TOUGH, yet weak...
on August 3, 2011
I bought these shoes for work a few months ago and i decided after some wear that it's time for a review.
First of all, the outside of these shoes are absolutely built Ford tough, i have put them through some serious beatings at work and they only have a few knicks and dings to report, nothing major, the sole has also performed great with no real wear yet after about 3 months of use.
The real negative is the inside lining, after about 3 weeks i already had multiple holes in the heel on both shoes, these holes have now spread to an alarming amount of holes all throughout the inside of the shoes on about every contact point with my foot, I am already looking for new work shoes, which is pretty embarrassing after only a few months. These shoes are also crazy hot, i have some mysterious foot rashes now popping up from these things which i never encountered from wearing the free Dickies I received from my father, don't want to go into too many details, but my feet are now always sweaty at work and i can't wait to get these things off at the end of the day.
That said, my wear is a pretty extreme case, as i walk about 11 or 12 miles a day at work, and also do alot of bending, so if you have a more mild mannered application, these things should do just fine, because they are tough as hell, just not on the inside.
3 stars for balls-out toughness, but lazy lining materials.
