Review of the Timberland white ledge mid waterproof work boot

Pros:

The Timberland White ledge can be considered as a 2 in 1 work boot most suited for hiking activities and harsh working conditions. They are rather safe work boots with very good traction but what is most outstanding is its increased waterproofing mechanism. Furthermore, it is often perceived that most work boots are waterproofed due to their use of full grained leather. Full grained leather however, is considered to be a water repelling material. Most work boots are however susceptible to water and moisture entry at the seam joints, but this is not the case with the Timberland White Ledge work boots. These White ledges are seam sealed at the joints and as such, improve its waterproofing characteristics. The Timberland White ledge is also equipped with an anti-debris tongue which is a very important safety feature for your feet whether hiking or working.

Cons:

Unfortunately, this work boot is not equipped with a safety toe which can be hazardous as it relates to the working environs. It should also be noted that these boots are not fully waterproofed. If the need is for a 100 % fully waterproof work boot, it is best to consider a Muck work boot or rubber work typed boots rather than leather.
