This review is from: Wolverine Men's Steel Toe Raider Boot (Shoes)
I'm a U.P.S. Delivery driver and I'm constantly going through shoes. I normally buy black walking shoes as it is required that we wear brown or black polishable footwear. I've been wearing the walking shoes for about 6 years because when I started the job I tried to wear work boots ,which UPS encourages for safety reasons, but my feet just weren't having it. I easily wear out the walking shoes in 2 1/2 to 3 months. Walking shoes were always cheaper in price and always comfortable but as I've got a little older I have become increasingly more concerned with protecting my feet with a sturdier shoe without sacrificing comfort. I think I have found it in these wolverine raiders. I have a wide foot and was able to order the correct size and width here on Amazon and cheaper than at retail stores I looked it. When I received them they looked great and because of the good reviews I was eager to try them on. Because of my previous problems with work boots hurting my feet and sometimes even giving me blisters I was afraid to take them straight out into the field, as depending on the route we can walk anywhere from 3 1/2 to 5 1/2 miles a day. So for a few days I wore them around the house and to run errands and was pleasantly surprised to find that my feet felt great from the first day. No pain. No blisters. No rubbing. But the true test would be working in them. The first day I wore them to work I took my old shoes just in case the boots would begin to get uncomfortable ,but I never had to use them. These boots worked out great from the first day and I enjoy the added ankle protection and ability to polish them up so they look good as we'll. I took extra steps to cushion them though because going from walking shoes that have cushions of air in the soles to work boots that have a firm rubber sole left my feet slightly achy after a couple days but with a good insole and recommendations from older driver to double-sock it the achy feeling went away. I'll post and update later on their longevity because if I can get 5 months out of them that would be great.
