
What this means is you will have a boot that is as flexible as you are, and comfortable enough that you will barely notice them on.
The Metro series has seen extensive use by Police and LEO, Firefighters, EMT/EMS, and other public safety industries. Throughout the years, the results are absolute - the Metro series meets and exceeds the standards of the men and women who keep us safe.
Non-metallic rust proof hardware, side zipper, non-slip sole, and the heel air cushion are just some of the features provided in the Metro series. Knowing that your gear works is one thing, understanding that your gear can not fail is our standard.
When lives are at stake, failure is not an option. Years of innovation in the boot industry have led us towards the materials and tread that make the Metro series a consistent choice for first responders in urban environments.
The Metro series is a seamless addition to your uniform. With a polishable heel and toe, you can keep your boots clean and professional for any and all formal events. Exceed your uniform standard and performance with Original S.W.A.T.
I work 12 hour shifts as corrections officer and I've tried boots that cost over $150 and let me tell you something, I WILL NEVER BUY ANY OTHER BOOTS BUT SWATS! These boots fit perfectly and the second my toes touched the top of the boot it felt so soft and comfy. I walk all day long and I have no pain in my feet any more. They shine up really good too. The zipper just makes it even easier for on and off.
I will never buy a product from Original S.W.A.T. again. I have had these boots for 35 days and ALREADY there is delamination with the cheap leather that was used. The boot is made with laminated black leather. Not leather which is dyed black (I imagine this is a way to produce this boot cheaply in CAMBODIA where it's made!!), but now the laminated membrane which is GLUED to the leather is beginning to peel away.... After only 35 days! And I'm not even on my feet all day!! NOT ACCEPTABLE!! And of course, I'm 5 days over my return window. Here's a word of advise. Spend a little extra money and buy a boot from a PROVEN, reputable boot manufacturer. I wouldn't buy these boots again if they were $10 at a yard sale!
My first impressions: most comfortable boots I've ever worn out of the box. They are lightweight and I can stand in them for a shift with no unexpected fatigue or discomfort. I really like the side zipper. The tread doesn't handle ice as well as my old Bates boots.
I went with these as they were on sale and got them for $82 dollars, they already went up to $89 dollars today.
These are awesome boots, and last a long time, my second pair, I always purchase and install inserts for more padding due to knee issues, and they have enough room height wise inside to allow for this, which is nice.
After seeing the prices of duty boots at my local uniform shop, I hit up Amazon. (I found boots similar to these for $130+ at the uniform shop!)
Updating original review: I have worn these for less than 30 days at around 6 hours a day, and they are falling apart. The fabric at the heel is ripping and exposing the hard plastic structure which is now rubbing my heel and makes them nearly impossible to wear. I have a pair of Bates that I bought in Bahrain and wore for 12 hours a day for 7 months straight and then the last year and half as well and they are still in better shape than what these are right now.
These boots are comfortable, but they don't last. Less than ONE year and they've split at the base of the toes in the "leather" uppers. Not impressed. I"ll be moving on to another brand, preferably Made In Canada or the USA.
What can I say. These are amazing boots. Right out of the box they fit perfectly and are super comfortable.
Love these boots
Awesume pair of boots
Awesome boots. I've had for around 1 year. Still in good shape a zippers are not broken. Use every day for work. I usually get two pair a year of the boots work supplies us but not now. Worth every penny
SWAT Boots are the only boots i rely on for comfortability and durability day in and day out.
Comfy boots and doesn't hurt my feet.
Nearly as warm as waterproof versions but the accessibility factor helps immensely. The zipper is of high quality and after using for 2 months now, no issues. SWAT seems to make great boots that last. My waterproof version from 2 years ago, daily use, are still in great condition.
very good boots, very comfortable
Very comfortable, but they fall apart fast. I bought these 4 months ago and they're done. I've never had a pair of boots fall apart this quickly.
