Steel toe is not approved by most military forcesIf you are planning on purchasing these boots and you are in the military, be aware you may not pass the next uniform inspection.
Steel toe are no longer authorized in most forces, just something to think about before spending that extra money. New regulations require composite, not steel.

Not great qualityMy husband has to have steel toe boots for work. We normally buy once a year. We bought these boots about 6 months ago, and they started falling apart 3 months ago. My husband threw them out yesterday. They were not worth the money. He liked the side zipper. However, for the money we spent, they should have lasted longer. He will more than likely be paying a little more and going back to Wolverine.

Great boots but not long lastingWe are buying these for the third time in three years because they are comfortable, warm enough for winter and a great fit. Unfortunately they barely last a year with frequent use. The lining wears out and then boot parts wear out the feet.

Solid, tough, and durableI bought these for my fiancé. This is probably his 5th pair. He loves them. He practically only wears these boots and they last almost a year and is really hard on shoes.

Comfortable and Durable Steel ToeMy husband loves this boot for its lightweight, comfort and durability. As a crude oil hauler he's in and out of a truck for hours a day, in all types of terrain and weather so he needs a good steel toe boot. He says this boot is the most comfortable steel toe boot he has ever worn. This is his third pair (Christmas present) in four years. He loves them!

Fit my needs.They're sized a bit oddly, I wear 10's in everything. 9.5 for these. They need to be broken in, they pinch at the ankles when new, don't wear them for the first time on a 12 hour shift when you're walking/standing the whole time. It rained all morning, walking through some large puddles, my feet stayed dry and warm. Great boots for the price, will probably buy them again.

What is D Width? I'm about to order some Bates steel toes boots for my hubby and he needs just a regular width.
Asked by: goldeyedbbydoll
A width size of "D" in Men's or Boys' shoes is of medium or regular width (not narrow and not wide). For a wide option you will want to look for an "E" width.
