Rated 5 out of 5 by BazzBoots Most comfy work boot
My husband is 100% satisfied with this boot. It has improved on comfort since the last pair purchased. Having a big toe missing on one foot makes it hard to find a workboot that is a comfortble fit and also light enough to wear all day for him. Wether working in Cattle/Sheep Yards or building in the workshop, long hours on your feet, these boots are excellent and will normally last a good year before having to be replaced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RamblinCarl Comfortable and snug fit, yet easy to take on and off
I'm very pleased with these boots. First, I usually use orthopedic inserts to make walking more comfortable, so initially I was concerned because the fit of these boots (I take a size 12) was *just* right, meaning I couldn't use the inserts. However, the soles are well-cushioned, so I haven't missed my usual inserts at all. Furthermore, there's just enough play that I can wiggle my toes, yet they are snug enough that I haven't had to worry about chafing on the back of my heel.
Second, I live in Japan, which among other things means having to get in and out of your shoes all the time when entering houses or going to certain restaurants. Consequently, I'm always on the look out for shoes without laces. The elastic on these boots makes them quite easy to put on and pull off.
Finally, I just like the way they look! Casual but not too casual. The brown is a little darker than I thought they would be from the photo on the website, but I'm not complaining because I bought them thinking I would darken them up a bit with mink oil and such anyway. Incidentally, we've been getting a lot of rain recently, but my feet are nice and dry. I've worn them every day since getting them (two weeks prior to writing this review) and very, very satisfied with my purchase.
