Does anyone have these boots? Do they run a half size as larger as some boots? Are they comfortable and durable?

Well no one has wore them I guess. I went ahead and ordered them. I got them on an email special from botach. Price 19.99 a one hundred dollar savings.

These are not the hot weather boots, these appear to be the all weather boots that are not vented.
I have them and started a similar thread in SF.  I wear mine .5 sizes larger for socks.  If these are the same boots I was issued, you just got the deal of the century.  I love my boots, they just took along time for me to break in - but I also recieved the 1st production run issued to the USMC after testing.  For 20 bucks, if they suck, sell them for 30.  It is a steal and I orders 2 pair for myself (giving me 3 total) and a pair for the wife.  

Now if I could just find the issue desert boot for the same price - great boot, but breathes easier, broke in better and was lighter.

Also, I want to know if these are goretex and cordra - like my other Altma boots are.  I will post comparison pics when mine get here at the end of the week.

Then I may have just rebought my most favorite boots ever!!!

As a long time botach shopper - you avoid getting a fat concrete dick up the ass by calling and checking the stocking stats.  If they have it, or you order it from their "email deals" you dont get boned.  Calling before ordering is a must with them - but that is what it takes to get a good deal.
