This is a replacement pair of boots for the same model that I wore out over a period of almost 2 years with full time wear. They are comfortable for all day wear, and are easy on and off in a hurry with the side zipper. Also, the safety toe meets my uniform requirement at work. The only negative I've found so far is the zipper has been replaced with a different type. It has a much smaller pull so it may be hard to grab and pull for folks with larger fingers. The old zipper worked great, so I'm not sure why they had to mess with it. Overall a great boot though.
