RedHead® Ironhorse Comfort Flex 6'' Steel Toe Waterproof Work Boots for Men
Comfort yes, Dry no
It is true that these boots fit very comfortable right out of the box. First pair of work boots that I did not have to buy insoles for in years.
Waterproof they are not!! I drive a delivery truck in upstate NY. My feet are soaked every night when I get home. Not only from the top, but from the bottom at the sole up through the insole.
Good for alot of walking but forget about using them in snow.

Most comfortable work boot ever.
This is the second pair of boots that I have worn out and I am in the process of getting another. Very good boot but for me in construction sole lasted 9 months and isn't waterproofed. I still will get another pair because they are very comfortable and fit better than any work boot in the past 20 yrs.

Tough, heavy, toesaver, not waterproof.
I work construction, less than 100 million dollars I won't even touch the job....
I wore a pair of these for 8 months got broken in good and comfortable still looked like new.
The inside wore a little, ....
BUT sicssor lift ran over my foot and tore up my boots...trapped my foot.
IF I HAD NOT BEEN WEARING THESE BOOT I WOULD HAVE LOST MY TOES OR WORSE!!
I had little toe, 3 foot bones in my foot, and spiral fractor of my ankle. and would have been worse but the steel insole & toes gave their lives for my foot.
I WANT A NEW PAIR NOW...WORTH EVERY PENNY THEY COST.
But they aren't waterproof...and the stiching between upper and sole will break...other than the best boot I ever owned in 20 yrs.of building trade.

Disappointed in Redhead
I am a handyman by trade and I am in and out of weather elements 5 to 6 days a week, 9 to10 hour days. I bought these 2 months ago and within 30 to 45 days the soles were coming off at the toes...also found out last week after an inch of snow that they are truely NOT waterproof.
I buy Redhead clothing and really love them, so I thought I would try thier boots...NOT any more. Last pair of boots I bought were from a "supercenter" for half the money but lasted almost 3 years. I guess you don't always get what you pay for!
