5.0 out of 5 stars Very, very nice boots., July 19, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Timberland PRO Men's Hyperion Waterproof Work Boot (Shoes)
My first pair of Timberland boots is initially very impressive. I might write a long-term review later but first impressions are that the boots are well-thought out with lots of good features. Material quality seems very high. Fit and construction seem very good.

I consider myself very very hard on footwear and was looking for a heavy-duty workboot with a shank and footplate to prevent nail punctures during carpentry, or protect against cactus and sharp rocks when hiking in west Texas. Where Timberland convinced me to to try their product is that this boot is also rated as a hiker, with climbing rubber on the toes, and an athletic last. So if Timberland can make a comfortable, high-speed hiking and adventure boot, tough enough to stand up to concrete/carpentry/welding work etc, then its a winner.

Sizing is very good for my needs. As a runner, my feet are narrow and most workboots are too large in the arch and too narrow in the toebox, especially if they are safety-toes. Since the material quality is so high on these it will take some time to break them in but first impression is that they will remain comfortable for a long time. If my feet were bigger(fatter) there would be plenty of room. If they were skinnier adding an extra insole would keep the fit perfect.

These are NOT steel-toe or safety-toe. They do however have 3 layers of material on the toe-caps. The feel is that the toes are well protected without the pinching of steel-toes.

Final first impression- the picture shows the boots with red laces; Timberland also includes black laces. I've never bought a pair of shoes that came with spare laces. Simple details like that impress me so I would recommend Timberland in your search.

One more suggestion- Timberland should sell these, and other similar boots, in more athletic and outdoor stores. This appears to be a very good product with a perfect price. The value is definitely there and is an opportunity to compete with Wolverine and other work-hikers.
