New Rock Boots UK

New Rock Boots UK

12/2/15
First, I would like to say, aesthetically, I am satisfied with their products. But the quality you get for the price you pay is abysmal.

I've ordered 3 products in the course of a few years, so it's unlikely I just got a lemon out of the bunch. The metal looking pieces attached to the soles always start falling off within a few months, I've had a piece break in as little as 1-2 months. The last pair of boots I bought literally broke in half after a year of use. Not a single pair I've purchased have lasted more than a year, the soles come undone at the seems.

Keep in mind I never do anything physically demanding while wearing them. I spend most of my time sitting at a desk doing work on my laptop. If you plan on wearing their boots day to day, they won't last based on my experience. If you plan on using them occasionally, such as wearing them when going out on the weekends, then you'll probably be fine. As for me, I've given up on the NewRock brand.

Outside of NewRock I typically get boots that go for around $90 to $130. Some of them only last a year as well, but at half the price it's not a major concern. GBX sells a pair of 6-ring boots at that price range. They used to have a couple better ones but they're no longer sold. There is also MadFish. If you spend some time looking around you may find some nice looking work boots, which in my experience are much better quality.

Tip for consumers: Even if your boots start falling apart after a month of use, you will have to pay for any piece that has broken off.

I can't, for the life of me, understand how people can give them 4-5 stars. They don't actually sell what you see in the photos. It's like fast-food photos, but for clothing. What you receive in the mail looks absolutely pitiful. People look stupid in their jackets. They look like they were made for kids. Maybe in the 6-12 year old range. Do yourself a favor and buy a $20 jacket in America, so you don't look life a goofball.

It's too bad really. If they charged more and sold clothing like that in the photos, they could make bank. American's aren't shy about spending $$$ on things they like. Consider American Giant, they sold a jacket for $80 that had a few month waiting list! And now there is a jacket on Kickstarter with 9 million in support that is going to sell for $150 + shipping.
