Soooo close

I wanted an 8inch tall leather work boot with no heal and a sole that wasn't the same color as a set if fresh veneers. I think that is the lamest choice for a work boot. They're going to stain immediately so why not make them brown or black. To my surprise most boot manufacturers don't agree. When I finally stumbled upon the BLDRs I thought, finally a company that knows what it's doing. However, it wasn't all titties and beer. The boots are not made in the USA and sizes are limited to standard dimensions. No wide, no narrow, etc. That being said, the price was right and they're a good looking boot so I went for it. They arrived exactly when they said they would and it was a Sunday no less. After opening the box they were just as stunning as their pictures indicated. There were some scuff marks but nothing that a quick wipe couldn't fix. Further inspection brought the ugly color of the shoe laces to my attention. Too light and bright in color and thus were immediately swapped with the free pair of redwing laces I had just been given. I do have a slightly wide foot according to redwing but I've never known if that was a sales ploy. Well it's no sales ploy, these boots were tight. I had the correct amount of toe space so size does appear to be true to standard feet. I knew this was a possibility and I took the risk.
I put a stretcher in them and oiled them and after a week they are starting to feel better. A wide option would make them fit like a glove. The last gripe I have is frustrating and has me thinking maybe I spoke too soon and they don't know what they're doing. I don't care what reason there is but you dont go from holes for the laces then the quick hook things and then back to a hole at the top. That's just stupid! What the hell is that? Nothing you can say will make me think differently about that. Have I mentioned how mentally challenged that decision is?
Some of my problems I knew were possibilities and QLTY can't be knocked for them directly but, it's still a knock. These might not be issues for you and the boot overall is comfortable and seems to be well constructed. I would buy another pair if they enter the 21st century and make wide options, unclude better laces and use quick tie hooks for the laces all the way to the top. I'd pay $50-75 more if they made the changes above AND brought manufacturing of the boots to the USA. There is great potential here and I'd hate to see them lose my business over simple fixes. For now they are a 3 but a 5 is within arms reach.

Really soft toe

this is my second pair of boots, i got the DNVR 6 in black awesome boots, the i got this BLDR 8 great looking but a piece of advice if you ride motorcycles which is why i got them, do not get soft toe on the BLDR 8 it will push the front down from the shifter and it looks horrible like a dent, which is funny cause it did not happen in the DNVR 6 which are soft toe also, so just a piece of advise, try to reach out to the company but just crickets

Best boots I’ve ever owned

Commercial electrician and I’ve had these boots for a little under a year. The first 3 days were not the most comfortable but after that I was blown away. Literally feels like a pair of sneakers. Super comfy and lightweight. I telll everyone they should try these boots out because I’m never going back.

BLDR 8 Waterproof Boots

I was super excited when they announced that they would offer a waterproof version of the QLTY BLDR Boot, as I already own the standard version… and I finally had the chance to get them Wet/ Muddy- great fit as always and after 4 plus hours in the rain/ mud- they performed as expected.
