    Who uses them and are they worth the money?

    Hi John,

    I bought a pair last year and they were pretty good. I have a narrow foot and they were to wide and sloppy especially in the toe, for me. But that's just me. I went back to columbia hiking boots.

    I was wondering the same thing, and I'm not trying to hijack the post but if I can ask. What is suppose to make these shoes so special for us lawn boys?

    I bought the low profile lawn grips - very comfortable, grips the best on wet grass surfaces of any footwear I have had, grips well on wet, smooth concrete.
    The only drawback, aside from the price, is the shoe is wide on my foot. This feels odd but does not effect performance.

    Been wearing them for three years. It takes about 3 to 4 hours to brake them in
    very good traction and they last about 9 months to a year. A very comfortable work shoe.

    Bought a pair last season and enjoyed the comfort...up to the day they started fallin apart. Seams are glued and began coming apart and letting moisture in.
    I liked them, too bad. I go bare foot now

    Great boots ! They are comfortable and not to heavy like regular boots with steel toes. Well worth the money.

    I just bought a pair today at a Stihl dealer. I noticed what looked like shoe boxes but had Sthihl on the box. When I went to look it was lawngrips shoes but they have Stihl sown on the side. I guess Stihl thought they wanted a little piece of the pie.
