Been wearing those Lem's since those posts, 8-14 hrs a day, standing outside (no breaks), 5 days a week. The black cordura is faded from the sun, and scuffed in places, but not worn through; the sole wore pretty well. All in all they are outstanding boots. I wore them in the snow, and as long as I was in powder, I was warm and dry. I wore them once in extended, heavy rain, and they sucked bad, but that's to be expected. On the beach? No sand in my boots. Hiking? No problem. With jeans, khakis, tactical wear? They're a little bit odd, but fairly unnoticeable, and sometimes even look cool.

Fuck all that, though. My feet don't hurt with the super long hours standing. After a 14hr day, my feet are tired and sore, but not from being smashed in some shitbox of a boot, just from doing work all day. No back/knee pain, no achilles issues (which some boots cause for me), nothing.

Best boots ever, I recommend for light (non-ruck, civilian) use. Just bought my second pair, brown this time. My boss didn't say a word today when I rolled in with em.
