Birkenstock is a company with a reputation for making high-quality comfortable shoes. The Harris Lace-up Boot is no exception. These shoes are extremely comfortable and have many features which provide maximum support for your feet, even when you wear them for 12 or more hours a day.
Made from real leather from Portugal, the Harris Boots are durable and have a solid construction. Our research showed that users wear them for years without needing a replacement. The high-quality heavy stitching is well done, so you can be sure they won’t start coming apart after a few months.
Now get this:
The insoles on these shoes are made in Germany, and are removable, so you can replace them with new ones if they wear out. We’ve found insoles need replacing every few years, and when that happens, you can check out these KEEN Utility K-20 Cushion Insole, which are especially handy if you have sensitive feet or knees and spend your day walking on concrete floors.
The cork footbed is also removable, and when it wears out, Birkenstock provides you with replacement footbeds like the Professional Men's Profi Birki-Clog RPL Footbed and the Professional Men's Super Birki-Clog Footbed Flat.
Guess what else:
These Harris Lace-up Boots feature a double leather upper which provides protection from the elements, and the lining is also leather. This means your foot can breathe and stay comfortable all day long. These boots also feature the typical Birkenstock lower heel position, which makes them extremely comfortable.
Apart from all that, you’ll find this pair has the typical Birkenstock deep sole as well, so you can use the boots to walk in all types of weather, even light snow.
The rear pull loop allows for easy foot entry and the round toe on these shoes adds to maximum comfort. The toe box is wide, but keep in mind that this makes the shoes unsuitable for conservative office settings.
The only other downside to these boots that we could find is the break in period is longer than usual. But our research has shown once the leather loosens up, these boots are extremely comfortable.
There are a lot of nice things being said about this model by men who’ve worn it. Michael, for instance, didn’t think they’d feel so comfortable, especially since he walks a lot to and from work. Of course, there are negative experiences as well. Michael says the leather is far from durable, since the scuffs on his pair appeared after only a couple of days.
