Shorter, stiffer, heavier

stanley boot comparison

The Stanley waterproof steel-toed work boots that the Amazon Vine Program sent me to review arrived this morning.

Here’s a side-by-side comparison with the Bates tactical boots I’ve worn almost daily and on all motorcycle rides for the past few years. The Stanley boots are about two inches shorter, but still provide plenty of ankle protection.

They’re heavier and stiffer. They also don’t have side zippers, making them a little more of a struggle to put on.

But, boy, are they impressive in their bulk and apparent sturdiness. They make me feel like I could kick a hole in a brick wall. Almost.
