Rated 4 out of 5 by Pixie5979 Good quality cheap work boots
I bought these to replace a pair of Asda workboots that had finally given up after long hard use.
These boots have been redesigned but are still good quality. They look nice and are very comfortable to wear.
The steel toe cap on these boots feel better than the ones on the old style pair i replaced.
Like the other reviews state, the eyelets are rough/sharp and ruined the laces with just a couple of uses. However for the price and quality of the boot replacing the laces with heavy duty combat laces isn't really a problem.
If you need a good quality cheap pair of safety boots i would definitely recommend these.

Looks great, feel comfortable, well made, except for a possible design error in the upper sharpish metal eyelets. The angles of these also tend to cause premature wear on the laces whilst pulling-up.
Mine started to fray and break down after only four days of light use!.
However, to be fair, they were generally very good value for money, so I intend to buy some stronger lace which hopefully be OK.

Rated 1 out of 5 by VendAssured Let down badly by metal eyelets
I purchased these from my local store, only to return them the next day.
As the previous reviewer stated, the metal eyelets are sharp and badly set. The design of, and placement of, the eyelets make it difficult to smoothly pull the laces tight as the laces 'lock on' the sharp edges of the eyelets. The sharp edges cut into the laces causing extreme excessive wear on the laces.
It is a shame as otherwise the overall design of the boot is great.

Rated 1 out of 5 by JCB76 Poor Quality
Bought these for the work site, but as other reviewers have said, the laces started to fray after only one day due to the poor eyelet design. On the second day one of the eyelets came off when tightening the laces. Would have swapped these but have taken them out of the country. On the plus side, they fit well!

Rated 1 out of 5 by JRHartley exceptionally poor quality
Laces shredded and snapped after less than a fortnight and the heel cushioning inside of the shoes wore away a few weeks later resulting in small pieces of sponge inside the shoes or stuck to my socks every time I used or removed the shoe. Eventually there was no sponge cushioning left to wear through just the bare heel of the boot. This was all within the space of a month, I wouldn't even class usage as heavy over that period either.
As a steel capped work boot which one would presume will be worn for several hours at a time and subjected to wear and tear plus all weather conditions these are unfit for purpose and would have been returned were it not for the fact it was an instore purchase where I failed to retain receipt.

Rated 3 out of 5 by dave114 poor eyelet design
as stated in previous reviews, eyelets are very sharp, laces only last for a few days before snapping. would not buy again until eyelets are changed.

This is the second pair of these my hubby has had for work. They're good value, comfy, sturdy and lasted quite well for the money.
