I have had 8 pairs of these boots. Boots are very comfortable; however, the soles do not hold up to daily work. My latest pair lasted less than 6 months. On one of my boots, the sole cracked all the way through where the sole flexes near the ball of your foot. On both boots under the ball of the foot, the rubber material wore off and holes began to appear. The rubber material on the bottom has wore off and separated from the sole in several places. If you want a comfortable boot for light work and leisure wear, these could be a good choice. If you want a true DAILY work boot, these are NOT a good choice. Timberland would have to change/improve the soles before I purchase another pair.
