These are great boots and I'm on my third pair of Bellevilles. I used to wear the 550ST with the steel toe but for garrison duty, a protected toe it not necessary These are lighter weight and the same great Belleville quality.
Nice boots. After taking a close look after I pulled these out of the box, I was very impressed by the quality and workmanship. The stitching and materials are top notch. The only thing is the arch feels a bit low but that's probably my feet because I do have high arches. I replaced the factory sole with a set of Superfeet and haven't had a problem since.
