Game changer in the outdoor winter work environment!
on January 9, 2014
I bought these for my husband who works outside in the Northeast because his feet get cold quickly and it makes doing his job much more difficult. He also suffers back pain because most work boots are not only heavy, but also do not offer enough support. We chose the Durashocks on the advice of a friend whose husband also works outside and has been wearing them for years. My husband was a little bit skeptical upon receiving the boots because although they were much more attractive than the picture represented, they didn't seem as light as he hoped they would be. After wearing them every day for the last week he has actually thanked me every single day for making this purchase. He says that they don't put the stress on his body that his previous boots did and that he can't imagine wearing anything else now. They are staying dry out in the snow and his feet are nice and warm, although he does also double layer with wool socks because he has struggled so much with cold feet in the past. I am considering buying another pair without the insulation for when the warm weather arrives.
