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.
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.
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.
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.
Hard yakka work boots
These boot are self explanatory .. NEVER BEEN used. The 1st time on .!!!!
The sole just fell apart ...
Not happy about the quality and i won't be buying this product again .. you think you're getting something good but NO ...
Plzz explain ?
Give them the boot!
Got the boots out of the wardrobe this morning and they fell to bits before the day was half way through.
Tag says "Made in China" which says a lot!
Good old Aussie made Rossi boots for me! I have worn them around China and Russia without a problem - even pointing out to a tour guide how good Australian made products were when his footwear was soaked from the wet weather.
Thought this Australian company would also produce good gear bit bitterly disappointed.
Might have to take to Standards Authority! Or was the tag just a con?
Very poor quality
I only wear oliver boot and will definitely be going back, not even 6 months and my $170 boots are falling apart and to make it worse my work isn't hard on your boots. Avoid hard yakka save your money!
- Online Store
I bought 4 sets of overalls with reflective tape in 2016 and had no issues. Bought another 4 sets in October 2018 and found one had a faulty button. Jumped through some hoops(sent pictures) and got it replaced without any real issue. I didn't realise it but I had 2 with faulty buttons. I have been in touch by email a number of times since the start of December about the second one, with only 1 reply from them apologising for the lack of action. Even their 1800 number doesn't get answered.
Don't think I will be getting Hard Yakka again.
Edit: Finally I received resolution to this in February.
Good gear let down by crappy after sales service.
I have bought about 5 pairs of their work pants with the built in kneepad pockets, and purchased their knee pads and when i kneel down the knee pad slides down the inside and my knees are on the ground again. The whole pant leg slides inward with or without the knee pad. I brought this up with the shop inbought it from and 3 months later still no answer.
I purchased 3 pairs of the workpants, one had a different colour inside the waistband and has shrunk to the point they can no longer be worn. Not happy one wash and they will have to go in the bin - not happy! Have always bought hard yakka but won't in the future. What's with the Made in Bangladesh - really??
Poor Product quality.
I purchased 2 pairs of legend work pants, material on the knee protectors is to much unless you have knees the size of you head, and 82R sizing would be good if I was 6ft 2, not happy with the look or quality, "Made in Bangladesh" need I say more. NEVER AGAIN and would NOT recommend to anyone.
Soft Yakka!! Arrogant Company!
Work pants holed and ripped after three days normal wear!! Quality is poor! Try to get a fair resolution from the customer service online store...child birth was easier! They make you jump through hoops, i had to fight for a refund through Paypal in the end as Hard Yakka seem to think they are above the law when it comes to consumers... Never again, iconic Australian brand is now rubbish!
