I work for UPS and spend between 5-8 hours per day on my feet. I have worn theee boots every day for 6 months and find them to be one of the most comfortable work shoes I've ever owned. I've worn these in rain puddles and even snow and my feet have stayed dry. In the snow my feet did get cold, but they didn't get wet even though I was walking through snow that covered my toes all day long. I used these boots briefly working on a package car, but most use has come from working in the hub. They are not steel toed, but they do provide decent protection if you drop something that isn't too heavy on your foot.
I bought these boots as an entry level police officer. I was hoping for a comfortable work boot. It was less than a month and I realized these boots were awful!
I am a gal who loves my heels and I can honestly say and I would pick my heels any day over these boots.
I have NEVER had another pair of shoes/boots that were as awful as these.
A product has to be fantastic or horrible for me to write a review. These boots are fantastic.
I use these boots everyday for work. I'm on my feet between 10-16 hours a day and the boots are still comfortable at the end of a long shift. I highly recommend them to anyone working in EMS, they're also great duty boots for the fire station. They're comfortable and not super heavy, and break in nicely.
I POLICE ON BIKE AND DO A LOT OF WALKING IN THESE BOOTS. THEY WILL LAST 4-6 MONTHS. I REPLACE THE INSOLES ONCE BEFORE I AM DONE WITH THEM. USE A GOOD SOCK. YOUR FIRST LINE OF COMFORT IS YOUR SOCK. LOOK NICE AND ARE DURABLE. I LOVE 511.
I work Security for a local casino, and this is my 2nd pair of 511. I must say, that I love the boots, and would recommend them. With that being said, I don't think from this point on I will. I am very upset. I had my first pair for about a year and a half, then the cloth that is located at the back of the heel, tore away, leaving the hard plastic piece that runs up the back of the boot exposed causing extreme pain. I thought well "their older time for anew pair". I bought a pair in Feb of this year 2013 and it is July, and guess what, BOTH boots are doing it this time. They are causing blisters, no fun. So the only reason I gave this such low stars is due to the fact that this is 2nd pair that have done the same thing. Sadly I will not be buying them again. Sorry 511.
