Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good so far The old model of this boot was great. I work in a machine shop and deal with a lot of oils and steel chips. The sole is only about half wore but the uppers are coming apart after 3 years. That is a great boot in my book. The new boots seem like they have a different insole that is not as comfortable as the old one. Apart from that, these are by far the best work boots I've owned, which has been quite a few. Would have been 5 stars except for the insole change.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality with some caveats Rocky boots last a very long time for me, upwards to 4 years of daily use in my past experience. I wear boots in an office environment (ironically) and go for the AlphaForce, because it is easy to put on and remove as I need and it is black and professional looking. It goes well with my slacks, but are also great outdoor footwear. I do have a problem with the comfort of the Composite Toe version of this boot specifically though, which I purchased out of safety requirements in the workshop of my workplace. This is the second one I have purchased trying to figure out what works for me, and I am glad I've gone on this "adventure" as I've learned a lot about my foot in the process. My first one was a size 9M (mens), and I discovered very quickly that it was too large for me. As the boot folds when I walk forward, the composite toe edge pushes against the top of my foot, and actually started causing some pretty serious damage as I was trying to "break in" the boots. The boots ended up breaking me. This made me evaluate my previous boots (my last pair being a cheaper brand from a low end sports outlet) which were also size 9m. While my previous pair did have a different internal size to Rocky, those too were too big upon research, and I have discovered that I am likely closer to a 8 wide... So, now I have 9M boots that I cannot use and will resell used localy... buyers remorse, I do not blame Rocky for not knowing my foot size. I then purchased 8 wides from Rocky to try, and it IS better, but the break in process has been unnecessarily difficult for me. Firstly, the back edge above the heel of the boot where the substrate ends at the length of the back created an edge which irritates my heal as I walk. I have been wearing moleskin for weeks now to help me break it in, and I have tried to smooth it out through other methods. I consider this edge to be a flaw in the boot, and I do blame Rocky for it, but in the process of dealing with all of this I discovered that I probably have developed Haglund's Deformity (and possibly Bursitis) through my many years of wearing boots that were ill fitted... this has likely exagerated the effect of the edge. Secondly, as I have worn these boots for many weeks now, the fold where the hard-toe bends into my foot has become a minor issue again, but I feel that the leather that is the actual material that is folding down and touching the top of my foot will soften over time and will be less of an issue when all is said and done. This is likely a problem with hard toed boots in general, but I wouldn't really know seeing as these are my first experiences with it. I feel this could have been mitigated better by Rocky if they had tapered the hard toe box up a bit, or shaped the edge different, in a way that promotes the leather to fold in a way that does not invade the foot so aggressively. Thirdly, the shoe strings have a black outside shell, but the core is neon-colorful. Why? This is such a weird choice by Rocky... and only brings unnecessary attention and color to the laces through normal tightening... Fourthly, my toe next to the pinky to on my right foot has begun to rub unpleasantly against the top-side of the toe box... I've avoided blisters so far, but this one may be what stops me from keeping these boots. I will evaluate my arch to see if my foot is improperly flat, and will compensate as needed with an arch lining or Plantar Fasciitis compression foot sleeves to see if it helps, but if this keeps rubbing the way it is, I will have to pursue other brands of hard-toed boots... or abandon hard toes entirely. Overall, I give 4 stars because the boot liner on the bottom is comfortable and provides good support, and the overall quality is as solid as I expected. The fact that I have fitting issues is my own fault, but I'm getting tired shelling out a hundred dollars for each trial of a boot (over such a short period of time) that I know will last many, many years. I'm afraid to try 8.5 wides because of my experience with how badly the 9s hurt the top of my foot (it felt like it was breaking my toes), and I feel that it would be too large overall anyways. Buyers remorse mostly, but I really am trying to make these work.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from After two weeks boot peeling off. Thought they were to be wide but with the narrow heel they are very tight. Not as comfortable as most rocky boots. Also the the rubber is coming off the front after only two weeks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable Boot This is the second pair of Rocky Alphas I purchased I do alot of activity outside with my job. They keep your feet dry and warm in cold / wet temps also the wick moisture from your feet after wearing all day and in extreme temps they are the most comfortable Boot I ever worn with an exception the liners tear after long normal use exposing the fiberglass lining. I will purchase again even when liners tear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them! I am a correctional officer in Wisconsin who is constantly on his feet and have had a pair of these boots for a little over 1.5 year and they are just now getting somewhat wore out (but should last another 6 months to a year) so I am ordering my second pair before they decide to discontinue them for some odd reason. These boots are very comfortable for even 16 hour shifts, are warm with a decent pair of socks (even outside all day in the 'lovely' Wisconsin winters), are actually waterproof as they claim (I can stomp through puddles and snow all day and my feet stay dry), and they take a nice shine and look great all around. I highly recommend these boots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots so far I have had these 2 months and wear them 5 days a week for 10 or more hours. They are comfortable, easy to get on and off, durable and seem to be well put together. For my foot type I added a bit more cushioning of an insole. Great boot and barring anything odd happening over time I'd buy these again.
