These are quite possibly the most comfortable shoes I have ever tried on. For a long time now I have been wearing fairly cheap shoes (shoes are shoes), but liked the black Sergeants so much that I decided to splurge on them. I wore them out of the store the day that I bought them, and walked around in them all day. No blisters, no foot pain, NOTHING. I liked them so much that a week later I went back and bought the brown ones.

These boots are stylish enough that they can dress up quite nicely, and rugged enough that they've served me well in the cold, cold Pennsylvania winter. I waterproofed both pairs with a silicone spray, and my feet have stayed dry and toasty warm even with nearly a foot of snow on the ground. Not to mention the traction that the waffle-stomper style sole gives!

Normally, I wear plain old jeans, a t-shirt, and a hoodie with these boots, and they complete the look quite well. With a classy pair of slacks and a sweater or a lacy top, they dress up just fine. I wear these basically everywhere. To work, out with friends, shopping around town. They've become a staple in my wardrobe. When they wear out (which I don't expect to be anytime soon!) I'll probably just replace them with the same style if it's still available.

    Comments about Verdict:

    I wear these boots almost everyday, they don't feel like a boot. Lightweight, durable, waterproof. I work in them and hangout with them, had them for 8 years. It's now time to buy another pair. The heels are getting worn. But upper part still good because I polish them from time to time. Not good for deep snow it's an ankle boot.

      Comments about Verdict:

      Seriously the best boots on the market. I've had the Verdict Boots for almost 10 years in both black and brown. They are my everyday boot. I wear them for work, for play, at church and to the city dump. I wear them EVERYWHERE!

      I've never waterproofed them and they keep my feet 100% dry in the rain. I don't worry about parking in puddles or walking in wet high grass, these boots perform. I get compliments on the looks of the boots almost weekly and recommend them all of the time. My current pair of black are starting to wear out and you can bet I'll be getting my fourth pair very soon.

      If you are looking at these boots, you need to get them. Trust me, you won't be disappointed.

        I am purchasing these boots for the second time. I bought my first pair in October 2011. For the past five years, they were worn nearly every week for outdoor projects around the house. They've been in heavy rain, mud and snow, and they held up great. They are comfortable, and the waterproofing really works. After five years of hard wear, they are just starting to leak a little along the front sole; otherwise, I still wouldn't be replacing them.

              Yes, this is the Sergeants - Verdict boot. The company dropped the 'Sergeants' part of the name, but it's still the same classic waterproof boot.

              They are very similar brown colors. The CDB may be a shade or two different brown than the DKBN color, but they are close.

              A:

              For the Verdict, you should be able to use a standard round work boot lace for a 6" work boot. Many stores should carry that type of lace, I have found them at Target, and Amazon.com carries a wide variety of replacement laces.

              The Verdict is a more classic style of boot, it does not have a Memory Foam insole, but it is nicely supportive and comfortable. The similar Segment boots have Memory Foam insoles.

              The Verdict boot is waterproof and durable with a durable lug rubber outsole. I'd recommend them for use in snow or rain, though they are not insulated. The Rawling - Dorson boot is a similar look that is insulated and waterproof.

              The Verdict boot does not have a steel or composite safety toe. It is a soft toe waterproof work-style boot. There are steel toe versions of this same boot design available, like the Foreman - Concore.

              The Verdict has a high traction rubber lug traction outsole. It does not have a tested Slip Resistant outsole if you require that type of outsole for use in a workplace. There are some similar boots available in the Work category with the slip resistant outsole, like the Roarke ST and Verto SR models.
