Steel toe cap was twisted and hitting my big toe.
on November 16, 2014
I took the advice of other reviewers and bought one size bigger and one width wider. These are still too snug. Plus the toe cap hit my big toes. I presumed they were twisted. I twisted the caps away from my toe and now they are okay, but the shoes are snug so I won't know for a while how to rate them for long term wearing as I am wearing them around the house to stretch them out prior to wearing them for a 10 hour day on a concrete floor.
If I were to buy them again I would get them 1/2 size bigger than I did. I take a 10 and I got an 11. I would go with an 11.5 next time. I don't think they come in 4E so I'm out of luck getting them wider.
As far as the side and heal, they are good. I have low ankle bones and they do not hit my ankles. The backs do not cut into the tendon.
Looks to be well made, and all material is high quality.
11/19: been wearing them daily at work. They are still breaking in but they are working out fine. Since I twisted the toe cap my toe does not hit it any more. I bumped up my review from 4 stars to 5. They are a recommended buy.
