  • 3 out of 5 I was hoping these would be like NB shoes, but they are from another company's assembly line. These are very light and breathable, and the side zipper is great. The tread gives good traction and doesn't hold mud. A little stiff like a boot, not much cushion in the sole. The wide is only 2W. The suede tan gets stained. I wore them every day to work. At about five months I developed a mysterious knee injury; it felt like it was bruised inside and would not get better. After two months I got different boots and immediately my knee started healing.

  • too stiff to try

  • 2 out of 5 I bought these boots and they were way too stiff and rigid to even attempt a full duty shift. I returned them because I didn't dare strap them on for 12 hours. Walking around the house for 30 minutes was enough for me. From the top "padded" collar down to the bend of the toes, everything felt too stiff. Returned.

  • Great Boot!!
