Comfort
Some Great Boots - by , Oct 07, 2009
0/ 5 Stars
I'm on my 3rd pair of these boots and I absolutely love them. My dad has been buying them for about 7 years now and has probably went through 5 pairs. I started about 3 years ago. He works in a factory and loves the comfort while standing on concrete. I on the other hand work on computers and walking around the office these things are the best. They are worth every dime you pay for them. I have 3 pairs and I use all of them regularly (outside work, work, general use).

Every now and then I encounter products that are so demonstrably inferior, that I urge the students to pass those products by. By combining your poor quality product; with a cavalier lack of customer support, you've earned the right to be on the top of my "Do Not Buy" list. "Sole-less in NY"

I have purchased a pair of these boots for 20 years. Loved ever pair...until now! The location of the forward outer seam has moved. Depending on your foot shape "the little toe" really feels all the pain! I called and asked what has changed. The reply was " they moved the manufacturing to another location". Good Luck!

I have bought a new pair of these boots every year for at least 9 years and would have been a life long customer, but I went to Sears to buy a new pair and found out they are now made in China!! They were still the same price and are not made with the same quality. I am very disappointed, and will not buy these boot again.

sole fell off - by , Apr 06, 2015
1/ 5 Stars
These boots were comfortable right from the start, which I appreciate. The uppers are bulletproof and the gel insole is great. However, the entire sole of the R boot simply fell off. "Direct attached" or whatever is NOT the way to make work boots! The sole is not even 1/2 worn. Make sure to buy sewn on sole boots!

Soles fell apart - by , Oct 01, 2015
1/ 5 Stars
Worst boots I've ever purchased. I bought these for casual wear. I did some hiking in them on rocky terrain and the soles literally fell apart. Half the heel is gone on one boot and large pieces of the sole have fallen off both boots. THIS IS AFTER ONE DAY OF HIKING IN THESE BOOTS. Don't buy these boots for off pavement use.

After 27 years of satisfaction, no more. - by , Oct 03, 2015

After 28 years of brand loyalty for a product that made me happy I am going to try other brands. I don't want customer service, I don't want replacement boots even if replaced at no cost, I want what I used to buy. The Durashock work boots were the only boot that lasted a full year, I'm tough on boots, and without question the most comfortable footwear I ever used. Now I'm going to try out other brands. Every morning it was a pleasure I looked forward to, slipping on my comfortable Durashocks, until they started falling apart in weeks instead of a year. The shoe laces were so well made on my older pairs I decided to save a few pairs from worn out boots. I ended up using the older shoe laces, which lasted a full year already, on my newer boots after a couple months. The newer laces sheaths broke, on the two newer pairs I had bought and bunched up against the brass lace eyelets. The stronger core of the shoelaces broke weeks later. After a few months, the boots soles are breaking apart and becoming detached from the leather upper. The leather over the steel toes has holes worn all the way through. Only the old shoe laces I saved from previous boots are holding up. The green fabric on top of the cushion inserts also came off after a couple of months on the newer boots, which wasn't a previous issue either. Maybe Wolverine will resolve this issue, meanwhile it will be interesting to try out some other brands.

Great comfort, poor quality sole - by , Jan 25, 2016

This is my 4th pair and probably my last. Very comfortable boot, which keeps bringing me back to them, but the soles just do not stand up. They crumble, break off in chunks and tend to split.

they don't last - by , Mar 22, 2016

I bought these boots at the every end of December 2015. They felt great. I only wear them on weekends as my job requires dress shoes. I went to take them off several weeks ago and one of the heels had halfway separated at the sole. Black powder fell out. The response from Wolverine will be to take it up with warranty but a 30 day warranty isn't much for product support. Too bad- have been happy with Wolverine boots in the past. If I had spent $30 for these I would not feel justified complaining but this is an obvious defect for a fairly expensive pair of boots.
