5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent dress/walking shoe, May 1, 2013
This review is from: Timberland Men's Mt. Washington City Chelsea Boot (Apparel)
This boot fits my needs very well:
1. Must be dressy enough for work - looks good with slacks.
2. Must be relaxed enough for casual day wear - looks good with jeans.
3. Must be able to walk LONG distances without foot stress - I'm in my 50s and can walk several miles from work to home without calluses or discomfort.
4. Must age well so that it stays presentable for work through out its life.

I've worked for several California corporations and have never had anyone look askance at my footwear, but I have had coworkers complement the shoes and ask for brand name when they hear how much walking I do in them.

Other "comfortable" dress shoes either aren't formal enough (they look orthopedic), or they damage my feet if used for walking (either too heavy or improper sole for walking), or they don't age well (soles wear out, leather tears, etc).

I wear the Chelsea 2 to 3 times a week, walking 5+ miles every day. A quick polish every month or so is the only maintenance. Each pair has lasted 3 years or better under this regimen. (I replace shoes when they are not presentable, which is well before they break.)

However, true walking/dress boots is a recent trend. There are several competitors that have sprung up in the last 5 years and I have not tried those due to my contentment with this brand, so I might be missing out on an even better design out there.
