You get what you pay for

I was looking for some black, weatherproof, slip-on work boots. These Timberlands looked to fit the bill and were especially attractive at a price of only $85. I usually wear a size 10, but found that the 9.5 fit better in the length. However, the boots were too loose in the ankles so I sent them back for a refund. In addition, I was disappointed by the rubbery and cheap appearance of the leather. So, I ended up buying some Blundstones for $200 and the fit, feel, and appearance are fantastic.
Work boots for $85 seems like a really good deal. Keep in mind, however, that there is often a good reason why there is a big difference in price between similar products. If these Timberlands happen to fit your feet and ankles and you don't mind the cheaper leather and structure, then I think this is a good option. Otherwise, I suggest spending a little more and getting something that will likely work and look a little better.
