These are the best work boots I have ever worn. I am now retired, but still wear them whenever I can. They are super comfortable, classically styled traditional work boots. The leather is soft, supple and strong and a really nice color. They look good with jeans and khakis and hold up to whatever working conditions I have thrown at them. They are not insulated which helps keep the feet a little cooler down here in the super humid and hot tropical South. The 8 inch height provides great support for my 6 foot 6 inch tall self. I also own Timberland Pro, Thorogood, Irish Setter and Red Wing boots most in the same style as the Carolina boot, But I prefer to wear the Carolinas because they are so much more comfortable than all the others. In fact, these are comfortable, fit beautifully and are wearable right out of the box.
My only suggestions for improvement are to make the lace hooks a little bigger, make the tongue slightly wider and maybe pad the tongue.
BOTTOM LINE: recommended
