Very comfortable, my feet don't hurt at the end of the day like with my heavy work boots. Plus they look street enough to be used outside of work as well. I have to take my shoes off at work when going through security and these are loose enough that I just slip them on and off without any effort.

Great style, good comfort, but not at all slip-resistant on wet surfaces. I work in a restaurant, and right out of the box these shoes are like skating on ice if the floor is even a little wet. I bought these to replace an old pair of work boots and I'm boggled by how a "slip resistant" modern shoe can be so thoroughly outperformed by Vietnam-era combat boots with zero tread left. They're comfortable and great to wear casually and when cycling, but they're an outright hazard on a wet floor.

Love these shoes, they look cool and feel comfortable, the only thing I could say if I was being picky is that they are a tiny bit uncomfortable towards the toe, but that is due from the steel toe. Overall, would buy again.

This is an awesome shoe for working considering it's a skate shoe. I find the shoes pretty comfortable to be begin with, but when you add insoles they feel even better. They're not as heavy as my old boots so that is a definite plus.

Great comfortable shoes, hard to find steel toe shoes this style. On my 2nd pair, first pair was a little large for the size I ordered so the heel wore out after 7 months. Got a half size smaller this time.

Great shoes. Could not stand wearing a steel toe boot so haven't even tried in years; just hid my plain work boots from safety checks at my job. Got these and they are very comfortable and it's like you aren't even wearing a safety shoe. Only con is they are a little slippery on wet floors.

I wear these shoes 12 hours a day 3-5 days a week. I sometimes wear them 7 days in a row. After about 6 months I still can't tell the difference between my street shoes and my work shoes.

Does not look like a steel toe shoe which is why I got them. They have also saved my feet a few times I work in a warehouse and my toes used to take a beating.

I work with dangerous solvents in a steel working factory and so far these shoes have been great! I like that they are light yet strong and so far have been well above my expectations. My only dislike is I wish they were available in more colors and didn't get dirty so fast.

I have had these shoes for about a month and they feel just like my DCs! They are so comfortable and perfect for those of us with a wide foot and you would never even know they are steel toe! I bought a half size too big and put an arch support insole in and they are like a dream. Not too long, the perfect width, and not too loose with the insole. I recommend these to all my coworkers with clunky old boots. They look and feel just like a skate shoe.

Brands I'd also recommend: DC, Etnies, Vans, Globe, Es, Element, Fallen

I'm on my feet 8-12 hours a day, mostly outdoors. These shoes are great. They feel and look like regular skate shoes. I've had them for 9 months, but they are now starting to show wear. They're not keeping my feet dry anymore. The steel toe now sometimes jabs into my foot when I walk on uneven surfaces (like going up grassy and muddy hills). All in all, it's a great shoe, but doesn't last very long if you're on your feet outdoors all day.

1 month in to owning these shoes and I love \'em! I wear them to work, which is a two floor office building that has me moving around all day, and the shoes have been extremely comfortable. My only hesitation was the steel toe, but I don\'t even notice it! Love the shoes, don\'t regret my purchase one bit.

I have now purchased several items from Zappos and they are the best! Got these Converse shoes for my son and he absolutely loves them and tells me they are THE most comfortable shoes he owns. I love Zappos and tell my friends and family all the time to shop there. One last thing, Zappos has the best Customer Service on the planet!

I purchased this shoe specifically for work. From the time I put them on until the time I took them off (12 hours later) they were comfortable the entire time. My feet never hurt and still don't. I would recommend these shoes to anyone interested in buying them.

I have worn skate shoes for quite some time now mostly because they are a comfortable style of casual shoe. This design in particular is very close to a regular skate shoe as far as comfort is concerned. The quality and design are spot on. There is a very thin layer of suede covering the steel toe portion of the shoe which could peel off if something makes good contact. If these hold together of at least a year, I will definitely buy another pair. Zappos.com upgraded my standard shipping method at no extra cost to me. I ordered these shoes in the afternoon and they arrived the next day. This website is definitely my first choice when shopping for new shoes.

I'll make this short and sweet. If your looking for the coolest looking and most comfortable steel toe skate shoe look no further. I work in a manufacturing facility and only wear them while I'm at work. The reason for only at work is that I need to make them last for 1 1/2 years or i'd be proud to sport these shoes anywhere. Thanks Converse and Zappos for the great support.

Brands I'd also recommend: If you work on your feet. No shoe has a good enough support. Just get an insert it will pay for it\'s self forsure.

A good comfortable safety shoe. I work both in a lab environment and on the shop floor, on my feet a large part of the time. I was really pleased with the comfort and light weight of the shoe. I forget I am wearing steel toe shoes most of the time.

Hubby is on feet 12 hours a day and says they are only okay (he immediately put in insoles which help). Alas they are more fashionable than anything.

My first pair of "skaters," and I really like them. Much more comfortable than I thought, and they look great. Only wish that the laces were about 2" - 3" shorter, but I guess that's part of the style.

Really a great work shoe. Extremely light and comfortable for a work boot, especially for being a true steel toe. They also look good enough to wear outside of work. I wear these with insoles but factory insole was quite comfortable. For the last couple of weeks they have held up well in an industrial environment.

I work for a manufacture and am on my feet for 8 hours a day. I had boots before these and not going back. These are light weight and look like a normal shoe un-like most steel toe shoes. They dont offer the best foot support but neither do most skate shoes. It could be my feet but think I\'ll change the inserts in them.

These shoes are very comfortable. The removable insoles in these shoes are really soft! Your feet will feel good in these shoes. I use these at work and they are great. They are part skateboard shoes so they are a little loose on the ankle. Just tie your shoes if they are too loose on the ankle. The only problem is that the suede black fades over time. Overall great shoe though.
