These shoes are rough. The safety toe rubs against the side of my big toes. There is nothing I can do even sitting or driving is so uncomfortable. I even returned my first pair for a pair of wides still no good. These shoes look great & they are built to last but something is way off about the safety toes. My feet get so beat up I can't wear them for any duration.

I am in automotive school and wanted some steel-toed shoes. These shoes offer the safety I require and the style that I enjoy! My instructor was thrown off guard at first, saying I had to have slip resistant shoes in the shop. He was surprised to find out that these were not only slip-resistant, but steel-toed, as well. My only few complaints is that after a month or so of wearing them, I noticed my toe had ripped the fabric lining inside that covers the steel. Also, they aren't the most comfortable. If you going to purchase these, I recommend some orthotics. Overall, though, good shoes!

Love these shoes! Have worn them several times already. They are not has heavy as other steel toed shoes/boots, and my legs and feet are not tired or sore after wearing them for hours. Highly recommended!

Purchased these boots for my son's first real man's job. Works for the city doing concrete, asphalt, mowing, ditch digging...oh yeah, also fills graves. On his feet all day and loves his boots! Had to return the first pair as they were a half size to large. Just not the same as his casual wear or soccer shoes. Return was easy and had the correct size in two days. I'm impressed.

I've been wearing these on a factory floor for three weeks. They are very comfortable, almost as comfortable as a pair of tennis shoes. Much better than wearing work boots. The steel toe allows plenty of room, I do not even know it is there. I ordered the EE extra wide because I like a little extra room but without trying on the D width I cannot tell you the difference between widths.

Nice, low profile safety toe shoe. Casual look and good grip on sole. Steel toe box a little tight - can fill it on inside and outside of foot.

Only had these about a month now, but out of the box they fit like a glove. Leather is soft and well-conditioned. They offer plenty of support, and I can stand in them all day with no noticeable fatigue. All around a great boot for me.

Taking into consideration what theses are a steel toes shoe, these are very comfortable for what they are. I have not had any issues with rubbing. When switching over from a steel toes boot I was pleasantly surprised at how light these were in comparison. I would definitely recommend!

Recently ordered these shoes after my workplace started requiring us to wear steel toe shoes. I had a bad experience ordering them from a different site in which the shoes were entirely too big and I ended up having to pay too much to send them back. I decided to go with Zappos as I've had good prior experiences with them and shipping is free both ways. These shoes arrived very quickly and fortunately these ones fit perfectly. I do have to say that if you aren't used to steel toe shoes, expect these to hurt your legs and feet for a few days. Once broken into, these shoes were fairly comfortable. I do plan on buying some insoles as they still hurt my feet a bit. Overall, I'm quite satisfied with my purchase and will continue to buy from Zappos.

The style looks good but they did not hold up. They shoe completely fell apart after about two months. The glue broke down and sides tore away from the base after a month of light, every day use. These shoes look good but are not worth it. You are just paying more for the CAT brand, which is just made by Wolverine.

I was able to wear these shoes to work immediately. I love them! The tongue was a bit thick which meant tying them looser than I normally would for the first week. They look great and broke in quickly.

From the pictures I was unsure if the shoe was going to be too narrow, but it seems to fit very true to size I wear a size 10 1/2 ordered a size 10 1/2 and it is very comfortable throughout the day. I was also a bit concerned about the color of the boot, seems to be a bit more at a dark brown than green and the toe cap more greenish. I absolutely love the look. The boot is firm but flexible, very tough, and a great work boot.

Quick review - bought Timberland PRO Magnus 6", Irish Setter 83608, and Caterpillar 2nd Shift. I have very wide feet (10.5 EEEE), and found this to be decent at a 10.5 EE. Comfort was good standing up. Also, this one was better than the Irish Setter when bending forward at the toes to kneel. Timberland was too narrow at the toe - keeping the Caterpillar from the three. I don't use them often or severely, so comfort was the primary purchasing criteria.

I added insoles because I found the bottoms of these to be a bit hard. I was happy with them before but I am very happy with them now. They feel solid and I believe they will last for a long time.

Love the skater style for a slip resistant work shoe. The sole is a bit heavy, but I think they will last much longer than sneaker type soles. I wear wide and these are just a tad shy in the toe box. The stitching on the left toe area has rubbed, but a little moleskin on my toe and it's all good. I'm thinking the leather needs some wear in time (only one weeks wears so far). The arch support is great, but I could use a little more cushion between me and the floor. Still, I love them.

Not the best, but a pretty good deal for the price. Heavy walking (ups/downs) is hard on the heel. They strike me as being a bit slow to break-in.

I have worn these shoes for 2 weeks. They started out very stiff but as I walk all day in my shoes once they were broken in I now get a blister on the top of my big toe. I now wish I would have sent them back.

I've been wearing these boots for years. They were very comfortable from day one and I had no break in issues. I started buying these boots in 2001 and I still have the very first pair. I wore them working in some very tough places including four years in Afghanistan and two in Iraq. These are work boots, not dress or casual shoes. If you take care of your equipment, including your work boots, they will last you for many years.
