Wolverine DuraShock SR Boot 6"-Steel Toe EH Durable boot

Reviewer: Nathan from Southern New Jersey
Ideal soul for for working on cold hard cement and doesn't have over gripping like many outside boots. Problem is I order a narrow shoe and got only a narrow soul but with just as much leather as a regular shoe. My lacing are so close they touch and at base of tongue. There is wrinkle for trying to pull in so much leather. The easy lace clips makes it easier to tie.

Reviewer: AL from New York Metro area
While the style and quality of the upper and outsole are superior, I found the comfort not be up to par. The shoe seemed to create more pressure points in the heel -- both underfoot and in the back of heel. After as little as a half hour of wear, I would note significant pain and a general bruise-like feel in this area. With each wearing, the pain increased, thus it was not a matter of breaking them in for me. I stopped wearing the boots for several weeks, and tried them again with the same results; thus, I had to give them away. Perhaps my foot is one of the few that had this trouble, as I note that others seem to very happy with the comfort level of this boot.

It took years to get my husband to realize that you get what you pay for. He always bought cheap shoes and then complained that his feet hurt. Once I convinced him to spend the money on good boots, he chose Wolverines and could feel the difference immediately. There was no breaking in and they felt wonderful the minute he put them on. This is his third pair of these boots and will not even consider any others.

Caterpillar Second Shift Safety Comfortable

Reviewer: Steve from Hartford, CT
Boot was larger than standard size, but after an easy exchange, got the correct one. Comfortable, but some of the stitching is coming undone after minimal usage (less than a week). Typical Made in China durability... you get what you pay for. Next time I will buy an American boot that will last.
