Thank you for your feedback.
I have a pair of the Rocky C4T boots which I use for training (by far better than Nikes Running boot) and love them.
The performance 1950 was discontinued, so I found this pair for a similar price and similar design Vibram sole.
For my money they are the best most comfortable boot on the market.

    my husband ordered these after suffering through wearing magnums at work who was walking and standing on hard floors all night. the magnums left blisters and were cheaply made we ordered this boots in a size 10.5 w and we thought they would be to wide but they wear perfect no rubbing on the little toes they have a lot of paddling and was so comfortable i will be purchasing another pair for him for the price we paid for these boots and the magnums i was shocked at how better made these were you can just tell by looking at these that they are better made..

    My husband loves this type of boot to work in but we have been unable to find the boot in local stores any longer so I was pretty happy to find this one. He works in engineering at a manufacturing plant and is on his feet a good bit. The boot is comfortable and supportive and shines up really pretty.

    When I first put these on I thought they were sized too small but I wore them around the house and in about 15 minutes my feet settled in and they fit true to size. One of the side zippers gave me some trouble but a couple of drops of oil fixed that. I have yet to wear them in extreme cold but I expect they will be up to the challenge. They go on and come off easy and are light weight and comfortable.

    Since my initial review I have worn these in snow & rain and bitter cold. As I expected these boots function very well. They hold a shine too.

    Being that i have arthritis in both my feet, it is hard to find a boot, that i can get on espically a waterproof boot. the side zip makes it easier for me, and with less pain. I have worn " ROCKY BOOTS" for many years. they are virtually waterproof, and have awsome grip on slick surfaces. Thanks amazon. And at a great price

    My husband was so excited over these boots. He even tried to wear them to work a couple days to see if he could make it work. His poor feet were so red on the sides on the bottoms. He has wide feet his tennis shoes are a 2E & with some of the reviews saying they are true to size we thought it would be ok since the 2E is the widest the offer. But they are not true to size width wise that is. They were great with length he had plenty of toe room, but when he put them on & stood up you could see his foot hanging over both sides of the shoe. They did great w/ waterproff & sd if it wasn't for the width he would never take them off. He said the souls were really comfortable and good support just to tight on his feet. So if you have wide feet these won't be good for you.

    I used Rocky boots for work down in S. Florida for years in law enforcement as my duty shoes. There were extremely comfortable, light weight and wore well, (usually got about a year out of them) and that was wearing them all the time, both for regular shifts and a TON of off duty work, which required me to be on my feet constantly. Wore the high boots for comfort and support and LOVED them. I'd say "it was a boot that felt like I was wearing slippers".

    Wearing them for some 60-70+ hours a week obviously I needed a great boot and Rocky's were the ones most used.

    Loved the side zippers as well since lacing them up all the time in other boots was a royal PITA....

    UPDATE:

    OK...boots arrived in 2 days...so that was fast...

    Boot appears to be tight and will require breaking in, but fit to my size, so don't expect to be able to wear these boots right out of the box. Break them in for a while before wearing them for extended period of time. But quality is very good.

    Zipper is tight, but using a bit of lube on it (I used some gun lube I had handy) and the zipper loosen right up.

    Had to re-lace them up to adjust properly.

    Also these boots tend to fit on the bit snug side. But that could be because they are new as well as they seem to be a bit stiff as well.

    All in all they are a very good boot at a very good price here on Amazon.
    Now back then, Rocky boots were more or less a one or 2 style boot, but it appears they've expanded their lines with more products, but hopefully the quality is still there.
    I'll update these boots once I get them.

    I ordered the same size I order in any other brand of boot, and found these to be kind of narrow for a "wide" boot. I ordered the wide version and was worried they may be too wide, since I generally wear a medium, and a wide in only a few brands. I found the opposite. They seem narrower than the Medium Rockport boots I prefer, and also the Magnum boots I used to buy. I do like that they come with a nice shine on the toes already, and that they are supposed to be waterproof. They are slightly heavier than Rockport boots, but no heavier than Magnum boots. The Rocky boots seem better made than Magnum boots, or any of the budget brands I've ordered and returned after finding they were not well made. The zippers are sturdy and stay zipped up, even though there is no little flap to prevent the zipper from moving. The laces are heavy-duty, and the rubber soles are rugged feeling, with good traction. I've been wearing them for a week, and they seem to be breaking in somewhat, but they still feel a bit tight. I'll search for an extra wide version if I buy Rocky boots again.
