DeWalt Recip Waterproof Safety Boots Black Size 9
Initially Good then useless
These are comfortable boots however after a few months the insole has started moving around into a slightly uncomfortable shape. The bigger problems were that the laces broke within a week, but that was to be expected with the sort of laces they come with having replaced them the new laces have easily lasted three months. They were waterproof but only up to the bottom of the tongue of the boot if the tongue got wet then the water would go straight through to your feet. And now having used them for approximately three months only about 45 hours a week in a yard the stitching on the outside is falling apart and there is a two inch break in the stitching where it just fell apart one day. Where the sole meets the rubber you can see it flexing and the join opening and closing, I had a cheap pair of own brand boots from another supplier that easily lasted 9 months and they stayed waterproof for the entire time, I expected these to be a lot better. Occasionally the grip on the soles would disappear however they seemed OK on oil however on wet timber it was like skating, also they tended to get sand and crushed glass stuck to them when wet and this then made them rather slippery. Steer clear of these boots, there are far more durable boots out there.

Comfy in the end
Bought a size nine, thought they were a bit snug when I put them on for work but thought like any other boot they will give a little and be fine after a few shifts. Wore them for one shift and they killed me,I checked the size on the boot and they were an eight, I had been given size eights in a size nine box. Paul in the Swansea branch sorted the problem straight away and the size nines fit perfect and are comfortable straight off, feet remain cool and the boots are very light. All round good buy and good service..

very sweaty boots.
they look ok but would not recommend at all. maybe waterproof on outside but not inside. my feet were very sweaty wearing these thus makes the boots and your feet smell within 2 -3 days which never did with a pair of caterpillars.worth paying a bit extra for a pair of cats. i was very disappointed and i regret buying these. never again.
