Utility linemen will appreciate the extra ankle support and protection these leather boots provide. Made from waterproof material, soggy and wet surfaces are no problem.

While other heavy-duty boots might need a few days for breaking in, a lot of customers have reported that the Stanley Boots Wellington Dropper ST seem to have been molded specially for their feet; they are a pleasure to walk and work in.

Basically, everything you would want in a work boot seems to have been thought of by the company. The Stanley work boots are light, breathable, and have just the right amount of insulation needed to keep your toes all right during cold temperatures.

Disadvantages

While the build is good and comfortable, some linemen have reported that the “extra” ankle support still seems to lack, especially on uneven ground. Some buyers have also reported that they find the shank a little too wide, but that there are no adjustments anywhere to tighten that part.

Some buyers have also provided feedback that the boots are too loose around their calves, so these boots might not be a good fit for those who have skinny legs.

Since these boots are pull-up and not lace-up, this might not be the preference of some people who still prefer lacing up their boots.

Verdict

Overall, the Stanley Men’s Dropper Steel Toe work boots are a gift from the gods for those who need them the most. Soft on the inside, but tough outside, these comfortable and durable leather boots are the epitome of what it takes to be the best man for the job.

Though there are a few negative reviews when it comes to the fit and extra support for the ankles, the positive reviews are overflowing. Even those who have given some critical reviews have also claimed that the boots look great and might work well for others who have different working conditions.
