Updated: Jul 18, 2020

If you are considering a water proof, oil, heat and slip resistant Slip On Work Boot, Timberland PRO Men's Helix Wellington Waterproof Steel Toe Work Boot is worth your attention. This pair meets the demands of protecting your feet from injury and the weather while improving your comfort and balance in the work place.

Timberland PRO Men's Helix Wellington has been around since 2012 and continues to satisfy workers' needs with less 20 percent of all buyers reporting a less than three star satisfaction on Amazon.

Design and Performance

Outsole design of Timberland PRO Men's Helix Wellington Waterproof Steel Toe Work Boot

The boot design incorporates anti-fatigue technology for shock absorption with a rubber sole. This ensures you have the comfort you need standing long hours while giving your feet great insulation from electricity. The rubber sole gives good traction on most surfaces including mud and snow. It includes a ladder grip design in its outer sole to keep you from slipping of ladder steps.

They hold well against water and keep your feet and socks warm and dry so long as the water level does not get high enough to drip in from the top end of the boots. They will need some treatment with time to ensure the water proof property is preserved the entire life span of the boot.

On the average, you can expect above 1 year of excellent service from this product with most owners of the pair agreeing to replacing it with same product due to the high comfort it brings.

The break in period is relatively short and you would usually have zero need of additional insoles to achieve comfort except if you have got a special feet shape.

In comparison to the Timberland PRO Men's 8" Rigmaster XT Steel-Toe Waterproof Work Boot, that comes with a synthetic sole, the Helix Wellington Waterproof makes life a lot easier if you have to take off your Work Boots at intervals during work. It eliminates the stress of making and loosing boot laces and still establishes good snugness on your feet when you choose the right size.
