I am a plumber. I have had great experience with Ariat brand boots and decided to give this work boot a shot. I love it and will replace these with the same (whenever they finally wear out).
Lightweight boot is fantastic for long work days. Holds up well in muddy/wet/dirty terrain, and the low profile/snug fit provides sure-footedness. I did not opt for the composite toe, and the plain toe has provided ample protection when working around rocky ground.
My only complain is that the sole squeaks when A) it's clean, and B) I'm walking on a polished floor. This being my only complaint, I'll take it!
