Even at the most demanding of worksites, Baffin's Processor industrial steel-toe rubber boot has you covered. It's designed with a woman's unique foot shape in mind, and you can still count on its lightweight and flexible upper and its protective, acid- and oil-resistant UltraFlex rubber. A durable, treaded outsole will keep your footing secure. Manufactured in Canada using the highest quality materials and rubber compounds available, Baffin's rubber boots are built to take on the most extreme conditions and environments.
Twenty-five years ago Baffin Footwear began manufacturing insulated and non-insulated footwear products. While traditional molded boots are suitable for some conditions, they are not ideal for cold temperatures. Baffin combines leading molding technology with a foam-based inner boot system, which creates a hybrid style of high-performance footwear. This equates to more warmth, better fit, and superior comfort. Baffin boots are different than most shoes and work boots because the sole and midsole are molded to the base in one continuous process. The sole itself is a marvel of modern engineering because it is made up of several advanced thermo-set polymers that are combined together to achieve the right balance of warmth, protection, low weight and grip. Baffin is dedicated to offering boots with functionality and fashion, while still maintaining their legendary performance.

TL;DR: These boots bear more resemblance to a medieval torture device than a pair of work boots, and as such it would be a fitting punishment for the folks at Baffin to do my job for a day while wearing their own poorly designed boots.
As a side note, I would like to respectfully ask that people who buy workwear and only ever use it to take the dog for a walk or do light yard work refrain from reviewing it. A large number of well-intentioned but misleading positive reviews can give gear manufacturers and consumers the false impression that a product is adequately designed to withstand the wear and tear of a rugged work environment when it really isn't, or worse -- that no one ever uses it in such an environment. Over time, this inaccurate feedback leads to dangerously underdesigned gear being sold as workwear. Gear that fails in cold, wet conditions puts outdoor workers at risk of on the job injuries, cold stress, and hypothermia. Women's workwear in particular tends to be poorly made and prone to failure. Is it because gear manufacturers are sexist, or are women unwittingly perpetuating sexist stereotypes when we write glowing 5-star reviews that imply our gear only has to be good enough to take the dog for a stroll? The most laughably unhelpful reviews of all are those little gems where a husband writes: "Bought these boots for my wife and she loves them!" These reviews contain exactly zero useful information. What does your wife do in those boots? Forestry? Commercial fishing? Scurrying from the house to the car on a rainy morning when she's late for her office job? And why did she not review them herself?
TL;DR: I guess I can at least be grateful the boots aren't pink!
You will probably want soft inserts to put in these--the inside was rather bare and empty-feeling. The toe box felt nice and roomy, but the arch/mid-foot was snug--not too much for me, but it might be for some people, especially if you have wider feet. If you're not sure, order a half-size up and put in sheepskin liners and/or use Kamik polypropolene liner socks. I'm a rock-solid 7.5-8 (Euro size 39), and my feet are certainly not wide, but the insides of the boots seemed "hourglass shaped" to me, which means they were roomy in the heel and toe but snugger in the middle.
I'll check back in after a rainy spring to comment on the durability of the rubber, which was the problem with the Sorel boots--after one year of "fashion-only" use and one year of seasonal work use, the rubber split and cracked, both along the seams and wherever the boot bent or folded while I walked. I hope that doesn't happen with these.
UPDATE, 2020: So, these boots split wide open in front at about the ankle about a year ago. I only wear them from October to June, and even then, only a couple of days a week, for a few hours in the garden. That's all the longer they last? Not acceptable.
