I bought these boots roughly a year ago on sale and within 3 months I had a hole rip through the front where my big toe is. I thought maybe this was a fluke or that maybe I did something to them walking the streets of philly and did not realize like cut them on a curb. Within 6 months the heel portion started to give away from the inside and cushion began to come out. In this last month the other shoe on my right foot now has an identical hole near the big toe.
I really liked the shoes when I first got them and I can't complain about the deal I got on them. But less than a full year and they are littered in holes. These were good beaters but are certainly not waterproof either with all of the holes that came from regular city walking.
I use this product daily for work. Needed reliable comfortable footwear for daily use as a member of a rapid response UAV team. Although not waterproof, still at great option.
I got these shoes in the heart of the "Polar Vortex" this year and they stood up well to all of the snow, ice and salt. They kept my feet warm and dry in most circumstances, they do have their limitations(they are a low shoe). Even as the seasons have changed they have continued to preform well. I use them in a every busy EMS 911system in New York and have and will recommend these to my friends and coworkers.
I have used these for 893.6 miles worth of rucking and hiking (most with a 25 lb pack on a 230 lb hiker) since September 25th 2013 (6.5 miles per day average, 7 days per week) but it is now time to replace these as they have reached the point where continued use will cause problems. Zero blisters and good fit. They are light and I've done as much as 10.5 miles in a day with them. They give excellent footing except in ice and have been worn in all fall and winter conditions.
The negative is that they wear out excessively fast on the inside section of the heel. After almost 900 miles of hiking and rucking in 4.5 months, the soles are also showing wear. Realistically, these are good for about 750 to 1,000 miles of rucking or hiking. Then it is time to retire them for use doing chores for which you would not want to wear good new shoes. If the inside heel didn't wear out, I probably could get about 1200 miles / 6 months use out of them.
there should always be free shipping. use every day once out of work and there I have 511 work boots
I use these shoes for running, hiking, rucking, training, biking, around the house, everyday wear, at work, pretty much everything.
These are the best shoes I have ever owned.
They have the comfort of a sneaker (more than that in fact) and all the advantages of a boot.
My only complaint is that they take forever to dry. Once they're wet, they'll be wet for a long time.
I wear these shoes to the gym, work, and running errands.
I have had these shoes about a week and they feel great! I don't want to call perfect too soon, but it does well for walking and running.
Other reviews warned me not to get too excited if it felt a little snug at first. I followed their advise and loosened the laces and wore them a day or two. I wouldn't say I had to break them in. I just had to loosen them up a little and they fit like a glove. I love them. Very comfortable wear!
I have just started as a courier and this shoe is great for driving and in and out of truck all day. Great traction on wet surfaces, no slips yet. I wish I had been advised there was a wide fit available. Just have to wear thin socks with these.
