Lasted 6 months
I was really pleased with these boots for the first 6 months, comfortable and seemed durable. Now after 6 months the front toe portion is starting to come off. Yes I work hard in them, but 6 months? These do not live up to the Carhartt name. Totally disappointed; I will probably not try another Carhartt footwear.

Comfortable boot but the inner heal part is made up of a material that gave me blisters on my heal.

Lightweight but not really comfortable
I guess I expected a little more for the money, in terms of comfort. They're ok, not any worse than other boots I've bought in the past. But so far, not super comfortable, with the composite toe slightly cutting into my foot.

They're lightweight, and the soles grip really well. I wish there were only one set of lace hooks at the top, and the bottom two were eyelets, so you could step into the boots and walk around without immediately lacing them.

Great Work Boots!
I was in the market for new boots and a friend recommended I try a pair of Carhartt boots. I chose these and I am honestly glad I did. I like the tough boot look. The durability of the boot is great. The insoles are great for people with flat feet ( which I have). After a 12 + hour work day my feet are not hurting like they previously were. They fit nice and being composite toe I figured they might be a little bit heavier, but they are surprisingly light on your feet. I'am very satisfied with my purchase. Worth every penny! 10/10 recommend these boots!!!!

Loved them but hot!
These are great boots. They last. I can stand for 12 hours on concrete and my feet do not hurt. With that said, they don't breathe much so my feet sweat and then smell. Ive never had smelly feet. During the winter I wear them daily.

Outstanding ankle support. More comfortable than previous boots I’ve owned. Hope they are as durable and everything else carhartt puts their name on.

These boots only take 2 days to break in the heel cup is a bit tight. My biggest problem is i have had these boots for just over a month and they are not water proof... Boots are soaked by the end of the day. So sad they claim to be water proof it should be changed to water resistant.

pull strap
off the shelf , i am very satisfied with the fit , especially the room in the safety toe area , i cant really comment on the quality or durability , check with me in 6 months , the big disappointment is in the fact that there is NOT a pull loop on the top back of the boot to use to pull the boot on , this is a must in my opinion , this would be seemingly a few dollars more to add this.
