Not What I Paid For, But Probably OK For Some
on April 5, 2010
These shoes aren't garbage, but for the steep price I'm not impressed.Yes, they are beautiful on the outside, but that's really all they have going for them.
I found them impossible to break in as the sole is almost made of solid plastic, or at least seems to be. At the factory I work at people track grease and coolant across the floor from their shoes, and these shoes have literally no traction due to their stiff soles, so when I hit a patch of grease or coolant there is no hope of the shoes saving me. Even just a little patch of water causes me to slip.
Another thing is the annoying open sided metal clips at the top to loop the laces around. These seem senseless due to the fact that these are shoes, not boots.
I paid in excess of 80 dollars for these shoes and wore them for a week before reverting to my Brahma's that I paid about 30 dollars for.
I'm sure these shoes would be ok for someone who works in one spot all day and really only needs them purely for the fact that they have steel toes, but for anyone who's going to put their steel toes to the test, these aren't for you. Don't be fooled by their appearance.
