My husband works for a package delivery company and really puts a beating on his shoes. I bought him these shoes based on the reasonable price and reviews from others. He really liked them and said they were very comfortable even after long days on his feet. His only complaint is they are not very water resistant and he now has to replace them because they stink really, REALLY, bad. Maybe if they resisted water a little better he could get a few more months out of them because they held up a lot better then most other shoes he's tried. I will definately order them again but with this new pair, he will try to preserve by using latex boot covers on rainy days. Overall, you cannot beat the value of these well made shoes.
