Brand new, one day at work, got home, took them off and smelled mildew strongly. My feet now have athletes foot. Tried everything to battle the odor but failed. I have very good hygiene and when I took my boots off a very strong odor of mold bursted out, so I bought foot powder deodorant and several different foot care products, but nothing works. I was embarrassed when I was visiting a friend. I had to take my boots off to enter his home, that was the last straw. I threw them in the garbage. I… Full review
Fourth pair, model Jason. First blew a side seam within a couple of weeks. Replaced by Wal-Mart. The replacement boots as well as the following two pairs all failed with the soles splitting side to side clear through to the body. These failed within two to three months. Cost vs value is not worth the trip to Wal-Mart. Invest your money in any other product. At 56 I can easily out work this trash. Save your money and buy a real pair of boots. These are no bargain. Total garbage! Full review
Great boots, have not had any problems with them. I have not had a problem with my camo hollow points, fit great right out of box. Bought at Walmart for $49.95 four years ago. Use them for hunting and outside work in Michigan winters. Feet stay warm but can get damp sometimes, No boot or shoe is completely waterproof, even my Rocky boots I wear for work (letter carrier). I like these boots a lot, wish I could find more. Full review
Worst boot I ever bought. Would never buy any footwear from Walmart again. First pair of Survivors I bought 28 years ago, came apart within weeks; store gave me a new pair and I had till just a bit ago. Had them resoled two times over the years. I usually buy Chippewa or Rocky $150 and up — get what you pay for. These Hermans I bought at Walmart were $75 about three years ago, thought they would be good. They were touted as a hunting boot, not a work boot as customer service stated, like I used… Full review
These are the worst boots ever. I paid top dollar for a pair and went to a junkyard to pull an engine. Fell apart and had to strap wires and seat belt parts to hold it together. With the straps holding it together, they have held up for a year now. Junkyard guy was so amused at my boots he gave me the old straps to keep my Frankenstein shoes together. I am stubborn and want my money out of these boots. I did that in less than an hour. The Japanese parts are lasting much longer. Horrible fit Terrible… Full review
