Thank you for your feedback.
Now, however, I'm pleased to say they're comfortable, true-to-size, and warm enough for dog walking.
He had a pair for work that were handed down to him and he loved them ,he wore the sole til there were holes in them.
This new pair was just like my first pair, fit well, and I am looking forward to wearing them out!

    Size: 12 D(M) USColor: Black
    In nearly 26 years of auto repair I have never had a work boot last longer than 6 months. Not even the much ballyhooed Red Wing. In 4 - 6 months its always been time to pony up for another pair of work boots - til now. From 7 a.m. till 11 p.m., Monday - Friday these boots have been on my feet. Now, 12 months later, the soles are finally near smooth. I still have another 2 months left in them at this rate but for the price, why wait? This is the very best work shoe EVER!! And my back pain has never returned since wearing them. Another bonus!

    Size: 11 D(M) USColor: Dark Brown Verified Purchase
    This boot is what my feet slip into right after I get out of bed and what they'll stay in until I head to bed at the end of the day. I noticed some bad reviews here concerning improper fit and foot soreness in its forms, and I think these people had unpleasant experiences with these boots either because a) they didn't get the right size or width, or b) were wearing them too tight or too loose. What I did when I first got the boot was slip it on, loop the laces around all guides and strap them up on the lower set of lace hooks, leaving the top set vacant. That way the tongue becomes loose enough to tuck my jeans behind but more importantly it allows me to just slip the boot on without having to untie and tie the laces. I've found this position to be very comfortable, snug enough to prevent any slippage, loose enough for comfort and ventilation. I've walked a considerable distance in them and stood still in ques and such for quite a while and I have to say nothing comes close to the comfort of these boots. Worth noting is that they will need some breaking-in, as the first 2 or so days of wearing them I did in fact feel some discomfort around the top of my feet and posterior but the boots quickly take to the shape of your foot and before you know it they'll be the most comfortable thing you've worn. I was first going to purchase Timberlands but after seeing their sky-high price I knew there had to be something else in the market that provided equal --and in some areas better-- stats for a much lower price. Boy was I right! CAT all the way. I'm a very satisfied customer

    This is my second pair of CAT Second shift boots.
    I wore the first pair out after years of abuse.
    They are comfortable from day one, look great and last.

    Like others have commented - my Cat boots are 1/2 size smaller than what I usually wear - meaning I bought an 11 1/2 and usually wear a 12. Good thing I tried a pair on in a store first, or I'd have been swimming in 12s. They were, as expected with new boots, pretty darn stiff the first week of wearing them. I thought they broke in surprisingly fast, only 2 or 3 days of chafing at the ankle tops, and now they bend well. I did not do any of my usual crazy boot-break-in tricks, just wore them to work. Big thumbs-up from me.

    I work at UPS as a part-time preloader. I'm on my feet for four hours and so I needed a work shoe that was both durable and comfortable. These boots provide just that and hold up to taking a beating. I feel these boots offer some ventilation because my feet aren't soaked by the time I get home. The non-slip soles provide excellent firm footing, and although they are soft toe, they hold up to a 110lb package dropped from waist height. In short, these boots make everyday work a cake walk.

    They were comfortable and lightweight. They are not steel toe. The fit was true to size and the color was a nice brown.

    I have owned Caterpillar shoes in the past and was very happy with them, these on the other hand have done nothing but give me terrible pain in my feet. The foot bed in these shoes compresses and feels like your walking on concrete barefoot.I would not recommend buying these if you spend any time on your feet.

    Size: 7.5 D(M) USColor: Black Verified Purchase
    I bought 2 pairs of these work boots for my dad, and after only 2 days of wearing them, he realized that the stitching didn't go all the way through the 2 layers of leather, which left him with an opening on the side of the boots. He's been wearing Caterpillar boots to work for the past 20 years, and has never had a problem with them. This was his first time trying the 2nd Shift, as the boots that he used to wear were recently discontinued. Although Caterpillar makes great boots, I wouldn't recommend buying these, since my dad only got 2 days of use out of them, and because this pair is worn, there's nothing that can be done.
