Very disappointed in these boots as they look great compared to most of the alternatives.
I bought these in a size 12, and found the toe area very tight, with the top of the steel toe cap touching the tops of my toes and the front of the boot tight against the tips of my toes with no room to move them. Not good at all if I'm going to be wearing these for 12 hours at a time. I have never had this problem with any other safety boots of the same size.
In addition to this, the design of the top section of the boot is very poor. The tongue is too small for the boot to be fully laced up comfortably. When the laces are done up, they sit slightly higher than the tongue resulting in an uncomfortable fit. The top tabs don't seem to fit well against the tongue either. Only really suitable for wearing casually with the top two lace eyelets undone.
They may be stylish, but if the practical features are badly designed and they don't fit, they're not fit for purpose.
This might not be consistent over all sizes but I would certainly recommend people wanting a size 12 to avoid.
As a side note, I had to place a special order for these size 12's at my local branch because no size 12 footwear is stocked. This is ridiculous! Builders and tradesmen quite often come in large sizes!

I looked at boot reviews and that made my choice harder, for every good review there was a bad or ok one.
In the end I went for these and so far so good.
They are really comfortable and strong.
I have not had them long enough for reliability but its a great start.
I would say try these.

Don't waste your time or money buying anything else. I bought and tried on a numerous boots until I tried the scruffs. They are light ,water resistant and were comfortable right out of the box.I have had them for over five weeks and my feet have never been sore after spending up to 6 hours a day in these boots. I am very picky and always try on different boots before I buy and these for the money are awesome. Highly recommended and the staff at screwfix were great too.

The only way is switchbacks!!!!!!!!!!! Excellent all round boots. Best boot in screwfix. Any bad feedback must be a bad batch. Will not have anything bad said against switchbacks.
