I've been wearing these scarcely one month and already they're just about in tatters. One of the soles is ready to start flapping in the breeze any day now, there's splitting along a number of the seams and they've been prone to nagging sogginess from the first day I strapped them on. To call them "heavy duty" (quoted from the first sentence of the item description) is a pretty athletic leap of the imagination. They aren't even trying to be waterproof and the outer construction is just shamelfully bad. The work I do is moderately high on the heavy duty scale, and these boots didn't even come close to keeping up.
I can't condemn them as utterly useless, though. If the work you do is light duty and performed exclusively on dry ground, they probably are adequate. The steel toe is never obtrusive and has saved me from crushed pigs on more than one ocassion. Just the same, though, I wouldn't buy these again and I don't intend to buy anything made by this brand in the future.
description did not mention that these boots had steel toes. i was looking for a work boot with no steel toe.
there comfortable and i recommend them to any body that needs a pair of work boots just because there 30.00 doesn't mean there a bad pair of boots i love them
I also was looking for a work boot with no steel toe as I have to pass through a metal detector on average six times a day and the description leads to believe there isn't steel toes. But other than that these boots seem to be a great deal and I like the style.
These seem like a decent pair of work boots for what they are.
Although I did not test them, there is nothing on the boots/tags/box indicating that these boots are waterproof. The description for them on the website says that they are...
I returned them since I didn't feel like waiting till my feet got wet and cold before I knew whether the website was more correct than the product itself.
I bought a pair of Brahma Challenger boots in February, 2014. Admittedly, they were relatively inexpensive when it comes to "work" boots but I have never had a pair of boots (that are described as work boots) disintegrate so rapidly. They were not worn daily, they had limited exposure to outside elements, and were not used in any type of serious construction or work scenario. I was putting an addition on my house and primarily did interior work since I bought the boots. The actual boot is separating from the soles at the toes, at the heel, and on both sides at a seam. Holes wore thru the toes in record time. They were fairly comfortable at first, but after three months I had to put Dr. Scholls inserts into them because my feet literally began to hurt. It seemed as though the entire boot went into a self-destruct mode, and have become unwearable in less than four months.
Where thick socks still toes cold.rained today on top of melting snow I figured great my feet will stay dry (wrong)right foot more then left.i like brahma cuz not expensive but don't last bout 2to3 weeks.
I bought these boots for my husband to use for work. We bought one pair about a month ago and the glue around the heel of the sole did not hold. It started to come apart so we decided that it was a fluke and bought another pair. He hasn't worn them for 2 hours and the sole of his boot is coming off on the side. We will not be buying another pair of these.
I had my boots for less than four months. The back split out above the heel. I'm used to having my boots last four or five years, not four months and I don't buy expensive boots.
90% of the time I wore them inside in a store environment.
These boots are great if you want to be a hipster or whatever, but if you do the slightest amount of work go buy something good. I've owned 2 pairs of these boots. Day one of the first pair, the toe area got all scratch up almost down to metal. They weren;t comfortable either. Next, a few days later, the strings ripped. A week or so later, the soles started to come apart and seems separated. Pair 2 is just starting to have the strings rip and they aren't waterproof at all. Went out and bought a good pair of Wolverines that should last. Most of these boot's lives were spent just walking and driving, no real hard work.
Yesterday I purchased a Brahma boots from a Walmart store. I do industrial cleaning . The boots says "oil and slip resistant " WRONG. My co-worker had to save my life last night few hours after we started working and I found myself several times almost on the floor. I will NOT recommend these shoes or boots to anyone.
This boot looked good and had a steel toe light weight. I though it would be just what I needed to work around my place in. Well that didn't last long after 4 months the seams coming loose and not the whole sole is coming apart from the boot it self. If I had my receipt I would take them back it was as waste of my money on these. The tag on the boot if truly false information. BEWARE of this boot.
Work at an office at a construction site, don't have to put stain on shoes. Needed steel toe's for compliance. Five months and about 10 miles clocked on them and the heels started to separate from the soles. And the laces broke and had to be replaced. Just bought a different pair today. Would not recommend.
