First Steel Toed Love - Had a pair of these for 2 years now. They feel like the day I got them, just great. Have held up just fine, but steel toe's are starting to show, time for a new pair! Buy 'em!

Buy It! I really like this boot. I have really flat feet and this shoe is really easy on them. Did seem to run about 1/2 size too large. (I got the wide one)

They are a great work shoe! The soles should be a little more low profile. My ankles are a little weak from sprains in my life and they do turn at times on rough terrain. I must lace them tight to have better ankle support. Probably best on smooth surfaces.

Love this boots, this would be the 2nd Caterpillar boots I've own. Really comfortable, lightweight and easy to walk with. Wore em' to work as soon as I received it (12hours of long work) didn't feel like a new boot that needs to be broken in. Great product!

Recomended! Have only worn these around the house so far. Feel more comfortable and easier to walk in than the other pair of Cat boots I bought. Definately have the "hiker" feel to them rather than "big heavy work boot" feel. I take 1 size smaller in work boots by rule so I ordered accordingly. Cannot be beat for this price.

The only problem with these is that the steel toe digs into the base of my toes. Other than that they were very comfortable.

from Hubbard, Ohio

Soft top, hard bottom - This is a great looking, great fitting shoe. The first 3 or 4 days they felt great, then my feet started to hurt. The top leather part of the shoe is soft and supple. The sole on the other hand is very hard making 9 hour shifts not so much fun. I think the sole will last a long, long time but if they had made it softer this would be the perfect shoe. If you buy this shoe and are on your feet a lot buy the best, softest insert you can find.

Wish They Had My Size, But Still Works For Me - My one disappointment with this shoe is that in my size, it only came in "wide." I never order wide, as my foot is thin, and "regular" always fits perfectly. I ordered anyway because I needed a pair of steel-toes and like CATs. They are just a little loose as wides, but I wear them every day and if Zappos ever gets them in my size and not wide, I may get them again. I've only had them for about two weeks now, but so far they're holding up great. I mark them as "true to width" because I figure they are what wides feel like, as again, I have no personal experience buying wides for myself.

These are a soft leather boot with lots of room in the steel toe. My main concern was to have a safety boot that is easy to walk in and these are it. They have a rounded heel and rocker sole for easy walking. Great for my many trips around the job site.

Jt

from San Francisco, California

Sole wore out in 4 months - These are by far the most comfortable work boot I have ever had! But I can't afford to buy new work boots every 4 or 5 months. I bought the brown ones to switch off with the black ones I purchased 4 months ago and am glad that I noticed the bottoms worn out on the black ones before I wore the other (brown) ones to work! Think I might have to return these!! So sad too cause like I said they are by far the most comfy work shoes I have ever had. I am standing on ladders for at least 4-5 hours a day and standing the other 2-3 hours and my feet have never hurt once.

These boots look well made, time will tell. They definitely run larger than the size marked. The sole is pretty hard. I put in an insole and made a tremendous difference. They are easy to walk in and get on and off. If you plan to put in a support type insole , order your normal size, if not you better order at least half a size smaller

I have worn this boot 12 hours a night, 5 times a week for almost 1 year and really like the way it feels and looks. It did take a few days to fit to my feet but other than that I could not be happier. I now find myself wearing them outside of work because of their looks and feel.

I bought these shoes to wear in a shop environment. I wore them on and off a bit the week before I needed to wear them everyday. Once I went to the shop for an installation, I wore them for 9 days at least 12 hrs or more a day. These shoes are great. They were very comfortable. The only issue I had was with lace bite because I had pulled the laces too tight but I corrected that by loosing the laces a bit. I recommend these steel toe shoes.

Bought this because of good reviews. Loved them at first sight. 3rd time I wore them I discovered entire length of shoe on inside left detached from the spanking new sole. Examining other side of same shoe I can see same thing about to happen. Other shoe looks solid, will probably re-order. Factory lemon. Stuff happens. Automatic glue gun probably ran dry. Seem like great boots otherwise.

I work on different mines in Peru, and travel a lot to the mine sites. These boots are so comfortable that i wear them even on the plane. With close to 25 years on the industry/mining, I've tried different models/brands of boots and these are my favorites.

I like the boots SKU#7165852 that I purchased, however the right foot stiching does not match the left foot and affects my pronation? I would like to have the boots right foot repaired or replaced with proper stiching of the laces?

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.

This was my first experience buying a steel toed boot. They seamed stiff when I first tried them on but they are pretty comfortable now after wearing them a few times. They have very rugged and durable soles and seem to be very high quality.
