- A good boot with some flaws – Review by Jon, posted on 6/6/12
Quality Value PriceI've had these boots for almost 2 months now and feel like they are more or less broken in.
I got these boots for about $80, a little less than what they are now.
I wear these for my EMT job and at first, they were uncomfortable. The soles are not very good, my heel got destroyed because of the lack of padding against the heel. I wore them for about 3 weeks hoping they would break in.
Thankfully they seemed to be now. The leather feels a bit cheap, but it isn't too bad. The zipper is heavy duty and doesn't seem like it's going to break off. The composite toe does not squish my toes and has protected my feet on many occasions. The zipper allows me to not have to deal with lacing every time. Nothing has broken, gotten ripped, or fallen apart since I've had them.
I wear them 5 days a week, over 8 hours a day and have been pretty happy with them.
On the downside, the soles that came with these boots were pretty bad. Luckily, I had some older replacement soles that helped. I highly recommend spending another $30 or so on some good soles to put in these boots. Another con is that these boots can get a bit hot. On hot days, I'll have to take them off and let my feet vent a little bit. Hopefully the more they are broken in the more air they let in but I am not completely sure.
I searched everywhere looking for good boots and I decided on these. I'm not sure how long these will last, but so far they are doing pretty well. I hope that clears up questions anyone may have!

Quality Value PriceThe only complaint I have about those boots is that they're a little on the hot side. Otherwise, I love them, much more than my Magnums that lasted a little less than 1 year...! These seem to be quite durable.
- Love these boots – Review by aram, posted on 7/30/11
Quality Value PriceThese boots are very comfortable and wear great. This is my second pair, first pair lasted about 6 years, wore them every day, 5 days a week. They polish well, the safety toe is a plus. I am inb the Coast Guard, the treads hold well on slick surfaces, never had any foot odor, go on and off with ease. Very fast shipment. You can't go wrong, love these boots.
I order these boots for work and the first time I wore them they were kinda rough. but after having them on for 24 hours they feel great on the feet. They don't hurt our bays are very slick when there is water on the ground but they did not slip at all.I love them would not trade them for anything
