Verified Buyer Reviewed by kem101 from Oregon on Wednesday, September 13, 2017The boots appear to be very well made and are comfortable are a short break in period.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by STP Fan from Pocono Mts, PA on Thursday, July 20, 2017These are really well made boots, but I advise ordering up 1/2 size (I could fit my nominal size, but only with very thin socks). The composite toe looks and feels more like hard rubber than plastic, which was a plus. The leather is quite thick, and should be protective. Same for the extra shaft height. That makes them a little stiff for walking, however the design of the shaft back allows some flexing, which should increase with more break in; and I don't use the top lace holes, to overcome that extra height. The heel height on the logger styles will also take some getting used to. Is like wearing western boots, rather than normal work or hiking boots. Still feels very stable though. Just have to deal with the unusual feel of the extra height and extra stiffness, until lessen with more break-in. The sole insert feel perhaps a bit too full under the arch, but since it is a stiff foam, I think that will flatten a little in time. Still rated them a 5, with the caveat of being almost 1/2 size smaller than stated.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Wildjuan from Northern California on Sunday, July 16, 2017These boots were listed as seconds. Upon visual inspection, I couldn't find anything wrong with them. The very first time I was lacing them up however, I was pulling kind of hard on the laces as the boots are quite stiff. Bam! One of the eye hooks flew off like a bullet. It could have hurt someone or something but fortunately didn't. Almost returned them but due to the value, decided to take them to my local shoe repair. Got it fixed for $5.00 and he checked all of the rest of the lacing hooks. Would have given 5 stars otherwise.
