This is the updated version of the Safe Boot, and it's
definitely better! Features include steel toe, padded ankle collar,
moisture absorbing 'Cambrelle' linings, 'bellows' tongue for
improved water-resistance, and 'D-Ring' speed-lace system. Hard
wearing, oil, acid, abrasive and slip-resistant Airseal soles.
Rivets are added for extra strength, and these boots are warm-lined
and insulated throughout. Uppers have minimal seams to keep them as
water-resistant as possible (please use waterproofers if you will
be wearing them in wet conditions as they will repel some moisture
naturally, but will take on water if they are not used with an
additional waterproofer such as the Nikwax brand that we sell).
With very grippy tread pattern on the durable Airseal soles, these
boots are ideal for day-long comfort on your feet as well as
protection from on-the-job hazards. These boots run slightly large,
so if you wear a half size, we recommend rounding down the next
lower full size for the best fit. Available in limited Men’s sizes
5-14 and Women’s sizes 6-13. Normally $189.99 per pair, now on sale

These boots took a week or two to break in. They have lasted 2 years, while I used to replace work boots every 6-12 months. I work as a diesel mechanic and these have held up very well.
Outstanding boots but lacks CSA standard approval
From Marco Polo of Halifax, Nova Scotia on 8/10/2013.
I was concerned about the advice to step down a size. I disregarded the advice, and turns out these boots fit me perfectly (I'm a U.S. size 8). My decision to not follow the advice was based on other reviews and I also figured the worst case scenario would have been the boot would be a bit long but still wearable. As it turned out, it is perfectly sized to me, so based on customer experiences so far you may want to disregard the advice to size down, and returning a boot online would be annoying due to the shipping cost and wait time for replacement.These are in fact the most comfortable boots I've ever worn, I sometimes forget they're steel toe. They don't come with insoles, so keep in mind this will be an added expense and it's not comfortable to go without them. I bought myself a $20 pair of Dr Scholl's (previously dollar store insoles but they aren't worth it), and I've been using the boots daily and outdoors for about 3 months now on very rough surfaces. They're holding up better than I expected.I wish I had some assurance that these boots are CSA compliant or CSA approved, as here in Canada they require CSA boots for many trades, if anything happened this would become an issue that could be claimed against me. Fortunately employers are usually too busy to check, because otherwise I would have no choice but to wear leather in those trades. I feel safe in these boots, they seem like a good strong make.Very nice that they're fair trade & made in England and not some banana republic sweat shop.The last pair of boots I wore were leather, my father's Canadian military service boots he no longer used. They definitely weren't as comfortable but they were CSA approved. They only lasted a couple months, while this vegan pair is still going strong.It's frustrating to think that these boots may very well meet CSA standards but no one bothered to get them approved. If I was a manufacturer of safety boots I would keep my mind on standard approval because lots of people work in industries requiring this approval, it is essential.
Good boots even for coal mines
From Anonymous of Farmington, New Mexico on 4/16/2013.
I work at a coal mine and we are very hard on our boots. I bought this pair well over a year ago and they certainly have their fair share of scuffs and gouges but they held up very well. Unfortunately my lazy method of not quite untying them all the way and then forcing them back on my feet stressed the seam on the side and it began to tear. Then my lazyness of not quickly repairing the small tear lead to it tearing more. Then my dog chewed on that same area so needless to say I need a replacement. I will definitely go this route again.
Be aware of size!
From Peter Andreas Nielsen of Odense M, Denmark on 7/26/2011.
While the actual boot seems really good, I urge you not to follow the advice of stepping down half a size! I usually use a size 8 or 8½ which is why I decided to order the boots in size 8 thinking I would then be on the safe size taking the recommendation into consideration. However, the boots turned out to be just a bit too small. So, better safe than sorry - especially if you are ordering the boots from abroad where the shipping back and forth in the case of receiving too small boots doesn't seem appealing.
From Deanna of Charlotte, North Carolina on 12/24/2010.
Finally a non leather safety boot. I did go a size smaller as recommended, and they fit perfectly, right out of the box. But, what is with the shoe laces? They are so long. :) Great service also, I received them within a couple of days of ordering. I will definitely buy from this company again.
