I've got flat feet and I added Superfeet Green insoles and these boots have been a Godsend. Excellent arch support and stability. Comfortable bouncy soles. My planar fasciitis no longer gives me problems during the work day. These are the most comfortable boots I've ever had. Keep in mind they do run very large. I had to exchange the first pair I had for the right size. No complaints after that.
Best boots I've bought so far. I'm in construction and I need a durable work boot. Even though these are the non steel toe version they offer me enough toe protection without the heat dissipation of a steel toe. Very comfortable as well.
This is the second pair of Belleville 340 boots I have bought. I got over two years of use our of the first pair. I wore them daily. For the quality, they are inexpensive when compared to other boots (Danners, Wolverines, Lowas) with the same features, where you are likely to spend close to $300.
I've been in the Army for 3 years now in infantry. My feet have always given me problems. I've tried several different brands such as Rocky, Wellco, and Altama but still have achy feet by the end of the day. I tried on a pair of these Bellviews on recommendations of friends and the aches went away. They really got the formula down. Thanks Bellview for making these boots.
these boots are pretty standard. nothing really special like some of the other reviewers say. this is a basic boot that has minimal padding. the vibram sole is great. i wont buy any boot without a vibram sole. other soles are just junk but dont expect miracles from these boots
Stick with the sizing guidelines on these and you'll have a pair of sweet boots. I read that these were comfortable but I wasn't expecting them to be this good (I know this sounds like an ad). They really do feel like sneakers when you put them on. This is the first pair of boots that didn't require a couple weeks to break in properly. These were just like my Nikes, they were broken in by lunchtime. Amazing!
I rate them 5 stars. Break in was 2-3 days. Definitely comfortable. The only downside is the weight. These boots are heavy. Just keep in mind if you wear a 12 you need to order an 11 or 11.5 if you want them to fit.
