Right out of the box, I have to say, I'm liking these boots very much. Their construction feels very solid. I wear a size 8, and they feel true to size. They're very comfortable, stylish, and you can't beat the price! Now Caterpillar's got me looking at their other boots. Haha. Gonna need a pair in black! :)

Wow, these boots rock. First of all like a fool I ordered a pair from another online store 1 month before my European trip...only to find out 2 days before my flight they were sold out, Stinkers! So Zappos to the rescue, they arrived next day. Thus I had no chance to break them in. However, they were so comfortable that wearing them daily for 10 days was a breeze. Stylish, and with good support they not only handled the London fog and puddles no problem, but sat well for afternoon Tea. Well made as Caterpillar always is, these were true to size and get 2 thumbs up from me.

Solid, comfortable, and good looking. Decided to branch out from my usual boot in an effort to find something that balanced looks, durability, and (most importantly) comfort--Caterpillar's Abe TX nailed it! I found the break-in period to only last about a day and before I knew it these boots were a perfect fit. The wood-sole adds a bit of noise when walking, but nothing out of the ordinary for a boot of this size/weight. All in all, I've received countless compliments on these boots as well as enjoyed wearing them in the workshop everyday....Money well spent!

Beautiful boots, you need these. I will say, as a former boot salesman, size down a little. Even though they'e lace-ups, if you break the leather in patiently they will fit you like no other.

I found the tow box of these boots to be narrower than others of a similar style that I own and wear frequently. This is disappointing since they are not available in a wider width.

These were my favorite boots that I ever had. I love the style so much. However, I have them for about a year and only wear them occasionally and the sole is falling apart. I am convinced that either you have to spend big money to get quality or workmanship in this society has tanked so bad that this is the norm no matter how much you spend. Sorry for the negative review but I am being completely honest.

These boots have a great look, no doubt. However, I ordered a 9 at first, as I wear a size 9 when it comes to tennis-shoes and a 9D for cowboy boots. They were large by a half size so I exchanged for an 8.5. The 8.5 fit. I noticed, after looking closely, that the canvas seemed to be painted/dyed and it was flaking off at the edges. Also, the seam (inward) next to the eyelets was "busted out" and basically not a seam for that 1" or so. The seam at the inside of the tongue, above the arch of the foot, also kind of hurt the tops of my feet. I may have just received a pair from a bad batch. I'll just say that I am extremely picky when it comes to boots, and these didn't give me the same feeling I'd anticipated when I purchased them. If you aren't so concerned about these little things, these boots definitely have a great look and a quality leather. If you are feeling unsure about ordering these boots after considering doing so, I'm sorry. I am merely giving feedback based on the one pair I had that did fit. If you would like a good Caterpillar boot fairly similar in style though, the Caterpillar Morrison is something I would recommend.
