To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
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.
I bought a pair of the soft toes over 4.5 years ago and they were the best work shoe I have ever owned. Comfortable, tough, soft soles...really perfect. Something has changed it seems; the Safety Toe shoes seem to be small (Even though I ordered a wide) and the soles were really hard. I wore them for five or six days and shipped them back to Timberland. (They have a thirty day comfort guarantee policy. If you wear them and they are uncomfortable, you return them and they refund what you spent. Although it cost $18 to send them back via USPS) Maybe the soft toes are fine...the safety toes were awful.
Timberland PRO has been my favorite work shoe/boot brand for some years now and I was looking for a traditional Oxford style steel toed work shoe for my field-service based Electronics business. This is an awesome product with rugged stitched panels in the right places to avoid "popping out" over time from my flat feet spreading out.
If I only needed one shoe this would have been a great product since one fit great and was very comfortable, unfortunately the other shoe seemed to have an obstruction in the toe under the steel toe. As a result the shoes are getting returned.
I have a pair of these that I bought a year ago and have worn 6 days a week about 10 hours a day or more. The insole wore out on the ball of my foot, but still usable. The heel has been solid despite others complaints. The low top is great for business casual if you're an engineer in a process setting. The titan toe is light and saved my foot without any damage to the toe cap. I would recommend trying them on if you can at a store first. I needed a wide shoe instead of a medium for this model.
I am required to wear steel-toe shoes, but have wide feet with a high arch which means that many steel-toe shoes and boots are very uncomfortable. These are very comfortable and hold up to my 10 hour workdays doing deliveries in all kinds of weather (including snow). I have also owned a brown pair and except for the color, they are exactly the same. I definitely recommend these shoes. This is my third pair and I plan to continue buying them.
