This is a heavy, well-made, sturdy, work boot. It runs narrow, I had to get 4E when I usually wear standard width. The composite toe helps keep the weight down a little, but it still substantial. The sole has aggressive tread, which is great for the mud, but picks up a lot of stones. I work in construction, so I have to check my soles every time I step onto a roof to avoid damaging it. The boot is warm enough for winter, but not too sweaty in the summer. In general, a very good boot.
