Oh so comfortable
I bought my boots in September 2020 and boy are they good. I'm on my feet 8 or 9 hours a day on a concrete floor. When they're eventually worn out I'm getting another pair. Thanks hard Yakka.
Best boots eva!
$99 Bunnings. Most comfortable boots available. Just an all round great boot. Easy on and off. Wear them as casual Boots as well as for work.
Give them a miss
Shoes are comfortable. This is the only good thing about them. If you intend to wear them outside, or in a working environment, be prepared for every stone etc to get into the boot. I mean everything. Your feet end up filthy and expect to be taking your boots off to empty the contents continually. Walking in the wet, water resistance/water proofing amounts to the same as bare feet. Zero. If you require safety boots in an office environment these boots are suitable. Anything outside, forget about it. I have to now by another pair of boots.
3056 Lace snd zip boots
I feel compelled to comment on these 3056 boots. Comfortable from the onset and very easy to put on with boots laced and using zip. The mid height is good fir support but not restrictive as tall ones could be. Steel toe and water resistant. Didn’t check fit this feature though. I highly recommend these boots as comfortable safe work, garden and shed boots. Well done Yakka. Guy in Adelaide
Not Happy with these Boots
I have had many boots in my time but never had a pair that only lasted 6 Months l will never bye Hard Yakka again.
Fell apart in Weeks
I bought a pair of Hard Yakka bib and brace overalls from Australian Only. I was hoping they were going to be of similar quality to the King Gees that I lived in for some years. Sadly in less than six months the fabric has literally started to disintegrate, with the edges of the pockets threadbare and torn and holes in the knees and other quite low stress areas. I have worn them around the house in Lockdown and hardly exposed them to the level of stress that you'd expect overalls to cope with. Very disappointed.
Worst fitting pants and shorts
I was using size 32 in FXD brand fit perfect with Good stretch. Went to a store that only had hard yakka so tried on 32 and they were way too small so I got 34 which were OK fitting. Had for a couple of months now they have stretched so much but still that tight around the leg/ crouch area. Have thrown them out and will never buy again.
Descent boots for the price
HY 3056 (olive) boots lasted 17 months with 6 days a week use until wearing through the front and heels. No other issues. Sizes run a little large for thick socks (I am normally a 9 and found 8's better)
Not worth for $160, poor quality
Within 3 months started giving up stitches. I Bought it from Bunnings. Don't know for $160 why not making good quality stuff.
3056 Womens Work Boots, pretty good actually
I had a nicely worn in pair of Oliver Work Boots but then having started a new job I found that I needed black work shoes of some sort. I went to the work wear store, there was some Oliver Boots which would have been perfect but they didn't have my size in stock. I tried on a pair of the Hard Yakka boots, the size on the shelf was perfect for me, they felt comfy, they had zips on the side, the only difference is that they were more padded, lower and also heavier than the olivers (mainly because the olivers had a synthetic toe cap rather than st...eel). Anyway I needed some boots ASAP so decided to go with the Hard Yakka. Initially they were comfortable but after the first week there was a period of time where the edge of the tongue was hurting the top of my foot, mainly one. I persevered and within another week the issue went away. I should mention that I find it hard to find perfect boots, it seems like one always seems to rub on my heel or something like that. I've had these for more than a month now and apart from the initial "wearing in" I haven't had any problems which is a good sign. The zips are so handy, I would always buy work boots with zips these days. Yes sometimes I find the zips on these boots can unzip a little, but only a small amount. I think the zip retention thing could be a bit better designed...perhaps a little velcro strap like the Oliver boots tend to have could be a little more effective? In saying that they don't zip down enough to cause issue or constant adjustment and to think of it I find that it's only one boot (the right one). A huge plus for these boots is the sole, I work in a place where the floors could get very slippery and I have to say these boots seem to have the most anti slip sole compared to any shoe I have owned in the past! Unless I'm stepping on a greasy piece of food or something these just aren't slippery at all it's great.....and they seem to be nicely waterproof too (when hosing down the floors)...although I do like to coat any of my leather boots in Nikwax or Dubbin etc for extra water proofing. So yes I think I would be happy to buy these again. I work on my feet and often I also walk to and from work (about a half hour walk), these seem to be pretty good so far, for comparison when I initially wore some Volleys they were sliippery on the floors (even though it was a natural rubber sole) and my feet were sore by the time I finished work which made it a chore to walk home.
Rubbish soles on safety boots
The soles on my steel cap safety boots fell apart ie crumbled within twelve months. The retailer told me it's a common problem with polyurethane soles; not happy. Leather upper is excellent. Had my boots re-soled with car tyre tread four years ago and very happy with the result although they're now a bit heavier to move around in due to the steel radial belt but should last for many years to come jn the bush.
Don't waste your money on a product that looks great but under delivers on performance.
Worst pair of boots for construction I've owned in over 10 years. Bought less than 2 months ago and the heel has already lost it's cushion. Wouldn't recommend them. Very disappointed.

Always great quality products
I'm a long time customer, bought 3 pairs of pants and jeans from Hard Yakka online this week, and got my delivery in 2 days. Shirts, jumpers, pants, jeans, wouldn't buy any other work wear brand.
Hard Yakka Slate Zip Boot
The slate boot is the best boot I’ve worn hands down, comfortable, durable, looks good and affordable!!
4 different colour options and they go like hot cake. Good job Hard Yakka.
Hard yakka 3056 workboot
Bought the 3056 workboot which fitted perfectly after trying on at least 7 or 8 other brand boots.. I have weird shaped foot...
And after 3 months they are still as comfortable as they were brand new, but
the zipper on each boot falls down and needs pulling up at least 10 times a day, needs to be captured up the top somehow,
I’m sure it’s not just my 3056 boots that do this, so irritating feeling like yr boot wants to come off all day
