One of the best work shoes out there. I work in a machine shop and walk and stand on metal chips all day and the soles of these shoes hold up well. Expect to get a year or two of hard use from these Diehard shoes.
I have been buying these shoes for decades and I have noticed they don't last as long or feel as good as they used to.The material is cheaper an cracks. What a shame..go back to the old ways even if you have to charge a few dollars more.
Long lasting Sole
Topline Collar (or Cuff) Cracks Wears out prematurely.
Price increased to $95 and shoe quality stayed the same.
These shoes are the closest thing to Knapp shoes I can find, my 1st pair lasted 5 years in an oily-greasy environment. The uppers will wear out before the bottoms do! They give good support, which is important to me, as I have back trouble. Great shoe for the money
stand up well on concrete
quality item that I purchase every year
This is my second pair of these shoes. My one complaint about them is that instead of a traditional ridged tread pattern on the bottom of the soles, they have raised lettering saying "DieHard" which has a tendency to catch dirt and mud in the lettering if you are walking in wet soil. You can't remove the dirt by the normal means of banging the shoes on a hard surface but instead have to use high pressure water.
I have been buying the diehard work shoe since it was made in the light brown. Sears stopped making them in brown about 20 years ago. The brown work shoe was more fore giving,not showing the wear on the leather as black leather will. I always bought the shoe with the diehard writing on the bottom of the soul and reason being the other shoes has a tendency to grab small stones and excessive amounts of soil which would drop unwanted debri in your work area. The souls of these shoes are almost indestructible, but the leather will show how much wear you really did to the shoes. There is almost no break in time when you first put them on and the funny thing is I am wearing a pair of diehards as I am writing this review.
Feels good and looks elegant
I bought a pair of these shoes 2 years ago and have enjoyed the comfort and fit everyday I wear them.
The soles still look nearly new and the leather tops although not shiny as they used to be are still in good condition.
Like many of the items Sears sell with the Die Hard name, these shoes have outlasted any other work shoe I have ever worn.
This is a work shoe that my husband loves. It is sturdy, the size is true and it looks good with his work clothes. This was a first time purchase for us but I expect it will not be the last!
I have been buying these shoes for past 15 yeas. I have seen these shoes go down in quality. In past 6 years or so I have been extremely disappointed. I will not be purchasing these shoes again. Poor craftsmanship!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Very comfortable shoe and easy to slip on. Honestly one of the best shoes for the price and you can't beat it for the price in this area. Thank you Sears.
I`ve worn DieHards for Over 40 years...I started wearing them when I was on a Pop Truck Working for R/C Cola back in the 1970`s .... They are Comfortable and they Last for a Good Long Time... Well worth the money.... and they Shine up Nicely... You can Wear them Out at night as a Dress Shoe.... Thank You
Wal of the`RAPIDS``CEDAR`that is............................
The look and style of a great leather dress shoe, solid, sturdy, with steel toe and shank, and ready for the job. Great for any work job, kitchen or carpentry.
Husband is a truckdriver and swears by this shoe for comfort. They hold up well with daily wear. Tried another shoe once and trashed it within months.
I have been wearing these shoes for about 6 yrs. and they used to be of a better quality and more durable. I work on a job that requires me to be on my feet alot, climbing ladders and monitoring equipment. I dont like boots in the summer so these were a good option. They just dont hold up , the leather ( if thats what you call it) cracks, the insole gives out, I find myself buying insoles to make the shoes comfort last longer than 90 days. The shoes are good for just what they are " a fill in until I find something else". Would I recommend them to a friend ? Not unless I told them FIRST. how I feel about the shoes.
