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.

I had a very bad accident with multiple broken bones in my foot. Had 3 very involved surgeries. I am left unable to work. And I thought unable to walk. I ordered 18 different hiking boots thru mail order. These are the only boots/shoes that have allowed me to walk. I bought 3 pairs to rotate them & have worn them exclusively for 18 months . This pretty much says it all about support and comfort.
Wears this shoe: Every day

Reviewer: Rob from Ohio Boots are great but were a full size smaller than marker. Had to reorder twice to get correct size. I normally wear a 10.5M, 11.5M was what fits.
