"I got a pair of these around 4 years ago,and still have them. I'm a mechanic and machinist, on my feet 8-10 hrs a day, on concrete floors. These boots are comfortable and durable. They've stood up to all kinds of oils and chemicals, and metal shavings (chips). The only problem is they run BIG ! I've made them work by wearing two thick socks. You can't beat the quality / durability, they may cost more than a lot of shoes, but they have lasted 3 times as long as most work shoes that I've had. They don't claim to be water proof, but they are close to it. I'm getting ready to buy a new pair, not because the old ones are worn out, but because I now need a safety toe, and I'm tired of wearing extra socks. Especially in the summer. Last time I got a 10 1/2 ee, this time I'm going to try 9 1/2 ee. I normaly wear 10 1/2 - 11 ee depending on brand / style."Yes, I recommend this product.

"I have had them for a year. I broke them in using the wet and wear method. These boots quickly softened and started to conform to my feet. I use thick wool as a matter of preference and now I learn that boots like these are made for that type sock."Yes, I recommend this product.

"I bought a pair at Cabala's in Idaho Falls, ID, over 5 years ago and wore them pretty much daily. I had a cobbler put a patch on the outside foot, after it was breaking down. I also periodically cleaned and oiled them up at times, like any leather requires. ButΓÇª.. Last fall gathering firewood for our home in Star Valley, WY, working 9,000 feet east of Cokeville, WY, I had a logging accident which caused a compound fracture on my ankle with the fibula coming the side of my ankle in the boot, along with a lateral break in the knee. They had to cut the boot off, since I felt my foot would have come off with the boot. I had to discard that pair. Now after 9 plus months of healing (not an easy task at 70 years old), I think I could handle a good boot on my foot again. I found these boots in Baker City, OR at a D&B Supply, realizing they were the same brand and nearly the same item type, and purchased them. If they are anything like the originals, they are a good work boot. "Yes, I recommend this product.

"I got these boots for christmas and loved them. However within 4 months of having them the back heel folded in. Other than that the boot is fine but now it lost all comfort of the boot"Yes, I recommend this product.
Joe1982, Florida, United States Certified Purchase
"I bought this boot a month ago and the leather on the back of my left heel is folded over and lost its shape. The right boot is fine so I can only contribute this to inconsistent build quality. It's a shame because other than that I love the boots. However quality and durability are what I was after for an expensive work boot."Yes, I recommend this product.

SamTheBeekeeper, Fresno, CA, United States Certified Purchase
"As a beekeeper, I demand a lot from my boots. I need them to keep the bees out of my trousers, dig in when lifting hives in wet orchards, keep my feet dry and comfortable even when they are caked with mud. I need the stitching to hold up to continued use. When honey falls, I need a boot that won't warp or discolor when the stickiest honey and wax coats it. The 4444s are the magic boot. I slip into them and concentrate on beekeeping, trusting that they will support me dutifully wherever I go. This is my first pair of western boots and it certainly won't be my last. Justin's are up to the task."Yes, I recommend this product.
