    Hands down the best work boots on the market! Break in time is minimal. I am a union boilermaker and spend a lot of time on my feet on various surfaces with little to no foot fatigue! I hope they hold up as well as my Wellington wedge soles did! If so they will be the best work boots I’ve had to date.

    they took a long 4 months to finally break in, toe leather wore out 2 months later.

    I’m still getting these boots broken in, but they have been fairly comfortable so far. They appear to be holding up strong. They are easy to clean. The only thing that would have made me happier with my purchase was to be able to purchase a style that had a hard heel with a softer insole. That style has been discontinued and was no longer available in my size. I think the softer insole would have been more comfortable for my legs.

    This is my second pair of oil rig Wellington’s. The first pair I have abused for three years and I’m wearing them still. Steel toe is rubbing through, tread is getting thin, but still comfortable. My old beat up Thorogood boots are far superior to any new boot made in China. I just got the new boots so I can look good for the ladies.
