Great for 4-5 months
I work for a city water and sewer department. I have had these boots since early September and they haven't been waterproof for a couple months. The bottom velcro straps won't stay secure and the liner in the right boot has been pulling out with my foot. If you like to replace boots every 4-6 months then these are great but if you want them to last a year then dont buy these.

So. Comfortable. So. Light.
I bought these as a deviation from red wing because I find their boots heavy and I wanted to branch out before I got too set in my ways. I cannot express how great these boots are. I’m a welder and having the 8” on them helps a lot. The soles are very nice. I will be VERY upset if they ever discontinue these boots.

Not a bad boot so far
Not a bad boot so far. Works well for welding and torching. Water proof is only good to the middle strap. I thought is was all the way up like my old boots but it's not. All in all I would order again. I hope maybe in the future they make them water proof all the way up the boot for the money you spend.

Better fit than expected
I bought these a couple months ago. Turns out they were about half a size or maybe even a full size to big. I’m only giving them four stars because I couldn’t just send them back and swap them out for the right size. Customer service told me I would have to completely refund and reorder them to get the right size. But I used my one time 10% discount to cover the cost of the express shipping. So Instead of sending them back I bought some dickies work socks to help fill them out and I love them. Even with the inconvenience I will probably buy a second pair just to keep in storage for when these finally give out.

I first bought these in Nevada, on a vacation, mind you.
I am a ready mix driver, I am in acid, mud, water, uneven ground. These are the best things since peanut butter. My feet stay dry, warm, and breathe in the summer, I work anywhere from 6-16 hous a day, comfortable all day. I just bought my second pair and am waiting for them to come in. 2+ yrs. Best money ever spent. Thank you ARIAT.

Just got em
My pair just arrived. I usually get Matterhorn miner boots( the tiger toe outlasts the boot but last pair I got really bothered my right foot after the steel toe shifted. No matter what boot I’ve tried my right foot hurts. Put these on today and after a couple hours no pain in the right foot. They look cool too and easy off and on for climbing in and out of my sleeper in truck.

Best boots by far!!!!!
I bought these boots 4 months ago and they are superior to other boots. I work in stone machining,which means these boots are put to the test. Other waterproof boots fail after 2 months in constantly we t conditions. These boots are still holding up great and i work 60- 100+ hrs a week. Do yourself a favor and by a pair.
