    I've had pretty good luck with them over the years. Reasonably good balance of quality and value. Usually get about a year out of daily use out of them. The leather covering the steel toe tends to wear through after a few months but you get that with steel toe boots anyways. They aren't particularly waterproof.

    Got a new pair last month and they seem to be made a little differently. They're a lot stiffer than they used to be. It's been four weeks and they still aren't completely broken in yet.

    It might help to get the triple E size cause they seem to be wider

    Currently looking for a job in or related to scrap/recycling. Relocation is possible for the right offer.

    I need to get a pair of good work boots. I tear up shoes an boots like nobodys business. I do a lot of walking, whether work related or not.

    Might have to shell out for a decent pair of work boots. Save me from visiting the store every couple of months.
