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.

Awesome shoes! Wearing them right now in fact. Steel toe is awesome, but they don't look like big work boots.

I am on me feet eight hours a day and when I get home my feet feel great. The shoe is every thing I expected. They are comfortable for anyone who is on their feet for any length of time.

Shoes were very comfortable at first, but quickly began to deteriorate. After three months I had to throw these shoes away and go back to a bulky boot. Do not by any means waste your money on these shoes. I deliver food via tractor trailer and comfortable shoes are a must. These shoes started out looking promising, but quickly went down in flames.

I have had these shoes well over a year and I feel they still have a bit of life left in them. I wear them every day while on the job working aircraft maintenance. They've seen plenty of grease, oil and solvent, and have managed to hold up nicely. I find them to be almost just as comfortable as my regular street shoes and feel that they are on par with most other work books and shoes I've had in the past when it comes to features like non-slip, steel-toe, etc. The only bad thing I can say is I wish I would have gone with the black instead of blue because the white souls turned brown fairly quick due to the nature of the job. I will be buying a black pair when my current pair wears out completely.

The design of the shoe leaves something to be desired. The white insides show through at the ankle for a less desirable look. The steel toes can be felt by the wearer rubbing up against their toe. But the worst is durability. The thread going through the side of the sole, attaching the shoe to the sole, has already come undone within a couple weeks of wear.

Looks great, none of my coworkers believed they were steel toed. Pretty comfortable, but did not last long at all! Sad for price! Liner started to wear out and worst of all, they stink! My feet have never stunk, and these are terrible!

My 12 year old son frequently wore these shoes when I first bought them for him . He actually wears them for scootering. He does not wear them much anymore though. I am not sure why he does not. Perhaps it is the steel toe.

Great comfy shoes, no one can believe they are built for work. It's a shame to get em dirty on the job! Little on the heavy side and definitely get them a half size smaller than your usual sneaker but still awesome!

Very comfortable and stylish. Only complaint is that the sole should've been gum colored rather then beige because they get very dirty in a warehouse. Overall they are great this is my second pair.

I needed a steel toe for customer site visits. Something that could walk me around most worksites yet I could still make an executive presentation. This shoe has been a good choice to meet those needs. Slight heaviness due to steel toe but comfortable to wear all day. Made a business trip and wore these shoes the entire time. Runs 1/2 size large though!

I have found these to be everything as advertised. They are very comfortable and fit true to size. I was surprised by the weight of the shoes but that is to be expected with the steel toe.

The sizing on these shoes is completely off. I do not recommend buying them online. I had to return twice and still don't really like the overall fit.

This is all work. I thought it would be a regular skate shoe just with a hard toe. I was wrong - it's a shoe that is tough. I used Red Wings for 15 years and got tired of the high price and claims they would outlast all other shoes. I could buy 2 shoes for the price of one Red Wing and not look like an old man. I wear a 13 in sneakers and a 12 in a boots, these I would need a 11.5.

Brands I'd also recommend: buy a half size smaller.

Love the shoe! I'm not your typical cookie cutter work leader and I like to set myself apart from the herd. I'm getting ready to replace my converse with the same model that I bought 14 months ago. I'm on my feet 7hrs a day everyday as a mechanic. They are comfortable lightweight and stylin! It took about a week to get that comfort of a "broke in" feel. The heel area inside is wore through but the outside is in great shape.

These are the best work shoes I've ever had! I bought these to replace a set of Skechers work shoes that were worn out after 2 years. I have specific needs for work shoes. Must be black, non-skid, electrical safety rated, and steel or composite toe shoes. Unfortunately until now, comfort has always taken a back seat. These feel and look just like skate shoes. They feel like they are half the weight of the Skechers, which is great on my dogs. I've had them for a month, and I should get a commission. I've sold at least 3 pairs to coworkers, and they all love them too.

Bought this for my husband who is super picky about shoes. He wanted a steel toe shoe that wasn't a boot. He loves these. Said that they do pinch a little in the toe (due to it being steel toe) but he wears them constantly so I know he likes them.

Do yourself a favor and get the high tops instead. These shoes are awful. First off, they are not even a little bit slip resistant! If anything, I would call them slip persistent. I've had these for about 3 weeks, and they haven't gotten any better. Second, they are def. a 1/2 size too big. And third, they have no support whatsoever. Buy these if you like ice skating (with ice skates that are too big and generally uncomfortable).

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.

Awesome shoe. I work as a mechanic and can't stand work boots. I've been wearing skate shoes my whole life and these fit my needs for comfort and "safety". My boss has been hounding me for a couple years that I need work boots. When he saw me take a sledge hammer to my toe he was quite pleased. We'll see how well they hold up but for the price if I have to buy 2 pair a year I'll be happy.

These are casual shoes. I did not know that Converse make steel toe shoe. Buy ½ an inch smaller than your shoe size.
