This is my 3rd and 4th pair of Wolverines (bought 2 pair because of the buy 1 get 1 half off) .My first 2 pair lasted about 2 years each and they held up great with a couple of insole change here and there. I work for the phosphate mines and here in the plant most of the flooring is metal grating (not the best surface for boots) and some asphalt, but these boots have held up great and are very comfortable. I would recommend these to anyone.
I bought these boots after trying one on, only to find out the next morning that the right boot is tighter than the left boot. Also, the left boot has some sort of problem in the sole that makes it feel as if something is under my foot, like a sock that slid down, but it hasn't. After three weeks, several blisters etc I'm still not comfortable with these boots. At this point I'm considering going to the Red Wing store for new boots and donating the Sears boots to charity. You can bet I'll never buy another pair of boots from Sears again. I will also be warning my co-workers about buying boots from Sears.
