Awesome shoe. Best in brand. Very comfortable and stylish. It doesnt look in color as displayed in Amzon. Instead of mud brown it actually looks ash color. The cushion at heel end /hinfoot is very nice. Gives u a premium feel.
In my case the employer provides the safety shoes annually. Very long back, they used to provide Bata make. But from last many years, they are going on lowest offer of predefined spec basis. Every year we are getting a different make and not all makes are comfortable. The last but one is of Jaypee make ( low cut stepper) with fiber cap. It was OK. But the current one is problematic. Many senior employees of above 40 years are unable to wear the above shoes, as they are unable to walk required distances due to pain at various locations , surprisingly even at knees also. In view of the above, I started looking for other options. During this process I came across the specs of the following. Bata Endura Allen Cooper AC 1156 Allen Cooper AC-1265 (FRP Toe Cap) Hillson Nucleus liberty Warrior
However based on user reviews, I have purchased Allen Cooper AC 1156 , that too from "Cloudtail" based on user observations. To my surprise, they are very heavy [UK 8 size are weighing 1200gms (net) Hence they are not light weight]. Still I decided not to return. Accordingly, after wearing them, I felt they are very comfortable from the day one. There was no pain to any part of body , even after wearing 12 hrs a day. Further upper most lace holder is slip on type, very useful for quick removal and wearring like at some puja etc. The spacious design, cushion and higher flexibility (in addition my own trick of selecting one no higher size than normal e.g. my normal shoes size is 7 but I always opt for 8 based on my past experience) may be delivering the compfort compared to my experience with other shoes. Though the Jaypee stepper low cut is only 850 gms, but it is not as compfortable. Light weight safety shoes with net weight of less than 600 gms are available but cost is around 10k.
Update: used for more than one month (8 to 12 hours per day) still they are at least as compfortable as day one ( generally there will be comfort relevant problems with new shoes, hence this feedback may not be needed) and so far they are without any problem.
Another comfort is that the separate lace holders (with fine finish edges, instead of rough holes) allow the lace smoothly glide through them making the shoe to expand effortlessly to put on or remove the shoe from foot .
But as per my colleague's review I have ordered. Seems loooks good and what I have seen in photo same has been received. There is no change in colour.
One more thing I would like to add is received one pair of socks of same brand "Allen Cooper" worth RS. 100. During online purchase I have not seen such things and also not mentioned while this order from Amazon.
They offer comfort & nice fit. Package was received as shown in the pic here, I guess there might be heavy ordering going on during the sale. Shoes are good & durable to withstand 1.5 years of rough usage.
The product is well built and it can last for years.. only downside is the metal placed in front of shoes are not placed properly...its fine in left shoe and slight misalignment in the right one... it's not a big deal breaker though...yet it sometimes irritates...
I received a product whose upper surface was abrazed. Being a safety shoe I ignored it as built was solid and look does not matter. However, I did felt as if I received somebody else's returned product.
I purchased according to my normal shoe size. I purchased it during the offer and it showed INR 1723. After the offer it is showing 1599 only. So, don't but if the price is more than 1599. Shoe is comfort and quality is very good. I have not faced any problem with that so far.. If u are working in sites, without any hesitation you can go for it. I gave 4 stars because of the high price.
Good comfortable and relatively lightweight safety shoes. But my selection of no. 8 as per the size chart given caused some issues that no. 9 was the apt one for me. So pick next size to the size chart will be desirable.
