Kayo charcoal boots

The first make of chainsaw boots that I love as they are comfortable and durable

Not comfortable at all.

I have large feet and the problem I find when buying boots is that they're designed and shown in around a size 9. They look good at that size. That's why I ordered them. However, once scaled up to fit my flippers they loose their aesthetic and more Importantly, the functionality and comfort they would have had in a smaller size. They didn't bend or flex like I was hoping they would. Not having hooks for the laces on the upper part of the boot made it VERY difficult to tighten and loosen when putting on and taking them off. Overall I was very disappointed as I love the rest of the Arbortec gear.

Comfortable but very poor design

Boots are pretty comfortable to wear on the ground but when climbing i have found them very irritating. The low cut design means trousers roll up over the tounge, ropes and branches then get caught in the tounge and leave the lower leg unprotected. Have also found the heel is too shallow for spikes to stay in place. The gator is so tight it makes getting boots on and off a very long awkward process and will eventually tear the stitching from forcing them onto your feet, i have also broken the lining in the gator from trying to get them on now making them very uncomfortable. The soles have lasted about 3 months before they have worn away to nothing and started peeling. If you only want these boots to stand around on the ground they will do but for working and climbing i wouldn't bother.

looks good

very comfy.good for tree climbing work.

Comfy all rounder

Bought these boots for when I teach a couple days a week and had been wearing non protective boots the rest of the time as I only ever climb on site.
As soon as I put the Kayos on I was impressed. I so wanted to not like them so I could keep wearing my other boots that I love so much but the Kayos are now my go to boots for everything.
I've had mine for about 7 months and I have zero complaints, still in fantastic condition but I'm going to have to buy a spare pair because if anything happens to these I'll be incredibly upset
