These Boots Retire All The Others (with 2015 update at bottom)
on March 29, 2014
I had never worn Timberland boots before these and they are the most comfortable fit I've found in any price range (and I've had them all). They provide some much needed support in the ankle area especially and are remarkably easy on the foot after 12 hour days standing outside doing cable installation and fiber optic installation work. I'm a construction supervisor for a local cable company and I get a real work out both indoors and outdoors seven days a week (2 days on call - and they call - believe me). So far (two weeks) I'm very happy with them. I can't speak to longevity yet nor can I speak to how they'll do when winter comes knocking here in Colorado, but they've done fine on the tail end of it and they are waterproof because I've spent a couple of days in standing water already and come home dry. For me the sizing was true to range (10-D). They're light (remarkably so) but seem very well constructed and I like the slip resistant soles and heel that put you up higher than most boots in this price range. Overall so far I'd recommend them without hesitation and if that changes I'll come back and update this review and lower the stars.
Update April 1, 2015:
A year later and these boots are my go to work boots. They have worn exceptionally well with a little wear on the front sole and a couple of scuffs where I've dropped heavy objects to the front, other than that, they have certainly already outworn every other pair of work boots I've had in the past. Looks like I'll get at least another year of use out of them before I have to check again. I bought another pair of them and put them in storage because I don't want to come back in two or three years and find them gone!! That's how much I like them.
I'll be back in a year to tell you more...Lord Willing And The Crick Don't Rise...
