This was one of three pairs of shoes I purchased at the same time. The others were a workout shoe (The New Balance Men's MX20 Minimus Training Shoe at amazon.com/New-Balance-MX20-Minimus-Training/dp/B00DOEQRA6/) and a work shoe (The Timberland PRO Men's 61009 Mudsill Low Steel Toe Oxford,Blue/Blue at http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000XF2OKQ). I bought each in 14 Wide (this is sometimes called "2E"). The Oxford was for the office, the Minimus for working out, and the work shoe was for a sturdy sneaker and walking shoe.
These shoes are far more comfortable than the office shoe I had before and had plenty of room for a Dr. Scholl's insert for more padding. I like them very much but, like many dress shoes, they scuff easily — on the brake pedal of the car, for instance. Still a good shine and some TLC should keep them nice enough for some time.
They aren't a "dress" shoe, per se, but more of a standard office shoe that you can wear with just about any kind of khaki, twill, or dress slacks.
I feel that these would be a fantastic shoe. I wore these shoes for a day and did nothing but walking to make sure they would be broken in for the work week. The moment I put on I could feel a sort of "pressure" on my upper heel from the stitching and thought they just need to stretch a little. The next day I put on and took a step off a curb the stitching that is causing this pressure ended up just taking a jumbo amount of skin off my heel. Very painful.
As mentioned, this is the 2nd pair of these that I've purchased. The first pair was bought from a mobile safety shoe truck that came to my work. Price was nearly 30% more than what I paid here at Amazon.
I have a normal width foot, but I buy my safety shoes in wide. This gives me more wiggle room in the toe. It's just more comfortable for me.
My first pair of these lasted 6 years, worn for 10-14h a day... 5 days a week. Sure they were looking a little rough toward the end there... but that's a heck of a run for a pair of shoes. When it came time to replace, it was a no brainer to get the same shoe again. Even found them in black... I'll be ordering a pair of these soon.
The composite toe is very light when compared to traditional steel. The sole is simple, but provides good traction in most conditions. Laces are adequate.... lasted the full 6y in the old pair. For me they require little to no break in time.... i wont say they are instantly comfortable out of the box... but close. I have them on my feet now, day 4 since new.... and they already feel like part of the family.
Buy with confidence... these are great work safety shoes.
Timberland has missed the boat in their Pro line. This was the 4th of 5 pair o bought and returned. The first pair were too tight at a whole size larger and had been worn before they were sent to me. The last pair I bought were pinching in the ankles and left me hobbling to my car for my old shoes. Unfortunately they got chemicals in them or in would send them back, too!
Was looking for a shoe which was comparable to the Red Wing 6633 King Toe. I have a hard to fit foot and the Red Wing was the only shoe that was comfortable to be in all day. Found these and I'm very happy with them and will buy another pair when they wear out. Break in time was quicker, but this is due to the leather not being as thick. The sole, while it seems it's durable, is not as nice as on the Red Wing. Not worried, seems like these things will do just fine. So happy I found a replacement.
The first pair we received was fine until about 3 weeks in. Then one side of the right shoe started to come apart from the sole. We exchanged it for another pair, which my husband starting wearing this week. So far, so good. The shoes are really comfortable and have relieved much of the back pain he was getting with his old boots. He is on his feet all day, so these shoes are very important
I've been wearing these for work on our small farm over the past 2 years. They are extremely comfortable. The laces are garbage, and started breaking within maybe 6 months; not a big deal. I'm guessing I've probably worn these about 100 times, and I'm a bit disappointed that the leather is already tearing and starting to peel off at the toes for both shoes. Maybe this is a care/use issue on my end, but I've not had this problem in the past with boots, which tend to last me about 5 years before needing replacement.
From moderate wear, the lining and padding at the heel wore completely out and left plastic sticking out. And you know what that means: my heels are torn up and I have to hobble around. I was really hoping to get more mileage out of these for the price. The rest of the shoe has held up well and it hurts to have to throw out something that seems to have so much life left, but there's no way to make those worn out heels work anymore.
This will be the second pair I've owned. They fit a little tight out of the box, but from past experience they don't over-stretch. EXTREMELY comfortable shoes. I work in a factory with concrete floors, and these are fantastically optimized for support and cushion. Slip resistance is ok... I had a pair of Sears Die Hard non-slips years ago that stuck like glue. The last pair I owned were my favorite shoes, at work or home. The sole split all the way and across however. Very disappointed but were nearly four years old.
