Good quality construction - should last a long while even under the heavy use I give them. Only thing I would change is wish they were taller for more ankle support - but that is a personal preference. Another note - these were comfortable from day 1 - almost no break-in time required. Unusual for a heavy work boot!

Although the boot is made of good materials and seems very durable, it is not very comfortable. I had to wear two pairs of socks as I began to get a blister on the back of one foot. The boot is also very tight, even with one pair of socks on.

The boots are very comfortable and took no time at all to break them in. They have good support and are not heavy so you don't get fatigued.

Boot Review - Husband has been wearing the boot for approximately 2 weeks now. Works in construction with a lot of walking and boot is uncomfortable due to stiffness of boot. Feet are very sore.

Great boots, great service - I accidentally ordered the wrong width boot. (standard instead of wide.) I sent them back and Zappos had a new pair at my door the same week! Can't go wrong with Zappos! P.S. Get the wide ones...for standard feet they are the best! Skinny feet go standard.

A boot to make it a little less like work. THE most comfortable workboot I have ever wore. As a steelworker and truckdriver, they get a workout daily. This is my 4th pair. The steel toe has saved mine more than once, and they wear good too. I wear mine many times instead of tennis shoes.

Pleased - The shoe is sturdy, comfortable and looks really great. Very macho. I stand for long hours working as a nightclub bouncer and do feel it becomes a little hard to stand in for long hours, but otherwise no complaints.

Very good boot - I ordered a pair for my husband to wear for work. He's a mechanic and is on his feet for 11 hours a day. He said they are very comfortable, but a little narrow. This is the second pair he has had of this brand and he is going to stick with them. Overall, a very good boot for a very good price.

My husband's favorite shoe - This is the only pair of shoes my husband owns. He works at a job where his feet could be hurt, so these definitely offer a lot of protection and the style is really great. It takes a little bit for them to be totally comfortable, considering he's on his feet a lot, but once they're formed, they're perfect!

Love them - the boots I purchased are a very nice boot, as a matter of fact, I sent them to a student in Egypt, as he has always wanted a pair. He loves them and so does everyone else, but I can't afford to send everyone that wants a pair to get them. Thanks ZAPPOS for the prompt delivery.

I'm a 20 y/o man and I've worn them since I was 16. I'm a very active teenager, so I wear them every day up 14 hours. Never I haven't have any serious problem. Nowdays they are very well worn, but I'll continue to wear them until I can. In summer I wear them without socks and it's fun! You must wear it!

My new work shoes - These boots, which I purchased recently, have been an excellent choice so far. I find them both comfortable and light and I also enjoyed the ease in which it took to receive these boots. Your online service is fantastic. I received the boots quickly and I think your service is superb.

Caterpillar 2nd Shift/ Steel Toe - This will be my third pair in three years. The other pairs are still usable, although too rough to shine and are not totally waterproof. I use these boots for the fire service; brush fires, blasting/ cutting details, and as dress station boots. They do shine nice, I tear the toes up in 1 year so they can't be dress shined. Very comfortable and a 6-hole zipper can be inserted.

Perfect boot - Great for working on site, great for the rodeo afterwards, great for dressing up. They shine up great and take about 2-3 years of faithfull wear to be rendered useless. I am just retiring these boots since they were put into service Christmes 2000. Well worth the money.

Great love 'em. I've owned my pair for 5 months, they have taken appx. 400 miles, daily wear and seven cars over the toes. They're great, but take 'em off before going through metal detectors, they set off the metal detector in the JFK museum and it took me a couple of minutes to remember my boots were steel toe. LOL.

great boots I have owned these boots for two years, I have worked groung construction, iron work, and worn them almost daily. They shine up real nice and can be worn as a fashionable boot. They have a double steel shank which is not advertised, but I know this for a fact as the airline security informed me of this (take them off before going through the detector, it will save you alot of time).

These are sturdy boots that are true to size. The leather exterior scuffs and scratches easily, but I wasn't too concerned with the appearance since I was getting them dirty anyway. I'm not a huge fan of steel toed boots in general, but these were pretty comfortable.

I found these boots to be moderately durable. The tread on the bottom didn't seem to last too long, but that may be because I walk several miles a day as part of my job. The boots took about two weeks of constant wear to finally break in, but even after that I felt that the insoles never took on the shape of my foot. Uncomfortable lumps caused pain on the bottom of my feet. Overall, you get what you pay for: these boots do a good job at protecting your feet, but at the expense of comfort.
