My go too work boot

published

I work in construction industry, and these boots are my go too boot. I have a low lace up side zip boot. Since I get the luxuries of getting new boots every 12 months I have used the same boot 3 times in a row with no intention of changing. The biggest pro for me is the side zipper, with the angled zipping it makes taking on and off the boots as easy as slip ons. Too be fair half the time I don’t even zip it up. And with that added ease, and comfit have found myself using these boots everyday all day even after work and on outtings

$200 Mongrel dress boots make noise when walking - No customer service from Mongrel

published

Purchased Mongrel riding boot to replace my 20 year old RM Williams (too expensive these days).
I have a wide foot so purchased the extra wide fitting size based on retailers advice which was they would be tight to start with but would expand over time. Since new my heel has slipped and if I wear boot socks my little toes are very sore by the end of the day.
I contacted Mongrel via their webpage contact form and have heard absolutely nothing.
Poor customer service and a very disappointed customer.

Absolutely stoked with my mongrels. Was hesitant to buy boots as I'm on my feet 8hrs+a day in a busy back and forth job but they are so comfortable and durable. Withstood a night out with my kelpie and barely any damage done. Recommend to everyone!

Finally, a comfortable boot.

published

After 22 years in the military, and 20 years working in a PNG mine, I had worn various brands of boots. Now retired on our FNQ farm, I was after a comfortable boot. I posed the question on a Fly in/Fly out social media page, and Mongrel boots was the most recommended.
So went to the local dealer and bought a pair. Definitely the most comfortable boot I have ever worn. Have recommended them to others already.

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.
Mongrel replied on 11 August, said warranty was only 6 mths. so no replacement. Cracking caused by water, frequent application of wax/dubbin recommended. I bought another pair because of extreme comfort. Mongrel offered me a free tin of their leather wax, good one.

Hi Phillip, I've received the leather wax and using it regularly. Also the Mongrel socks have solved my problem of socks disappearing into boots. So thank you.

Comfortable but doesn't last.

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

Natalie C.asked

I have a pair of non-safety zip sider boots and absolutely love them. Comfiest boots i've ever had. I'm after some boots to wear to the office and was wondering if the Riding boot/Oil Kip style boots have a similar fit/sole as the others? I dont have anywhere locally to try them on and was considering buying them online, but the toe shape is so different i'm worried they wont fit. Any help? Cheers, Nat.

Hi Natalie, thanks for your question. We're glad to hear that you love your Mongrels! The fit and last design of our riding boot is different to our work boots, but the sizing is more or less the same. I would recommend ordering the same size as your work boots, and they should fit you the best. In terms of the sole, they are constructed from the same soft but hard wearing TPU/PU as our work boots. Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks, Phillip.

Hi, do you make a narrower fitting boot or can they be made? EEE is too wide for my feet.

Hi JP, unfortunately all of our boots are the same fitting (EEE). We don't make any narrower fittings at this stage. Thanks, Phillip.

Thanks just thought I’d see. I do love the boots but thick socks in the warmer weather to fill out the width ain’t so fun. I’ll wait in Hope. Is a UK 11 any narrower than a 12?
Cheers JP
