Boots fell apart from design flaw
I bought the composite toe version of these boots 1.5 years ago within 6 months the heel guard stiching came out and the rubber started to crack the overall boot was comfortable to wear but it just didn't hold up the heel on one of my boots just ripped out today and I have had cheaper boots last longer. I work on concrete in a hospital as maintenance everyday and I don't do anything that should have caused that much damage. The design is flawed I still like carrharrt boots but I won't buy another pair of these model. I hope the new models that they came out wolith hold up better. I don't really want to switch brands

Great on the outside, terrible on the inside
These boots look awesome out of the box, they look extremely durable. The break in period on these boots was pretty rough. After that was over they were comfortable and the outside of the boots didn't get beat up or scratched no matter what I threw at them. Then about 3 months into having them the lining and the soles started to tear. 3 months later the insides of the boots are now gone, blown out, shredded. They just don't last. They definitely spent the bulk of the money on the outside of the boots. I would not buy again.

I purchased these boots to test them out as a potential replacement for my current boots, so far I have put about a week of use into these boots. I've worked around the house bucking up logs and splitting firewood. They are great. The only downside is I can see them having some fatigue problems on hard surfaces. They tend to press ever so slightly on my little toe but not so much as to cause problems. i will do a review update once they have some miles on them.

Don't be fooled by others reviews, test yourself.
Overall impressed. I have always been a carhartt person and when I saw these boots at the store I really liked the look of them. I tried them on and they had a decent first fit. They ran tight as expected but I wanted to be able to break them in to my foot due to the fact that I put in nearly 20,000 steps a day where I work. They caused mild discomfort to my foot for a week or two and then finally broke in perfect. The sole has been wearing perfectly for how much I walk and work these boots throughout the week mostly all being in a concrete setting. Overall a tough work boot, very shocked to see such poor reviews. I bought these before I looked at the reviews online and am glad I did because I can say I tested them and proved them myself. If you like the way they look and are going for a nice lace up, give these a shot they are a great choice and will be my next choice when my current pair wears out completely.
