Built to last...
This is a great boot, and one of the most comfortable I've ever used.
I've worn these every day for some time now and they're still in great condition. Since the leather is a little softer than some other boots they get the initial scuffs and peel on the top layer a little quicker than others, but it also makes them more flexible/comfortable, and after the initial scratching they are just as tough. I think back to the first agonizing month of breaking in any other pair of leather boots where my feet ended up covered with blisters and can deal with a scuff or two, and since then they're still fully functional and tough as ever. Even the soles are still in excellent condition, and I drag my feet.
I work in file storage having to constantly move flatbeds, hand trucks and pallets loaded with upwards of 30 10-25lb boxes at a time, and I wont trust a loaded pallet to land on my foot in any other boot. I'm buying a second pair today because even though the pair I have will probably last another couple of years, the last good boot I found was discontinued and I don't want to run the risk of losing these too.
As for comfort, I have ankles with "bad structure," a coalition in both (pice of bone joining ankle bones instead of cartilage), plantar fasciitis, and just have all around bad feet (if I listed everything it would sound like I was making stuff up), and putting these on for the first time felt like walking on clouds. Only thing comparable is a pair of well broken in Doc Martens.
- good waterproofing
- steel toes are bad for snow, but with extra toe room these aren't too bad (no contact with the steel, and extra room for second/thicker socks)
- hooks let me leave them tied
- excellent slip resistance
- comfortable ankle support
Only Con is that they're heavy, but so is every other steel toe leather boot.

good deal, nice boots...
I owned this boot for 2 years, and they were great. I bought them more for winter time in connecticut. good price , comfortable. I used to work in a car wash and, they protect me really good with the water and cold ( snow). also they have a good grip and very looking boots. Hope this help for people like me.
