These boots are EXACTLY what I wanted
on December 20, 2009
First of all this criteria needed to be met for my Fire Cadet program(Kind of like an apprenticeship for fire fighting)
1.) Needed to be about 8"
2.) Needed to be polishable
3.) Needed to look professional
4.) Needed Side Zippers
5.) Be comfortable for 13 hour shifts
And these boots easily met all of these criteria. I've been using them for about 3 months and I expect to keep using them for 6 more. I did put some Dr. Scholls in them because they are absolutely amazing, and now they're even more comfortable than my sneakers.
1.) Look incredibly sharp and professional.
2.) Zipper has been working great so far.
3.) Incredibly comfortable and provides great support.
4.) Very durable.
5.) Very light.
1.) Made in China, but, I haven't had any problems with that. (I'd rather it be $90-$100 than $180)
2.) Although the sole is "oil resistant" and has worked well so far I would have preferred a Vibram one.
In conclusion, if you're in need of a black boot and you don't feel like spending $150+ on a pair get these. To avoid getting a "lemon" buy it from a retail store and check it out before you buy. I also suggest buying some Dr. Scholls for work boots, they are a God Send. Great buy, highly highly recommended. 9.6/10
