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 didnt get normal neubuck

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.

what kind of work you doin? look thru their catalog, if ur in new construction sites get one with a mud guard coating. ^^that hiker style is good all around. find a store in ur area to try shit on. they hire good shoe salespeople that know whats up. you may drop 180 on them but keep in mind you get what you pay for.

I've been wearing these, most comfortable boots I've ever worn. I even wear em when I'm not working. Georgia makes em, they come in steel toe as well.

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.

 

 

exactly!

 

no complaints about my timberland pro's

especially since i got them at sears and switched boxes. threw them in a box of a cheaper pair and got them at that price.

 

granted, i never used them outside all that much since i was working in a warehouse, but they took a nice beating regardless. comfortable as hell, in fact they are the most comfortable boot i ever bought. regular timbs are shit though, go with the pro's, or at least check them out.

I think people in machine shops and warehouses are the only ones who really need a steel toe.

I've worked in construction sites for years and never dropped anything on my foot that required a steele toe.

I never seen any of those real work boots by timberland though, probably because I've been in NYC and stopped looking at them aftr trying a pair of their garbage stret wear boots.
