Wolverine DuraShock SR Boot 8"-Steel Toe EH Best boots ever!

Reviewer: Georgia speaking for Gene who works as an electrician from Alamogordo, NM
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.

Reviewer: notlinkingthisshoe from florida
If you wear a 14 in nike or new balance, order a 15 in wolverine. they are much smaller than advertised. my feet are killing me and I cannot afford to buy anymore for the next couple of months. I tried to return these, but couldn't because I had worn them to work. How else was I supposed to know.
Wears this shoe: to work, one time, for about 9 hours.

Reviewer: Berthene from Jackson, Mississippi
I don't like to give bad reviews. The shoe fits to size but does not last long. We have had to purchase 3 pair in the less than a year. The only time they are worn is to work. I called customer service and reported this. They are too expensive to have to replace so often. We are looking for another brand.
Wears this shoe: To work. My work is in a freezer.
