Rated 5 out of 5 by Best boot I've ever worn! I've tried many different boots over the years and usually more than one pair per year, sometimes 3 or 4 pair a year. These boots are the best I've ever owned. Light weight, comfortable, perfect fit, well made, durable, still waterproof. Haven't even had to replace the laces yet and I wear these boots every day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Great boot, especially for wide feet This is a great lightweight boot with a large toe box and wide fit. My only 2 concerns are that the grommets often come loose, and very regularly develop a sharp edge that cuts laces. This has been a problem within a few months for several pairs I have owned. However, I will say that my latest pair have not done that. This is the only pair of these that I have owned that has not had a problem with the grommets. Also, the wear resistant layer of the soles wears through to the inner foam layer quicker than I would like, but I assume this is a trade-off for the weight savings. August 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice and wide work boots. Got this pair late 2015. I had them dyed black and plasti-dipped on the toes. I had to go back once for a second dye coating but they've been perfect since. So far they've made me happy at work with no back pain. In fact I have back pain walking around my house without them and when i put these on to go to work the pain goes away. I recommend this pair to anyone with SUPER wide feet (as mine are) and back pain cause they're good for both. July 8, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Great fit until. The boots are great. Nice and wide in the toe and lite. Unfortunately, the heal is very hard because of the rubber sole extending up the back of the boot. I got a pressure sore on my heal because of the boot design. Luckily, I went back to the store and exchanged them before my 30 days were up. If you have wide feet and issues with protective toes these are the boots for you. March 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Comfort and Protection I work on drilling rigs and these are by far the best lace up boots I have worn. Very light and Very Comfortable. I recommend these boots to every new hand on my rig and people looking to upgrade. Also has very good grip on the board. October 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Another great boot I used to wear the 2244, but switched to the 2280 because my feet got too hot in the warm weather. These boots are just as good, but way better in warmer weather. They keep my feet comfortable all year round and the waterproofing has been excellent. The leather will absorb some water but it never touches my feet and dries quickly. These keep my feet more level than the 2270 pecos that I have (A great boot also, but pitched too far forward for my all day walking). I do a lot of walking on metal stairs and concrete all day and the soles are barely worn. The insoles are a bit soft/squishy for my taste so I replace them with the Redbed insoles. It makes for a great combination for me. These boots offer me great protection and all day comfort no matter what I am doing. I highly recommend them. Make sure to get your feet properly measured at your dealer. September 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Offshore Great boot, has handled saltwater well, although as occasional coat of mink oil helps keep the leather moist. I've actually had the boots submerged briefly in water over waist deep, and held up well against allowing water intrusion when properly laced. Recommended for offshore work. August 8, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Like to rate the 2280 higher, however I really like 2280 Electrical Hazard boot, however was disappointed with the insoles that they came with them. The insole fabric began to delaminate from the insole cushsion within two days wear. Otherwise, the boots seem fine thus far; I'm only in to my second week with them. They were generally comfortable from day one. Not as comfortable as the Wolverine 3124 I wore for years until Wolverine discontinued them, and certainly not more comfortable than the Converse then Reebok EH boots I tried; but stil comfortable. For now I've tried some non-acetone spray glue to tack back down the fabric on the insoles. I imagine I'll have to look fo some aftermarket insoles though. Maybe I'll try the Wolverine Durashock insoles in them. July 14, 2014
