As a woman buying mens shoes, because there are more and better options, these are my favorite. I have to have steel toe. They are little heavy if you walk a lot. Good for your butt though. I have had mine for 2 years. Time for some new ones - smelly. Haven't broke a shoelace once - you're pulling too tight. Love them.

Not too impressed. Made in China, and feels that way. Stopped wearing them when the leather on the right toe peeled back significantly. Also, the toe box was too narrow for my toes.

I used to buy Redwings because my father always wore them. My wife got me a pair of roll top boots for casual wear w/my jeans and they fit so well I decided I would try the Pros. I bought these for my latest job because of the protection and comfort they offered my feet over a ten hour shift.

My husband works 12 hour shifts in a factor. He has to have a boot that is oil resistant and steel toe. He has to buy shoes every three months because they will not last in the hydraulic grease he has to work in plus they are uncomfortable after about 5 hours. These Timberlands are a God send! They are built to last and he says his feet don’t throb after 12 hours. Finally a boot that works!

I am a 53 year old former concrete block hauler. Hauled block for over 20 years. I am now the block yard supervisor. I load trucks with a forklift and I have to lift heavy blocks when customers need certain amounts of block for their order. I am talking lots of 30 to 75 pound concrete blocks moved by hand. Foot protection and comfort is a must as I am on my feet a lot. I have always had trouble finding a comfortable shoe of any kind because of bad feet, I always order two sizes too large. Even tennis shoes can rub my feet the wrong way. These boots, without question, are the most comfortable shoe I have ever owned, almost want to wear them all the time. They are heavy, but I have gotten use to that. I was putting an order together and a 35 pound concrete block fell onto my foot when I was wearing my old steel toe boots, and the block missed the steel toe part of the boot and mashed my little toe pretty good. So I bought the Met Guard Steel Toe for more protection. Three weeks later the same type of 35 pound block fell onto my foot and it felt like an insect bumping into my foot. These boots are excellent. I still ordered two sizes larger but that is only because of my bad feet. The only fault is that the boot laces are wimpy and wearing out after only two months. As far as long term wear and tear on the boots, I do not know yet. But I am sure I will order another pair when these wear out.

The best! Great price for your buy. I’ve been through lots of boots for work and this by far has been the most comfortable and don’t really have to be broken in. The only bad thing about these shoes is that when you get on your knees, it’s hard to bend your toes because of the met guard...I’m on my feet all day 10-12 hrs a day and these shoes stand up for you...comfort is #1 let these shoes do the job!

I purchased these work boots six weeks ago and wear them every day to work. I am a welder and these boots have been fantastic from the first time that I put them on. They fit perfectly and were instantly comfortable. The first day that I wore them for work I took my other pair of boots for back up to change into for when my feet might start to hurt as new shoes usually do. I never needed to use them. They were comfortable all day long. I don't think that I can run as fast with them on but, they have definitely protected my feet from falling metal. I highly recommend them for protection and comfort.

Strong comfortable work boot. My husband is a welder and has a hard time finding a good work boot. He loves this boot for its comfort and durability. He will probably order it again depending on how long it lasts.

Good Heavy Boot - Good protection. Heavy to wear, but I was expecting that. Rubs a little around the collar, so a heavy pair of socks is a must. I purchased these as protection while cutting trees. They do the job!

These boots are great for working - Very sturdy, slip-proof (we work with oils, so they have to be). Without looking too much like a “workman's” boot - you can clean them up and wear them out if you want.

Nice work boots - I was a Red Wing customer for the past 20 years. But the last time I tried to shop there I asked the sales person why the price $50.00 more in just two years , and all I got for an answer was they had more expensive cows! I walked out& never going back. My wife then told me about Zappos and what a great way to shop for shoes. So I ordered a pair of Timberland PRO'S 6"met guard steel toe boots The process was very easy and the price was right. I thought they might look a little "clunky". But when I wore them to work everybody was asking me where I got them! I've been a ship fitter for the 28 years and wore out allot of boots in that time, and these boots feel comfortable since day one I also feel a lot safer with the metatarsal guards .I only wish I'd had them 15 years ago when I smashed my left foot, I would not feel the pain that I do now. These boots are the best Thank you. I'm passing the word to all.

Great boot - It felt like the additional protection was going to make the boot too stiff, but they broke in the first day I wore them. I work for the railroad and work/walk on ballast rock all day long. This boot felt great.

BEST BOOTS I EVER BOUGHT! I bought this pair of boots because I needed steel toe footwear and I thought it might be good to protect the rest of my foot as well. They were perfect right out of the box, no blisters or sore spots. I wear a ladies size 8 so I ordered a size 7 (men’s) as it is the smallest this boot comes in and they fit like they were made for me. I drive a tractor trailer but have to do a lot of unloading and stuff falls all the time, I feel confident these boots will protect my feet.

Great shoes! Great buy! Quality protective wear! Quickly catches people's attention... Three of my peers have each purchased a pair after seeing them. Timberland produces quality foot wear and only Zappos distributes these unique styles, no where else!

I was so excited to get these. I was really disappointed in how bulky, clunky, and cumbersome they are. Great for a job where you need foot protection...but never crouch. If you dropped something on the floor and went to pick it up, you'd probably roll up on your tippy toes cause this boot flexes at the ankle for no man!
