Work shoes

By On my feet most of the day Jim.

About Me Rarely Work Out

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Durable

Cons

Best Uses

    Comments about Men's Duluth Trading Ultimate Contractor's Oxfords:

    I was looking for everyday work shoes that were comfortable. I spent the extra money for these hoping for a spectacular shoe.
    When they first arrived, I was amazed at how heavy they are. I have owned boots that way less than these shoes. On the first day at work, I was suffering with the stiffness around my lower ankle. I thought I was going to have blisters for sure. Thankfully, no blisters.
    Now I have wore them daily for about two weeks. They have loosened up. I no longer notice the weight of them. I had to tighten the strings more so I don't walk out of them. (I usually never untie my shoes. I select this type of shoe so I can slip them on and off quickly if I must go in a customers home. And not have tying shoes to slow me down.)

      I am a plumber and these shoes are great for indoor work. I call these my summer boots. I wouldn't recommend these for a muddy job site but if you need some nice looking durable comfortable lightweight work shoes this is it.

        These are the best work boots/ shoes I have ever had and my second pair. I'm 66 years of age, work as a machinist and stand all day, usually 10 hours, six days a week. These shoes give me support, comfort and are very durable.

        Better deal than Redwing!

            Comments about Men's Duluth Trading Ultimate Contractor's Oxfords:

            I got these within 2 days of getting a pair of Redwing 8099 oxfords. The Duluth shoes have a nice soft leather lining and gel insole that would allow me to wear them without socks if I choose. The Redwings are hard and unlined. Maybe after more break-in the Redwings will be more comfortable but the Duluth shoes are nice rihgt away, even though they too need some break-in. I have no way of knowing how longevity will fare out but the Duluth shoes seem just as well made for $75 LESS!

                  Comments about Men's Duluth Trading Ultimate Contractor's Oxfords:

                  I wear these every day at work-mostly in an office. The shoes are incredibly comfortable, the Vibram sole provides a lot of cushion and I feel generally more stable. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because of the laces. I mean, come on, $180 for shoes and I have to go buy some real laces? The ones that come with them are barely long enough to double knot. I would definitely recommend these however, my next pair would be the low boot version for the extra ankle support-personal preference.

                      I think the shoe would be better looking with a darker sole.
                      Future buyers should know the sizes run a little bigger than normal.
