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.
I'm on my second pair of these Oxford. The first ones lasted over 4 years. I should mention that I'm in the air conditioning business, and have absolutely put these shoes to the test. Here in Phoenix AZ, rooftops can hit 150 degrees or better, and having these last so long is nothing short of amazing. The first month or two you own them, they beat up your feet a little because they are so stiff, but after your break in, they are the most comfortable, best looking work shoe available. Buy some!
I have bought these work shoes as long as I have been a mechanic at my shop 41 years. This last pair has not lasted 6 months. What has happened to Sears Quality ???
These shoes are great for work. They are made well. The toe, while not steel, is stiff and provides protection. The soles are glued but seem to hold up well with a lot of use, even in water. In all a good work shoe.
They look real nice in the pictures. And for $90 it seemed like they would be very good quality. It's smoke, mirrors, and a little trading on the past reputation of this product and/or name. The shoes looked cheap right out of the box. I'm fairly certain the "full grain leather" is actually plastic coated leather. It's fairly thin leather as well. Whatever these shoes used to be, they're not now. Another Chinese success story...
This is the last time I will buy these shoes. I have used this shoe for over 25years.Yes they are now PLASTIC/vinyl and smell like plastic not real leather. Genuine leather uppers maybe inside but outside Plastic.
The store I went to had two different kinds one beat up pair and this one looked newer so I bought them. I will be returning them. I just wish that the big wigs at Sears could take the time and see some of there products and how bad they are getting. Could this be the reason that sears is going under? MADE IN USA IS A GOOD THING. MAKE IT HAPPEN.
The best work shoe for your feet, slip resistant and water proof. I work all day standing up and this is the only shoe I wear. I love the fact that I order online and get my shoes within a couple of days and no shipping fee. I recommend 100%.
We have been using this product for about 2 years now and we have to say that it's the best investment that we have Made for work, the durability and the price is what makes us keep on coming back.
My husband loves these shoes.He uses them for work,says they are comfortable.Last him a long time considering he wears them daily....
Still using it after some time. Does cause feet to sweat so get odor inserts.
This is a fairly decent and comfortably shoe. My husband wears them to work but they need to be replaced about every six months because the sole does not last. I'm glad they are on sale quite often because I do not think they are worth the full price.
I have tried many other shoes, I do not bother anymore. Stick with what you know works the best. Been wearing this shoe in Kitchen line of work for many years. Does not slip on floors. Soles are great, they do not have what most slip resistant shoes are known for, clogging up full of junk. These soles stay very clean in the kitchen, not filling up full grease and particles. This makes the end of your night easier than rinsing out you shoes. Would not wear any other shoe in the kitchen, besides they look great when speaking to the guests.

Worn very little, but after a couple of years soles break down and crumble and fall off in pieces
I'm in the delivery business and have worn Die Hard Oxfords for well over 20 years. They are kind of heavy but they protect your feet well on top and bottom. The leather uppers can be polished to a shine and have been put to the test with all kinds of weather, objects falling on my feet, and yes even dogs. The soles are very sturdy and support the arch very well. They don't have a lot of tread on them but I have never had a problem with that and I've walked in and stepped on about everything. It takes me about 8 months to wear a pair of these out. Even then the uppers are still holding up and the soles are in tact. I just get new ones because the inside of the shoe starts falling apart from getting wet and the tread on the soles get smooth from walking. Even then I use the old ones for working around the yard. I will continue to buy these until I retire or they stop selling them.
This is all I've bought in my entire working career (spanning 35+years). If you're looking for a shoe that will hold up in all weather, with daily use, I highly recommend.
My husband only buys his work shoes from Sears. They are priced well and hold up very good. Always happy with them.
The width of these plain toe diehard shoes are a great fit & not too loose or sloppy when tied.
My diehard steel toe oxfords have plenty of wiggle room for the toes however over time the leather stretches & the width becomes loose & sloppy when tied.
