Footwear that rises to the ankle or higher; can be casual or dressy, practical or fashionable. Boots that are designed for protection from the elements may be made of a single, closely-stitched piece of leather, rubber, or other material to prevent the entry of water, mud or dirt. Other types of boots are sturdy in nature, intended for protection in wilderness or industrial settings. Fashionable boots for men and women may have all the variations seen in other shoe styles, including high heels, platforms, and lacings.
Mesh refers to a material that is netted and is punctured with minor openings. Mesh is typically found on athletic and casual footwear to provide comfort and breathability.

The side zip makes it easy to take off without undoing the laces and the extra wide width makes this a very comfortable boot.
Wears this shoe: Work and going out.

Reviewer: Akj83 from USA
I bought these for myself for work. As a corrections officer you need a boot that is durable but yet comfortable at the same time. I wore these for maybe 6-7 months before I had to buy a different pair of boots due to the "leather" splitting open near the toes. They were comfortable after breaking them in but after a while the back of them were digging into the back of my achilles tendon on both feet.
