    usually anything Dickies makes is pretty solid
    these were shit. this pic was taken after about a month of wearing em at work.

    yesterday i said fuck this shit and bought a pair of timberlands. i see why so many people wear timbs now. they are so fucking comfortable. its a shame they are gonna be ruined at work. :lol:


    edit: ^^ that rubber part at the toe isnt suppoessed to be wavy like that. it was flush when i got em. ^^

    Timberlands are fucking sneakers, of course they are comfortable, I wouldn't consider them real work boots.
    I rock caterpillars and north face boots for work, fuck timberland.

    Real work boots aren't supposed to be all comfy when you're trying them on at foot locker.
    You need to wear them for a day to break them in, then they form around your natural foot shape/movements.
    Once you've broken a good pair in nothing is better.

    i got the steel toe, chemical resistant, oil resistant, anti slip, non marking. flat black leather.
    didnt get em at a footlocker went to a store named Boot World. they defiantely felt better at the end of the day than when i put em on this morning. def had some breaking in especially around the heel and top of the foot.
    ill take yer word for it tho, since they are my first pair and it sounds like you know your shit.

    They probably are real boots then, I've tried on a couple pair of timberlands before though and thought WTF?
    I've had Air Force Ones that felt tougher than the regular timberlands they sell around here.

    Best boots in the biz, hands down. over the course of 3 years i owned only 2 pairs when i used to do man work. they last.
    they also have better design. they are heavy but are just as comfy a thick skate shoe.

    Dudes, Timberland makes the PRO series boots which are all steel and composite toe work boots. They are great. I have two pairs. Don't sleep on these.
