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 got these because they had a thick sole and the description and reviews suggested this was a really tough shoe, it is. These things were built to go into a coal mine. However, I got them for janitorial work so they actually turned out to be way to heavy and uncomfortable for my work. Also the thick fabric didn't have a good fit at my small shoe size (but I wear a size 6.5 mens so that is a common problem).
Its really hard for me to find a Timberland Oxford I am really happy with for my job. I really want to find a pair that last but are not so heavy, but I wear through the thinner soled shoes in about half a year. This pair definitely won't break anytime soon, but they are just not as attractive or comfortable as the earthkeeper oxfords I bought.
