The Ariat Workhog Wide Square Toe is one of the odd boots on our list and we still believe that it is worthy of making the list when looking at the most comfortable work boots. This boot has also been constructed from extremely durable leather materials and will be a great investment and since there are no laces that you need to worry about, the boot will not be snagged and have the laces broken whilst you are busy working.
The shaft on this boot measures around 11 inches from the arch and if you are working outdoor, there will be no way for anything to get inside or hurt the lower part of your leg. With a boot opening of around 15 inches, this boot will allow you to stick your overall inside and this is another layer of protection and nothing will be exposed. The large opening is also great for those with wider feet and the square toe will make it more comfortable for your feet on the inside as well.
This boot also features a mesh lining on the inside and while mesh might not be ideal for keeping out water, it will allow some ventilation and keep your feet cool on the inside. Mesh does have some water evacuation properties and will eliminate the buildup of sweat on the inside. The outer sole of this boot is also quite soft and will provide excellent traction. We tried to slip with it, but it will not give in on any slippery surface.
The addition of the ATS technology in the shank will give you decent stability and support. This technology is only used by Ariat in their top boots and this boot certainly ranks among one of their best choices yet. The inner sole is also really comfortable and molds to the shape of your feet, which will make it perfect for those suffering from pronation and supination in the feet.
For the value and the comfort, this boot is not that expensive. You should also keep in mind that the brand is not yet as established as many of the other top companies and for now this can be seen as a diamond in the rough or hidden gem. We highly recommend this boot for the value and you will be getting great durability and comfort if you do decide to make the investment.
