Pros: This boot is designed for hiking but can be used for many work environments, and because of this, Comfort is the strong point here - not to mention the Gore-Tex design which offers incredible durability in cold, wet and damp conditions. Gore-tex is GREAT.
Cons: Since it's a hiking boot, the sole that is made with a softer plastic - ideal for hiking but less than ideal for work sites or concrete. You will get great grip no matter where you wear it, but the sole may wear down faster if used mainly on hard concrete surfaces.

Let’s Talk Comfort…

This boot is not only designed for tough condition, but also for people who spend a lot of time in these tough conditions – AKA extreme hikers. The exclusive anti-fatigue technology gives you long lasting comfort and you can spend all day in these while resting assured that your feet won’t start aching. They have a soft sole and padded heal for optimal support and on top of that your feet will be dry – bone dry in fact! the Gore tex lining will make sure of this. Whether you’re are looking for a very comfortable pair of work boots, or you just love hiking, these will keep you happy either way.  There is nothing less comfortable than having to work or walk around all day in wet feet; don’t’ worry about that with these.

 

Let’s Talk Safety…

The biggest selling point with regards to safety is the premier traction you will get; these boots grip – simple as that! The heel of this boot is 5’ inches from the ground so you will get adequate ankle support and protection and to top it off this is also a very flexible boot. This boot offers lots of traction and durability to protect you against slipping hazards. We will say though, these are probably not best suited for a construction site, as they don’t come with all of the standard features you would expect to find in a classic pair of construction work boot.

In terms of traction – the Timberland Chocorua has got you covered and will give you super-like grip on ice and snow; keep in mind these boots were designed to grip in some of the most intense mountainous areas – you wont be losing your grip anytime soon.
