So the pictures show that this shoe has a smooth leather finish. When I received it the finish was more like the pimples on a football. I was extremely disappointed. The shoe seems to be of good construction but run large by about a half size. I would get a smaller size but I absolutely hate the pimpled finish and prefer a smooth finish. If there's that option, I would love to know.
I wanted to like these but I can't. They look 5 years old after wearing them for a few days. After 2 weeks the rubber has started to peel back from the leather by the toe. They are very heavy. I work in retail and walk almost all day long. At the end of the day it feels like you're walking with bricks on your feet. They do absorb a lot of the impact when walking on concrete. Other than that, not a huge fan.
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 am the general maintenance guy for a nursing center. I work 40hours weeks with a nice variety of sitting, standing, kneeling, and lying down to work under equipment. These shoes are comfortable and look good with jeans or carhartts. (I was hoping they would look good with Carhartt Shorts but my girlfriend quickly informed me they were not acceptable with shorts.
Purchased "Timberland PRO Men's Titan" for $107.74 on August 30, 2012
Within 3 months the toes were destroyed from when i was kneeling to work on something, I purchased some Gorilla brand Toe protectors to glue on and hide where the steel toes were easily visible. This solved my problem and i was quickly back to whistling while i work.
Less than 2 months later (Writing this review 6 months after purchase. The sole of my left shoe is completly split along the arch. If i step in a puddle or even walk in medium rain my socks get wet.
I ended up switching back to my "Hi-Tec Men's Altitude" boots which are cheaper and older. But still have far more life left than these do.
Purchased "Hi-Tec Men's Altitude" for $82.7 on March 17, 2011
Overall if you dont kneel or lie down on the floor for your job, or you want some slick looking boots to wear very seldomly, These are for you. If you want something that will last. Look elsewhere.
I had a pair of these safety shoes for 6 years wearing them ~30-40% of working days. The original pair were comfortable so I bought a replacement pair of the exact same shoes with exactly the same size (12). I wore them around the house for a couple of hours and things were fine. The first trip to a customer site wearing them longerand I noticed my left big toe had some numbness at the end of the day. I wore them some more for full days and experienced a lot of numbness on my left toes. I don't know if I can keep wearing them.
I was extremely disappointed that I could order the same shoes at the same size and they don't fit the same. I missed the 30 day return guarantee as I didn't wear them to a work site right away.
Shoes themselves were good, comfortable at first but lost a little once I broke them in. However the soles of these shoes are garbage. Three months after I bought them the soles split on both shoes, they became horribly uncomfortable, and living in Minnesota I walk in a lot of snow so my feet were constantly soaked. Usually any shoes/boots I buy last me at least a year or more but I had to replace these after only four months. Do not recommend.
Tight in the toe side to side even though I buy larger than my size. Very little cushion inside the toe. Problem is there are no real options out there for wide toe shoes. Was hoping these would fit........
