I'm a UPS driver and am very happy with these boots so far. Comfort is a must for me and so far so good.

I had never purchased boots like this before, so I wasn't quite sure what I was getting into with these. I went with the other reviewers and hoped for the best. That's what I got...the best. From the first time I tried them on, they were incredible. There was no break-in necessary. I did remove the insert and put in a gel insert since I will be walking and standing a lot in them. They are roomy enough in the toe box to allow for heavy socks in the winter but not overly roomy so that feet in thinner socks slide around. I haven't had them long, so I can't comment on how long the bottoms will last yet. The only critique I have is that the top lace eyelet is not a hook like the one below it. It would have been more convenient when putting them on and taking them off if both of the top two lace eyelets were hooks. Spending an extra few seconds is not a big deal though. Awesome boots...quality for the money.

I use these working on a factory floor. Walking about 5 miles in a 12 hour shift. Very comfortable and light. The cushioning on the soles is excellent, and good arch support. Great protective boot for a man who doesn't want to wear sneakers.

I'd also recommend: Salomon Quest 4D

When SFC discontinued my preferred style for the second time, it was time to move on. I searched for days, found these and just took a chance. As a mechanic, I need a soft toe that's really comfortable and this is it. Great fit and the heel is easy to clean. The only negative would be that the lace needs to be remove from the "hook" at the top every time they are removed. I'm willing to spend the extra ten seconds a day though. I will buy a spare pair just in case these are discontinued.

I'm a paramedic and I wear these shoes forty plus hours a week. I'm on my second pair and they are simply the best. They're light, comfortable and durable. I've tried a few other brands but these win.
