SWAT experience and general daily wear..
Summer time daily wear - Salomon Speed-cross with or without socks they are awesome
fall winter Salomon XA Pro Mid
the only issue ive had is the speedlace tensioner coming loose on just one very annoying having to constantly tighten them and a no go for duty
Best that ive had for SWAT were LOWA Zephyr...durable like the Salomon XA but lighter and as comfortable
merrills wear out way to fast for me so i stick with Salomon now
...laces getting loose used to irk me to till it occurred to me to put cordlocks in them, the round kind works best...
