been wearing diehard boots for 40 years with flat sole. no mud tracking into customers house. cant find flat sole diehard boots.please bring them back asap thanks
I loved these boots … before they changed the soles. I am a floorcovering contractor, and have worn this boot for decades. They are extremely comfortable, with little to no break-in period. However, what I liked about them the most was the smooth soles. I never had to worry about picking all the dirt out of them EVERY time I came in from outside. Changing the soles was a terrible decision. I'm thinking about taking my belt sander and grinding them down. I have never worn through the sole anyway. When I have to replace them it's usually because the liners have fallen apart, and the toes have developed holes. If grinding them flat doesn't do the trick, I won't be buying these boots anymore. Very disappointed.
The boot fits good and it’s very comfortable,also there very durable for work.
I'm on my third annual pair for lawn service work. They always survive the season, then the old ones become backups. I wear 11W shoes so 12W boots fit well. Fast break-in, I wear casually a few weeks before season starts. Steel shank/hard sole supports my feet well on undulating outdoor terrain, while keeping me dry & providing adequate comfort. Tread could be more aggressive for outdoors; by end of season tread is on the smooth side but not terrible. Regular price is reasonable but patience waiting for specials pays off; I got my last pair for like $55 this year, delivered to my door :-)
I’ve been purchasing this boot for almost 40 years, why did they change? 1. The new sole collect’s mud where as the old style did not. 2. Since the change the size is different and they don’t fit, I used to order 10D online with no issues. PLEASE BRING BACK THE OLD STYLE I returned this boot and won’t purchase this product!!!
