Add a Review Stealth Force 8.0 Leather SZ CT CP WPi

I was very nervous about buying these having read some of the reviews - in fact I don't think i have ever bought any footwear without trying them on before, but the no quibble returns was my fallback.Share
I'm a motorsport rescue / medic which means long days in confined spaces such as ambulances / rescue vehicles sitting around - then if there is a shout, we can be walking through mud / water and having to deal with things like fire, fuel and oil. Our footwear needs to be comfortable, flexible and extremely tough.
There was a lot of talk in review about a seam and not being great comfort wise - and as someone with an office job during the week, i don't really have the opportunity to wear these in.
The first time i wore them i was surprised how comfortable they were - no idea where this seam is meant to be that uncomfortable. I have quite wide feet and am slightly flatfooted, which can make boots quite uncomfortable. These fitted perfectly. In fact probably the most comfortable shoes i have worn. They have a trainer like feel on the inside - with a very reassuring tight feel - but not the walking boot feel where you feel you foot and ankle are locked down. They are very flexible - and after 12 hour shifts feet feel fine. I have yet to take them off and do the "ahhh that's better" typhoon moment.
So far waterproof has been fine - and no sweat either. As for weight - they are just right - you can feel you have a sturdy pair of boots on.
Overall - very happy - nothing bad to say - solid, comfortable, flexible... a sturdy pair of boots that don't feel like your wearing boots.
