At the time of writing this Tough Test I’ve been wearing the boots for 2 weeks, and, if anything, they have only gotten more comfortable and are still looking amazing. If the first 2 weeks is anything to go by these boots are going to last well.DeWALT has gone with its PROComfort system on the AKRON, designed with three innovative cushioning and support layers to provide ultimate comfort for those who are on their feet for long periods of time.

I pulled out the grinder with the cutting disc and covered the boot in a barrage of sparking metal fragments. The heat from cutting so close to the boot (5cm-10cm) was substantial and would have burnt or melted an inferior boot. The DeWALT AKRON boots took the metal-cutting test in their stride with amazing results. As I was cutting on a slab with a thin layer of water covering its surface, we were working in and around high-slip areas and on a slippery surface. The non-slip outer sole didn’t feel like slipping at all, not at any stage. The AKRON has been designed for a wider foot and I could feel the absorption, comfort and support from the dual-density insole and PROComfort system. But I figured some testing conditions would be a better way to really get a feel for the boot. First I tried the boot in several crouching positions. Tradies can spend long hours crouching to complete tasks like measuring, finishing skirts, fitting pipes or fixing cables. I’ve personally owned boots that were amazing when walking or standing, but performed horribly when the crouching or requiring flexibility through the leather or outer sole. The DeWALT AKRON boot performed exceptionally in this crouching test, as they did climbing scaffolding and walking long distances.
