Breaking in this boot is a chore. If you mink oil up the boots it makes it a little easier. Also when lacing up at first, don't go fully tight. It will make it difficulty to walk. Advise that you do not use your best socks to start with, the dye will bleed over to your socks. The boot is stout and should give you good wear.
First the boot seems to good quality built. The sole seems to be quality.The Perma hide material seems to decent quality. I did notice one of stitches that connects sole to the rest of boot was broken. Still will hold on fine without any fixes. I little super glue could easily fix it. It is not labeled waterproof however I did walk in a decent puddle and my feet did not wet. If really want to waterproof them use "fixn wax" it will waterproof them completely. The boot laces to me cheaper quality. I replaced with with military paracord. I work in a restaurant which has tile floors. Did not seem to slip resistance on them. For example the dining room floor is fine dry,. However if the wet from mopping or bottom of boots is wet from going outside it is very slippery. The kitchen floor seemed slippery when dry. Since I had slip resistant overshoes I used them my these boots which fixed the problem. Note you will need to have to have the overshoes 1 size bigger than they shoul...
I don't know who is deceptive: ********* or Overstock.com. The shoe was advertised as leather (including sole) but a piece of man made crap was shipped to me for *******. One of you should be ashamed of this deceptive behavior. I will not even pay ****** for that piece of crap. Just try to be honest next time.
Red Head Shanks
from Straight Outta Compton,
This is a beautiful-looking shoe but there were a few problems with it.
1- The shoe is more orange than yellow. This is not that Timberland boot color.
2- The insole is lacking. You may need to buy insole is your feet are not flat-footed.
3- The tongue is very thin.
I could deal with 2 & 3 but the deal breaker was the color. If you can rock slightly orange shoes then this shoe is for you.
