They have lasted
Though the acetone can be tough on toes and these could use a little stronger fabric over the toes, they have lasted a long time.  I prefer Iron Age after having worn these, over other brands I have worn in the past.  They are very comfortable compared to other work boots I've worn.

Great boots but bad for slips
These boots are super comfortable during my 10hr shifts as a machinist. So far they are holding up great against chips and abrasions, however they are not slip resist at all. I have to climb into some of the machines I run and if the stairs are even a little wet my feet will want to come out from underneath me. The same goes if there is coolant on the shop floor I'll start sliding across the bay.. everything else about these boots I love but the slip resistance is seriously lacking

Started Out Great
"They started out great, but became unhappy with them with full grain leather retaining dust.  Stitching has started to come apart near left big toe.  Wish the whole shoe was made of the scuff tough hi-abrasion material to repel dust.  I also would like the collar to be more padded."

Best I've Owned - Benchmark for All Other Work Boots
"First one lasted 2-1/2 years...on my second pair now.  These have been the best steel toe work boots I've ever owned.  I work as an emergency roadside field supervisor in Phoenix and because of how long these have held up makes them the benchmark for all other boots."
