The left heel wore through in just over a year. I can see a hole where it wore through to the plastic. I will say the boot was comfortable while it lasted. However I wont be buying Belleville again.
I've owned several pairs of Belleville and I was surprised that these did not fit as expected. I'm used to Belleville boots running 1/2 to 1 size large. I had exchanged these for the next size up. Once I got the correct size, they were very comfortable. They didn't give the best ventilation compared to other boots I've owned in the past. I can only attribute this to the design of the boot. This boot is more contoured to the shape of your foot so the boot hugs more of your foot which makes it warmer in hot weather. That's my theory. Other than that, these were of the same quality and durability I've had with other pairs of Belleville.
Great if you're looking for a form fitting, low profile boot. The tongue is strangely long. These Sabre boots fit snug so don't get these if you want a lot of extra space in your boot. I have narrow feet and a regular width was just right.
Very impressed with these Belleville 533 boots. I ordered the next size up after reading online reviews. Fit was good. Comfort good. Very little break in time. Being in law enforcement I've worn many different boots and I have to say these are excellent in comfort and durability. Thanks Belleville for a quality product at a fair price.
Great boots but ran small. I ordered 1/2 size up and perfect.
I bought these for my husband who's in the parajumper school. He asked me to find a tighter fitting boot so that it doesn't get caught on anything. I found these after doing research online. He's very happy with the Sabre boot. I've heard him say they are comfortable and seem durable, too. He's only had these for 3 weeks so time will tell with the durability.
