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: Deborah from Beaver Dam, WI
I have a safety shoe truck that comes to my place of imployment that would never have the size of work boot that I needed. My husband suggested I check out shoebuy.com to see if they had the particular boot I liked. Yes! There were the Wolverines, in my size and a much needed wide width! Very comfortable from day one! Very impressed with how light weight these steel toed boots are! Very happy with how attractive they are!

Rockport Works RK6200 Unable to return

Reviewer: Kathy from Maryland
Quality made work boot, but thick stitching attaching tongue to the boot wore the skin off husband's foot in one day. Shoebuy would allow return because he had worn them. Shoebuy claims that isn't a defect, so we wasted a lot of money to try a pair of work shoes.
