These work shoes have been on my feet everyday since I received them and they show very little sign of wear and tear. Don't get me wrong, they don't look the same as the day they came out of the box but that's to be expected in a manufacturing facility. Very little wear and tear on the laces or the leather. I did notice a small separation appearing by the sole at the spot where my shoe bends up as I walk. Threw a little superglue on it, good as new. The steel toe is barely noticeable as I move around the shop floor. With plenty of wiggle room and absolutely no pinching of my toes. Thankfully I haven't had to test the shoe's waterproof capabilities but I can guarantee they will stand up to anything I come across at work.
