Not the best pair of boots out there
on December 11, 2014
These are a very stiff bottomed boot. Having worn red wings and timberland pro's I kind of knew I wasn't going to be getting anything like those by just looking at the price. The toe box was plenty roomy for my wide feet as sometimes steel toes will rub on the outside edges of my toes. I wore the boots for about a week with the factory insoles and my feet hurt. Mind you.... I'm not on my feet all day. I'm a truck driver that does my own loading and unloading. After that week I knew I needed to try something to make them better. I had had previous experience with Soul insoles with a pair of ski boots. So I purchased a pair of them here from Amazon and inserted them without any fitting. It snugged my feet in them immenselly but added the cushioning and support that I needed. This was something that in previous work boots seemed to happen as they broke in. These boots were showing no signs of that. By installing the insoles it made these boots comfortable for me. I just hope the sole lasts longer then the red wings and timberland pro's that these replaced.
One more thing. I've had these boots since September I believe and already had to replace the shoe laces. The laces from the factory fell apart and broke already. I don't think they were of good enough quality to handle the steel eyelets that these boots have.
