"I was looking for a boot I could wear with dress slacks for work as I am in industrial sales. I need some cushion as I've had a knee replacement. I tried a couple of pairs of other brand boots on at the local DSW store and the GBX seemed to be the most comfortable, but these were not available in the store.
I ordered them an was very pleasantly surprised to not only find the sole and heel made of a soft rubber, but the extra cushion inside is almost like having an insert. They look great with "work" slacks, and work just as well with jeans. They will be just the ticket as the weather gets sloppy here in Wisconsin."
