insulation. They’re stitched and heat welded on to a Goodyear welt

Women’s sizes 6-12. $184.95 per pair.

First off let me say these are the best option for vegan steel toe work boots that I could find - they're relatively comfortable and they look great. Overall I am satisfied with my purchase but I do have a little bit of negative feedback.PROS:1. They look awesome, both with dress clothes and casual/work clothes. Plenty of traction and a classic tread pattern.2. They are extremely comfortable when in the office or doing light labor tasks.3. They're vegan of course! And they are manufactured in fair working environments.4. The steel toe seems to be nice and roomy, and will accommodate thicker socks.CONS:1. Since they lack "speed laces" they are next to impossible to get on and off! VS should consider implementing speed laces like most other work boots have, or BETTER YET add a zipper on the side like tactical boots have. 2. They make my feet really, really sweaty. This adds to the difficulty of removing the boots after a long day. At the same time, the material up the sides sticks to my legs.3. The soles have very little shock absorption despite what the description claims. I walk over 2 miles a day and will definitely need insoles. After a long day, my heels are killing me.4. The tongue doesn't have a loop through which to run the laces, so the tongue slides around side-to-side and gets wrinkled up sometimes. It's annoying, and it allows more dirt and moisture to get inside the boot.5. There is next to no protection for the heel. It does not feel good to get hit in the Achilles tendon with a flying piece of wood or rock.
Mine Didn't Last

At first I loved these boots, but after about six months one of the soles cracked completely horizontally at the ball of my foot.Don't want to be too negative but 170.00 is expensive for something to break down so quickly.

I have been waiting for a shoe like this forever thank you so much for making this shoe and making it affordable.

I can't even remember how long I've had these boots. Probably about 5 years or so, but they are still going strong. I even got into a motorcycle accident and slid on my side about 100 ft. They are scuffed but they protected me well. They even have a steel toe which is awesome.These are not "protective gear" but they they are probably some of the most protective vegan boots outside of actual street or touring boots specifically designed for such use.They are tough. If these things ever wear out, I will buy another pair in a heartbeat. I will never be without my para boots.
AWESOME but a problem

AWESOME!!! BOOTS ALL AROUND EXCEPT--the eyelets.a week after i got the boots multiple eyelets were coming out. i got a few replaced and still they came out. a while ago i got bigger eyelets put it and they seem to to be holding up very well but this all costs me money that i dont really have. so ive had this for maybe 6 months, awesome boots but pricey.
