OMG......I am a female electrician. I wore an insole with this shoe. I consider my feet apart of the toolbox. I invest in my footwear. This shoe fell apart in less than 6 months. The shoe started to lift from the sole. The sole cracked on the bottom. I still have thread on the bottom of the sole. Nothing is flat. I work in new construction in a dry location. I used these shoes in a commerical office building. The normal environment for a construction worker. An environment with sheetrock and metal studs. Save your money.....go buy the competor's shoes. These shoes are not tough enough to survive a normal construction site. Sorry keen! I have to let others know how poorly your shoe perform. These shoes are better choice for the shiney shoes and soft hands.......not the installers!
