Last question: anyone have any experience with Converse boots? I'm leaning towards 5.11, Original SWATs and Magnums, but I found some Converses that would be considerably cheaper. If they're shyte, I don't want to even consider them though.. Just wondering if they are worth a look, or if I should steer clear.

The boots are CSA approved safety footwear. They weigh about as much as a pair of running shoes and feel about the same. Once you put them on and lace them, you get in and out by the zipper after that. My boots are on and ready in about 15 seconds.
Safety is my job and I love these boots. Cool and moisture wicking in the summer and warm and dry in the winter.
For safety boots, you can't beat these. I've never had a problem with drying out or cracking and the zippers, heck the whole boot, is as good as the day I started wearing them 2 years ago.
