They list these as just "Engineer Boots" but obviously they make a few, these are the 2990's for reference. I own these and also the 968's (the American ones!). If you live in the US, as I do, this is one of the few ways to get your hands on the 2990's (all Heritage collection boots are American made with American leather).

The boots I received were not Adtec, but Ridetec. I don't even think these things are made of leather. Ive had my real Adtec boot for five years, and love them. These are absolutely not those. The materials are cheap, and the leather feels like its almost plastic. The paper they were wrapped in was greasy from the boots being in there. Returning these ASAP.

These boots are what I expected from the reviews, I like them, I also have a black pair and wanted to mix it up with Brown. Decent quality and look good. I like the distressed look and they will go with just about anything. On sizing, I usually wear EE on boots but the EE's I ordered at first had my feet "swimming" in the boot.

So the sizing chart link was titled Women's Sizes even though it said Men's boots(LOL). Anyway, I had no idea what size to pick so I went off of what other people had reviewed. Since I wear a 9.5 US, with slightly wider feet than the average person, I went ahead and got the medium boot size since it was recommended for US 9.5-10.5 if recalled correctly.

I went online and started looking up shoes good for concrete floors. Honestly, this was my second choice. The first choice was another brand name didn’t last which cost about the same price. Even with our other buys we were spending $50.00 plus on his shoes. So we were buying cheap shoes.

These shoes are super light, and extremely comfortable! Even more comfortable than many of my regular shoes.

I dont typically write reviews but I want to help some sisters out. I had a hell of a time trying to find decent work boots and all the reviews I read on every boot I looked at were NOT helpful. So hopefully this one will be. I am a tile installer, I'm on my knees every day and put SO much wear and tear on shoes. After my last boots were pretty gross I looked high and low for a new pair and came across these puppy's. So here's my breakdown of these boots.

First off they are dr martens so they are bulky so you have to be into that look. BUT these are high quality, very comfortable, and definitely cute enough to wear outside of work. They are heavy just picking them up but not too heavy when on your foot.

These are very solid and sturdy. The soles are very thick and my initial impression is that they would be a little awkward (almost like wearing snow shoes or ski boots). But that impression was wrong. They are actually very comfortable and aside from a little extra weight (they are a little heavy), they are not awkward at all.
