Rated 4 out of 5 by wvmtnguy If I have had more comfortable steel toe boots, I do not remember them These boots are worth every penny I paid for them, but I did not feel that way when I left the store. It took about a week of 12-16 hour days, after a short break-in period and I was hooked. I have come to expect swollen and painful feet after 10-12 hours and just rolled with it for many years.Necessity required I have a certain boot with certain features and the result of time pressure, store stock and initial fit left me with the model 4433. I did have to buy the premium othotic insole to make up for a little looseness but again, the comfort was incredible.I am semi-retired now and even when I am not working these boots are on my feet. They are easily the most comfortable footwear I own with one exception. Since the exception can not be found these days I will leave it at that. I am already planning a purchase of my second pair for Sundays.Now the cons: These boots seem overly susceptible to cuts. I have small roughly circular places about 3-5 mm in diameter where the leather has been sliced and peeled up. I almost failed a safety inspection on the boots until a closer look revealed the toe cap was not visible. I am a Project Manager now and do not have anywhere near the same contact with the work of earlier days, so I'm not certain what is going on but a repair is required. However, even knowing this going in, I would buy them again. July 26, 2014
