A pair of work boots that are comfortable and also protect the feet from the job site hazards is more of a necessity than an option for the workmen. These job site hazards can range from skidding and fracturing your joints, to the dreaded disease of Plantar Fasciitis that causes inflammation in the tissues connecting the heel bone to the toes. So, I found the most natural way, which is to keep these hazards at bay is to invest in a pair of quality boots, and Timberland PRO Men’s 6″ Pit Boss Steel-Toe can come in handy in that regard.
I have realized that this brand has been manufacturing work-ready boots since way back in 1918 and is now a name that needs no introduction in the commercial footwear sector. So, how far does the Timberland Pit Boss live up to this reputation? Let’s get into the review and find out.
- Comfort: Being extremely comfortable, you can wear it any time
- Style: Though, this is quite hard, but this is quite classy and stylish
- Durability: Being made with high-quality material, this seems quite long-lasting
What is wrong with the product?
Features to know
Timberland has pulled no stops in enhancing the product with all the most excellent features that the brand is known for. With all the features that the boot has, the following are the five that deserve mention.
1. The durability factor
Let’s face it: replacing work boots too often can burn a hole in your pocket. So, you surely look for durability when choosing a shoe for the work environment, and I do, too, which is why I can tell you that longevity is not something you need to worry about with Pit Boss. It has rugged, sturdy leather uppers and an abrasion-resistant rubber sole.
Timberland PRO assesses the unmet needs of those who work in the most demanding environments. It also develops solutions, which offer ultimate comfort, durability & protection, and even all day long from work boots & shoes to anti-fatigue insoles.
I would admit that these boots take longer to break in than the other models of the brand, but once they do, there’s no looking back. Yes, you will have to wear it for quite a few days, but after that, it’s long-term comfort. Nursing blisters after coming back home or sitting at home being affected by inflammation in the feet are not the things you will have to worry about when you wear Timberland PRO Men’s 6″ Pit Boss Steel-Toe.
Every individual wants their shoe to be firm, and that is why this shoe has gained massive popularity. Reliable traction is one of the fantastic and durability factors that is ideal too.
I would give it good points for the strength features too. After all, the waterproof leather body helps keep the feet dry. The sole is waterproof, and that makes sure you do not slip on something. It also comes with a high rating for electrical hazards, and so, you are even safe from open circuits.
6. Water Resistance
These particular work boots are not waterproof, and it is suggested before wearing that you apply a water-resistant application to maintain leather quality.
You might think that the boots that look as tough as the Pit Boss cannot have any ease factor attached to it, but the brand proves you wrong. These are work boots, and Timberland has not forgotten that.
It is more extensive than the usual safety toe and comes with an internal soft, removable sock liner that keeps the blisters and Plantar Fasciitis at bay. The Timberland Pitboss work boots are constructed with Nubuck leather, polyurethane midsole, Cambrelle fabric lining, nylon shock diffusion plate, and a heat resistant rubber.
The soles need a special mention in the features because these are slip, oil, and abrasion-resistant. The use of Goodyear welt construction throughout the body of the boots further earns it brownie points. As this is made with high quality material, you will not have to worry about the soles.
The features that I have mentioned before taking care of the comfort factor effectively. First, there is the extra-wide steel toe that makes for roomy interiors. Secondly, there’s the soft removable sock liner to provide extra cushioning. To add to that, these boots are not as heavy as work boots usually are because a lightweight steel toe has replaced the traditional steel toe.
Taking into account all the pros and cons, I would say that Timberland PRO Pit Boss is one of the boots that feel like a much-needed refreshment from the usual steel toe boots that people are used to wearing. If you want a rugged work boot that does the job of protecting your feet and keeping you comfortable for long hours, then this product will not disappoint you. So, all in all, I would certainly recommend you all to give these work boots a try.
