Don't buy any thing online. After your purchase take them to work (in the box not on feet) and walk through the metal detector, because some say "our boots are metal detector friendly" and they are not. After that test then if you like the look and feel of them then you wear them to work. Just my experience with the boot industry and not so friendly metal detector. Our's (metal detector) is a bit moody at times, I think, because some days it will go off on some thing and then the next time it won't on same item. Wierd huh???
