I bought the boots to primarily cut the grass in order to prevent verdant socks when cutting in sneakers. Even though I may look like a pud, I am content in knowing that it is a simple affair to slip into the boots, bring Honda-mulching doom to the new lawn growth and easily blast away all the carnage with the garden hose. My gladiator footwear is primed for battle the following week, looking fine.

The boots aren't terribly heavy, somewhat true to size. Of course, they are spacious on the inside--I suspect that they may have birthed some baby boots at some point in time. They do stand at attention on their own in the garage. Wearing pants and having them fit inside the boots is a non-affair, although I must admit that below the knee, I am a bit svelte. They come with a light-weight insole which can easily be switched for something more comfortable if you plan on long shopping treks or a rigorous night of dirty dancing at the local country club, much to the chagrin of the stuffy older folk and parents of one long-wore-out-nicknamed young adult known as Baby.

Yes, they do indeed smell like a petroleum-based refined product, although I do fancily hope that my boots were made from the resultant hydrocarbons of peak oil--simply for elitist reasons.

For roughly $20, I have rarely bought such value, especially considering the cost of some of the alternatives.

"Stalking, walking in my big black boots" be the lyric that loops in my head when I rock these boots. Chyeah!

In England, you can get a pair of rubber "Wellington" boots for low cost. Just try to find something like that in the States, and you can wind up spending $80 if you aren't careful.

I just received a pair of these boots. They are rubber, which I wanted to keep my feet dry in the puddle of winter rain, and most important, they were less than $20! (a few more bucks including shipping)

Highly recommended.

Update: Five years later these boots look just like they did the day I bought them. They've been very durable, and still work great to keep my feet dry in the puddles.

The boots are excellent! I think they run a little small. Fortunately, though, I do not need to exchange them. For the price, I doubt anyone can do better!

It fits 1/2 size bigger. It is seems to be good quality. The time will tell how long it will last. The good thing about the boot is that for who feels like the boot is too tall, you can cut it easily at the line and it will take off about two inches. The price is good and it is made in U.S.A!!!

Worked well enough. I work in an extremely greasy environment, so finding boots that let me grip the ground was a life saver. I would recommend these boots to anyone working in a slippery environment.

Before I opened the box these came in, I thought they had sent me a crate engine! it was so heavy, lo and behold they were these boots that I had ordered, I could not believe these were only $12 and some change, heavy, strong, cleated like a tractor tire! and will last for years, and when I am finished with them, I'll recycle them at the local tire, and they can make a set of tires out of them! best $12 plus I ever spent!

These boots are amazing, especially when you consider the price.
Are they a little heavy, I suppose, but for the level of protection it's worth it!

I wore these almost all SUMMER long to do everything from mowing the lawn (riding mower), to digging trenches, to weed whacking and even a little bit of slogging through mud.

They are very comfortable. They seem to run a little bit large. I wear an Adidas size 11 and these boots are by no means snug. But I'm ok with that because I generally wear socks with the boots (occasionally slip them on to run outside for a minute) and the extra space means plenty of room for winter socks and/or boot liners.

I did not find them to be especially smelly. Maybe for a day, but I never felt like I had to put them outside to air out.

The kick-off lugs are great. The tread is deep and releases mud readily. The rubber is really thick, which is probably why they weigh so much, but also why they give such good protection. They are lined with a thin knit material. The insole is comfortable and removable. I will post some photos to show some of these details.

When I put these boots on to do yard work I feel pretty much impervious to anything below the knee. Sticks, prickly things, snakes, mud, sharp rocks, rats, stuff the weed whacker kicks up... bring it on. The rubber is firm, yet pliable, and did I mention how thick? After wearing these for a while I often feel that my feet are very vulnerable in anything else.

Despite being black and rubber they don't get too hot. Now, if you leave these on the back porch in the sun and then put them on it will feel like a little foot sauna, but even then the heat rises and dissipates well out the top of the boot. No, the top of the boot does not hug your calf like a pair of wellies, but you'll also find that your feet are not swimming in a pool of their own sweat.

Probably the only thing I wouldn't do in these boots is drive a car. They'd just get in the way, but driving the lawn tractor is fine. Oh, I probably also would not go swimming in them.

If you need to get work done outside, or anywhere that's going to get messy, these are great boots for the job.

just got these last week, haven't used them much, but they came as advertised. They run big, so I would suggest 1/2 to a full size smaller than you usually wear. But hey, for 13 bucks you can't go wrong.

Well this boot is great it is really high 16" I am a size 10 1/2 and ordered the 11 and am glad I did. Now they work great for a man with long legs however a short woman. My wife could not get them on just was way to tight around the calf and knee. We got them so everyone could use them . My woulger daughter can use them they are big on her but protects just the same. She is 10 yo. I will order a smaller leanth like an 10 inches or less for the wife. But at this price and the mock steal toe has proven its worth kicking cut logs into place. I did that with a non steel toe boot and hurt all my toes. Also were I live we just shot a 7 foor rattle snake with 16 rattles. And it was around 30 or more lbs. So I now use them around the yard then doing brush as I feel a snake could not bite into the boot and hit skin. So at this price you have nothing to loos. Oh and they are desighned to releace mud with just a few stomps and all muck is gone. I will keep you posted on hop they hold up.
