Very comfortable but not durable

published

I bought my mongrel boots 23 August 2019. Black zip side. As you can see in the picture, one upper has come apart from the sole along the inside. This began about 3 months ago and has now got quite bad, lets water in. That's a pity because the boots are extremely comfortable and showing very little wear apart from that fault. I think that's not good enough performance for a medium price range boot so I requested a replacement. Emailed Mongrel on 17 July but no reply yet.

Comfortable but doesn't last.

published

My boots came with a six months warranty, but the stitching came apart on the side of one boot just outside the warranty period. As an electrician, i expected them to last a little longer than 7 months.

So far so good

published

I have problems with my feet so the most comfortable boot is top priority for me. Ive had the likes of steel blue, cat, olivers etc, and was happy with them but their quality felt different after a few years and would leave me with feet, ankle, knee, back and neck problems.
I stumbled onto mongrel boots after trying on almost every boot at the store, and somehow tried these last. As soon as I tried them it gave me instant relief to my feet.
Its only been 2 weeks and they’re the most comfortable boot Ive had. So far so good.
Please don’t lose the quality like the other top brands.

Most comfortable work boot ever

published

As a Gardener/ landscaper I have had the five years of terrible boots before discovering Mongrel boots, My wife bought a pair not long after I had bought Blundstone which after 2 weeks started failing, after 3 months and $150 down the tube I bought a pair of Mongel boots with scuff cap, I have had them 5months and the inside heel has zero wear, great condition and as comfy as ASIC runners. I live in them. Could not recommend enough.
Thanks for the amazing work boot.

Fantastic boots

published

Recently bought my first pair of Mongrel work boots (high leg zipsider). Was a bit unsure buying over the Internet without trying them on first, but turns out my fears were unfounded. They fit perfectly, and are the most comfortable boots I've owned. They look great, and the quality is first class. Love that they're Aussie made by an Aussie owned company.

Most painful boots I've ever worn.

published

Bought a pair of the P series 2nd hand new, thought nothing of it until I wore them for 2 days.

Severe debillitating pain in the Achilles Heel that I've never had from any steelcaps before in life, confirmed by a Dr as tendontitis. After I inspected the boots closer i realised it's from poor design. Why are the boots curved to such a weird angle at the back? It does nothing but bring pain from unnatural position.

I don't even think I can wear these anymore after what they've done to my foot. Wouldnt recommend them to anyone.

Sturdy, comfortable and tough

published

I was issued a pair of 545030 boots for work 5 years ago and when they got a bit scuffed up they became my work around home boots, renovating and gardening. But after shamelessly abusing them, they're still holding together, haven't worn through anywhere and they are so comfortable, as you can imagine being so worn in, they are my absolute favourite 'go to' boot. I was a Blundstone fan prior to owning these Mongrels, which have outperformed the Blundstones in every way. And they're Aussie owned and made, which makes them even better.

Comfortable but lacks support.

published

Got these Mongrel boots as a replacement for some faulty Cat work boots that started to fall apart after a month from RSEA.
Choose the Mongrel as thought I would support Australian made.
Boots are comfortable but have no support in them, after a full days work feet are killing me, thought they needed to be worn in, but after a couple of months they are worse.
Wasted a couple hundred bucks and now going in the bin.

Biodegradable boots ie hydolysis

published

Have a pair of mongrel boots, evidentially the manufacture says there seven years old , they may have sat on the shelf for a while before I got them.
Only worn them several times and stored them in my bedroom cupboard with my other shoes for very occasional use
To look at them they look brand new, (mint condition) but the new looking soles peel back and the thick packing material within the heel has broken down , disintegrated on massive scale
I expected these boots to last until I’d worn them out, not the other way around
I appreciate there not new but they have had no wear and tear and little use.
They were to be a long term when needed boot

Review of my boots I purchased in 2017/18 compared to the newer boots of 2019/20

published

Boots where comfy from day 1, no wearing in blisters or discomfort.

Extreme use: has been used on firegrounds in hot coals, and active flame no melting or deforming had occurred with the boot.
Also used these boots in sub zero temperatures in the snow over winter extended use dried out leather and allowed soaking to occur.

Overall a really comfy boot from day 1 I would like to buy this exact model again but unfortunately they do not appear to make them anymore. Such a shame as I bought new r series wheat side zip boots and they are the most uncomfortable boot I have ever worn. Please bring back the previous models from 2017/18 or get rid of the hard heal strengthening material, I prefer to keep skin on my heal. Cheers Cobb.

wasted alot of money on these

published

Wish I had never wasted so much money on these. They hurt the tops of my feet BAD. Doesn’t matter how tight or loose the laces are they hurt like hell. Have NEVER had this problem with any shoe ever! Also annoys me that stones always get stuck underneath tread and always have to dig them out . With the amount of money I spent I would expect better! Not happy being in pain at work is NO FUN. Will NEVER buy this brand ever again.

On my third and fourth pair at present. Comfortable, strong and true to size. These days I buy online as there is usually a better range and by searching often a better price.

We love our Mongrels!!!!!

published

We have bought Mongrel Boots for as long as I can remember! We have always been 100% happy with the quality, price and extremely proud they are made in Australia!! Two of our boys are diesel mechanic apprentices and they have found Mongrels are the best boot to wear providing them with comfort and safety. Most of their work mates use Mongrel Boots too!! Our other two adult children and myself also have them and they are super comfortable and provide great protection. WE ARE A ’MONGREL’ FAMILY

Hi Brendan, thanks fo your enquiry. Yeah mate, our boots are a EEE fitting, so are quite accomodating for wide feet. And our half sizes are even wider! Cheers, Phillip.

Merviasked

I want to buy a pair of Mongrel elastic side boots but size 4 were very tight and size 5 were very loose. I am a woman and a standard US 7 which I thought was the same as AUS 7. Will the size 4 stretch?

Phillip C.Mongrel Boots

Hi Mervi, thanks for your question. The boots will stretch slightly as you break them in, but they shouldn't be overly tight to begin with. Are the boots you're looking at buying safety or non-safety? Thanks, Phillip.

Rob

Robasked

I want to buy a pair of Mongrel zip sided non safety boots but can only get them on line. I always wear a size 11 Blundstone boot but want to change. Can you tell me if your size 11 is exactly the same sizing as a Blundstone or do I need to go smaller. Thanking you, Rob.

1 answer
Mongrel Boots
Phillip C.Mongrel Boots

Hi Rob, thanks for your enquiry. Sizing will be much the same, although it is possible you may find a slight difference in sizing between the two brands. I would recommend starting with a size 11 first as this should be the right fit for you. Thanks, Phillip.
