Rockport Works

Rockport Works Logo
We're often told to "think on our feet," but rarely about them. At Rockport® Works, they do both. They scrutinize every line and nuance of their shoes, from first sketch to final product. They are dedicated to more than mere aesthetics, and their commitment goes far beyond their drive to innovate. Rockport Works spend countless hours poring over every detail of their work shoes and boots, because ultimately, it's not about the brand, or the footwear. It's about the consumer.

Rockport Works is the first brand to apply athletic-shoe science in casual and dress footwear, having the unique opportunity with adidas® to integrate adiPRENE® by adidas technology into their collections. They use premium materials that are tailored for an active lifestyle, and uses innovative engineering that responds to the foot’s natural movements.

Over the years, they have walked side by side with the people who wear their shoes, getting to know them, their hopes, dreams, and needs, inside and out. They know that no two people, or strides, are alike. No two days are ever the same. There will never be one solution for everyone. Others might balk at this reality, but Rockport Works is galvanized by it, driven to create and discover what more they can do. Thoughtfulness will always trump trends, and generosity of spirit will always outweigh the bottom line. Life is an incredible, rich journey filled with adventures and people to share them with.

Luckily, Rockport Works has got just the shoes for the road ahead.

I wore it for a couple days. Didn't realize it would pinch the ankles. I'm on my feet in a warehouse for 12+ hours a day, so I need something that'll be comfortable whether i'm walking fast, climbing stairs or standing in place.

I'm replacing a pair of these boots I purchased on January 20th of 2019 and its March 1, 2019. After such a short period of time my feet and ankles just ache constantly while wearing them. Don't know if I got a bad pair of boots or they are just bad in general. Wish I kept the box, the pair coming I will. I'm guessing Rockport found a way to make them cheaper and that's what they did.

Like the reviews say, it is on the larger side. Recommend ordering a half size smaller shoe size. I fitted mine with Dr Scholls gel supports so that took up the space. Other than that all is good.

Shoes are very comfortable right out of the box. I work a 10 hour shift walking on concrete all day. Time will tell how durable they will be.Happy with my purchase so far.

So disappointed! I bought these shoes for work in a restaurant. I was happy about the non-stop and style but after 1 shift I was limping so badly my feet hurt for days! First, I wasn't aware of the steel toe which crushes my toes when I kneel. Also with a steel toe there is no hope of breaking them in. Instead they will break you. Next, the heel is so low they don't fit securely and, as a rest, rub endlessly until you have a nice blister. The material seems if quality and it's a tough shoe, tougher than me apparently, but a tragic waste of hard earned money. After 1 shift of wearing them I can't return them. So I'm stuck with $100 torture devices.

I really liked this shoe. Cute design, but I didn't need the work / protection feature. Decided to try them anyway, but the protection feature takes up room and made the shoe too small for me width-wise. Hoping to find something similar in my size.

First of all, I didn't pay enough attention to the description. These are steel toed shoes, so they are heavy and there's no give above my toes. I have major foot problems and need very soft, flexible, light weight shoes. However, for the right person, these would be wonderful.

Heavy type work shoes, not necessarily for day to day. I didn't like them but I expected more of a boat shoe and these just don't qualify! I returned them.

Not at all what they claim to be. Supposed to have a slip-resistant sole, but I'm sliding all over the place, on many different surfaces, including walking on a wet sidewalk; they're supposed to be waterproof, but my feet are damp. Also, raised blisters on my right foot Zappos was great, though - let me return the boots even though I'd worn them several times. Thanks!

I work in an industrial/office setting. These shoes are perfect for boardroom meetings while still protecting my toes when I'm walking around the plant. I really like that the steel toe portion is not as clunky as other brands, so they don't look out of place while wearing khakis/dress pants. They are pretty comfortable and get the job done well.

Zappos has the best purchase and return policy by far. I received these shoes in only 4 days. However, they felt markedly less comfortable than my current Rockport Dressports shoes due to the addition of the steel toe. I'm not sure they would be comfortable all day walking the factory floor. Probably good for a foreman that has to go from office to floor on an periodic basis. I returned them using Zappos awesome return policy. Now I'm shopping for no kidding Dressports like I have from 5 years ago. Hard to find.

The sole has arbitrarily placed softer spots than other places, supposedly to make it more comfortable, but it makes one of them excruciating to wear for any length of time. It’s just an extremely poor design of the sole. And I guess one boot was make out of spec.

Ordered half size smaller since reviews indicated they came large. They are at least a full size larger than my regular fit. Well made!

I only wore these shoes in the house on carpet and hardwood floors for a few hours to determine if I wanted to keep them. They were very comfortable and well made. But I returned them because of the difficulty I had lacing the top 2 eyelets--they were not hook eyelets and the shoe strings had to threaded through the eyelets. That was difficult and time consuming for me. I would have definitely kept these work shoes if the eyelet had been hooks like most work shoes.

Great looking shoe for a steel toe! My husband said “finally I don’t feel like I’m wearing clown shoes!” He’s on the executive team for the packaging industry. So while he doesn’t work on equipment, he’s out on the plant floors requiring steel toe shoes. He can go from meetings, to the plant floor with ease.

These work shoes feel as comfortable as bedroom slippers. Plenty of room; soft leather, substantial soles; really comfortable.

Love them so much I bought a pair in April and again in August.. Really didn't need a replacement, but I work 60 hours a week and they are just so comfy!!! My old boots were specialized for work and didn't cut it.. The Rockport boots are worth the money.. Very safe. Very nice to wear

Only tried the shoe on and immediately took it off. Too narrow and clunkier then I expected it to me.
