Rated 5 out of 5 by Diase ready to wear out of the box
When my dad came home from WW I he brought home 2 pair of these same boots. When I saw them years ago in your catalog I tried a pair they were the same...As a boy I use to wear them and his uniform. Then I wore them to help out in the field. So since then I have kept one or two pair in the mud room for summer work. They have the support I need and the comfort I want. I am almost sure the company who makes these now made them for the troops in WW ! .......Thanks so much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 43FordGPW Great BOOTS!!
This is my second pair after my first pair of 5 years+ of wearing almost everyday. Slightly narrow on regular boot but went to EE and fit perfect. Great for casual work wear. Even use these for my WW2 reenacting. Very similar to WW2 US Army service boot. Initially stiff boot but breaks in quickly. Recommend these to everyone.

I purchased these awesome boots as a gift in the recipient's regular size, a 9 1/2 medium. Unfortunately, the boots seem to run big, at least in the length, and they would have been too large once they stretched with wear, so I returned them. That said, the boots are high quality, the leather is gorgeous, and they are extremely well-priced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Walt077 My Husky Loves Them
Just received a pair of these and they are the best boots to touch my feet in years. At 66 and a diabetic I needed a boot with good ankle support and a firm platform. Good exercise every day is a must in Alaska. Customer service suggested I order my regular size, 9 1/2 EE even though some reviews stated they ran a bit large. Perfect with a boot sock with very little break-in required. The quality of this boot combined with the online service and delivery is absolutely tops. My four year old, rescued, female Siberian Husky also thinks they are great. They get me out for two long walks with her every day. Perfect therapy helped by a perfect boot!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SpartyOn06 Excellent Value; Great Fit
I bought these boots for everyday wear for work and play. My work environment is Industrial Design/Product Development oriented, and these boots fit right in with the eclectic styles.
They felt great right out of the box with plenty of room in the toe box, though I did loosen up a bit in the top eyelet for comfort. I am prone to stiff knees from years of weight lifting and sports, and combined with the cement floors at work, many casual shoes leave me with stiff knees by day's end. However, from Day 1, the Vibram sole have protected my knees all day long. Couldn't ask for anything else.
I hope this product continues to be made for years to come.

These boots are very well made, fit correctly, and provide excellent support while working outside. I have used them everyday in our 1/2 acre vegetable garden. The soles don't pick up and hold dirt the way most boots do. They require breaking in but most good boots do. Would buy again, though at 67 not sure I will have to. I think they will really last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MMickey Excellent Boots with Room for Toes
Very well made; (in America).
The leather is heavy which protects the foot but does require a little breaking in. High quality speed lacing nubs.
The last provides more room for toes than most boots. The boots are comfortable and true to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WiseCracker Exactly the Boots I Wanted
I've had them about two weeks and they're starting to feel great on my feet. The weight is good, as are the traction, and comfort on the ankles. I ordered a half size smaller based on recommendations, and I'm glad I did. So happy they come in EE. Perfect fit. I can tell these boots and I are going to be longtime friends. Thanks LLB!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JosP A well made boot for the price
I have to admit that though most of the Katahdin Iron Works Engineer boot reviews were glowing I was still skeptical. Well, I?ve been wearing these boots almost every day since I received them two weeks ago and I couldn?t be happier with my purchase. The first couple of day I experienced some tenderness at the boot top but that went away and other than that they were super comfortable out of the box and as I would expect, they get more comfortable every time I wear them. They seem to be well made and for the price, I believe a good investment.

Very comfortable, boots - worth breaking in. Apply boot oil to the uppers and work it in and knead it like you would a baseball glove. It takes several days of breaking in but is well worth the effort.
