Possibly 1.5 sizes too large for me but I went with one full size (11 instead of 12). Easily the most comfortable safety shoe I’ve ever had. These are so good I’ve already given other pairs from Keen and Timberland away. Very comfortable cushioning, nice styling on the exterior. The flexible fabric makes it easy to put on and take off.

It's NOT a lightweight shoe. Durability i can't say because my job has grease for floors and with this sneakers i felt like i was ice skating. No stability but in non greasy floors it is a great shoe. Plenty of feet room to be relaxed. I did order this shoe wide so that i can get more relaxed feel.

Quick background on who I am and why I purchased these; I'm a union HVAC mechanic, so I'm used to having to work in a variety of indoor and outdoor environments, as well as working off of ladders, working in snow or mud, and generally climbing all over equipment for servicing. I now work in a more defined role that allows for more liberal footwear choices than the token 8" leather work boot, so long as they are safety-rated for work sites. I was very specific in what I was looking for, and in most areas, these do fit the bill. As an avid backpacker and trail runner, I have been wearing zero drop shoes for a while now, and was looking for as minimalist of a work shoe/boot as I could find, as this would really be the final touch in getting my feet and body used to zero drop, minimalist footwear, since I'm on my feet at work for 8 hours plus, daily. I'm not sure what the actual drop is in mm, but the expensive Red Wing boots I'd grown accustomed to working in were like high heels compared to my hiking and running shoes. Despite minimalist footwear being very popular a few years ago, it has declined in recent years, and for whatever reason, never really made its way into the work shoe world, only running and hiking. There just aren't many options out there for steel-toe zero drop shoes. These are nice and flat from heel-to-toe, and the toe box has some nice room to it for toe splay, depending on the width of one's foot. I have slightly narrow feet, but if I was wide-footed, I would definitely get the "E" width for some nice toe room. They do seem to run a half-size larger, but I still would order the same size to ensure that extra width in the toe box. They are heavier than one would think, likely due to the heavy-duty EH sole and the steel toe. While certainly not as light, flexible, or ground-sensitive as a true minamalist shoe, after much research, these are as close as you're going to get to minimalist in the safety shoe market. I do have durability concerns; when I first pulled mine out of the box, the left shoe already had a broken lacing loop on the tongue. The right on was not broken, but I was unimpressed with the sturdiness of material and thread job used on the tongue loop. I contemplated exchanging them for new ones, but figured it wasn't a big enough issue to deal with the hassle. They've proven durable otherwise so far in various indoor/outdoor work sites, are nice and comfortable, and have nice grip on ladders and slab. They have a skater-shoe look to them, which is fine, but they look like shoes, so if you're looking for something that can pass as a boot in work pants, look elsewhere. If you're in the market for a zero drop safety shoe, then this is as good as anything available.

My feet felt very hot in these boots and powder only helped a little. Right boot had a bump in the bottom which put pressure on the ball of my foot. Painful walking for more than a few minutes. I tried a padded insole but no help. Also. Right boot had a "ridge" or seam at the toe area that rubbed against my toes sometimes causing a blister and bleeding. Very irritable. My feet were always sore in these boots. Never had any issues like this with any shoes I've ever worn. See attached picture. You can see where my big toe is and the lump just to the right of the impression from the toe. You can also see the seam at the front of the shoe which was digging into my toe. Yes I have the correct size shoe.

Purchased this shoe for my teenage daughter starting her first job where she'll be on her feet on a concrete floor for 8 hour stretches. She loves how comfortable the shoe is - but its a work shoe and styled as such; she won't be wearing it around town or to school! We also read reviews that the shoe ran small - we experienced this as well. She's a pretty solid size 7 and we had to bump up to a 7-1/2.

Shoes fit and the insoles felt nice and cushioned. The only problem is that you could feel a bump under the big toe and that felt really uncomfortable so I returned them.

Fit great, feels great . Coming from wearing steal toe work boots these are one heck of an improvement. The softer outsole and insole have done wonders on my feet even after work. I'm a machine operator in a factory which consists of standing on my feet for 13+ hours a day . I used to be in constant pain after work barely able to walk across the hard wood floor at home. Now I barely notice the sore feet after long days. I would say these shoes are great for anyone looking for something comfortable for long days on your feet.

My feet are happy - my ankles, not so much. These boots have almost broken me in with the break-in area being in the ankles. I work in corrections and I am on concrete floors all day. These boots seem to be the answer. Time will tell.

shoes are great, but only problem i have is they're very slippery when wet floors are wet

These shoes were terrible for a “non-slip” shoe. I was sliding all around the kitchen I work in. It was dangerous. They would be fine if you didn’t need them to be non-slip.

These are comfortable right out of the box. I don’t have to wear steel toed shoes very often but I’ve worn them for 2 plant visits so far. They are a little heavy, but that’s to be expected. Great purchase!

Great shoes for my flat feet. I have had flat feet all my life. Any shoe with arch support causes crippling cramps in the middle of my feet. As such, I always look for shoes with little to no arch support. These shoes are perfect for my feet. They are super flat inside. Very comfortable with the gel insole that while padded, is also flat. I tried the size 12 width E at first but found that the tops of my toes were chaffing on the top of the shoe. I returned them and got the size thirteen in E width. They have turned out to be a perfect fit.

Great work boot!
Zappos Reviewer on October 02, 2018
A lot of extra room in the toes for my taste, but maybe that’s because the steel toe gives you extra room? They were comfortable all day nevertheless.
Zappos Reviewer on October 02, 2018
we ordered one half size larger (12 vs 11.5) and that worked very well. Satisfactory shoe.

This boot fits very well I normally take a narrow size but this is actually better. Gives me more room inside the boot. Supports my ankles very well. Highly recommend this boot. I love it so much I'm buying another pair.
Harold from Ivor, VA. on September 26, 2018
Normally I have to get one size smaller in most work sneakers I get but these ones fit completely true to size. I have some low top chuck Taylor look a likes by timberland and these reeboks are way lighter which is surprising since they're mid tops. I gave 4 star on comfort only because on long work days when I'm required to walk almost all day it "seems" like these insoles aren't going to be enough. The insole is extremely soft and gel like but it just seems like they need to be a little thicker to hold up to the work of 12 hour work days. (We will see)

I wish I had trusted my gut when the shoes arrived and I first tried them on. I was really excited for these shoes though, so I wanted to give them a shot. I was looking for a good work shoe to use at the golf course where I work. I didn't really need a steel toe, but I figured it couldn't hurt. Too bad the steel toe is what ruined it for me. The shoe fits great and is very comfortable, but the steel toe only covers 3.5 of my toes. I was hoping breaking it in a bit would help the situation, so I wore them for a day and a half before deciding it just wasn't going to work. On a normal day I walk at least 10mi before lunch, so my toes jamming into the edge of the steel all day isn't an option. So here I am looking again a few days later since I can't return the shoe now. I will say, the shoe did a great job with everything I was looking for. It kept my feet dry, sand out, and had good grip. I just can't wear them.

These are instantly comfortable. I have never worn steel toe before but these are not too heavy or clunky feeling. Perfect for working on my feet all day.
Abby on September 10, 2018
only thing wrong with shoe to me is there's no cushion. if the padding/cushion that's in certain areas of the shoe was in the whole sole they would've been perfect. the shoe is light weight. feels like a sock and is breatheable. MORE CUSHION ZAPPOS

A very comfortable, safe, and incredibly light work shoe. Switched from some Keen steel toe boots to these and my feet have never been happier.
Zappos Reviewer on September 08, 2018
The toe was the wrong shape. I had plenty of room for my big toe, but it was digging into my others. I have big feet and almost always have to get a men’s. I am exchanging for the men’s size hope that they will fit better. No arch support but very squishy insole. They do feel like I’m walking up hill.
