Ever wondered why tech products fail so frequently? No, me neither

Bokt theory doesn't seem to hold true when it comes to steel toed safety boots.

It seems that price doesn't have any correlation to longevity.

$70CAD boots by Workload (Walmart brand) vs $70CAD Kodiak boots vs $160CAD boots by Dickies...

All lasted 1 year before the soles started to separate from the boot.

The difference? The cheaper boots felt like workboots (stiff and heavy) and the Dickies felt like a pair of trainers and weighed nothing at all due to the use of a composite plate footsole instead of steel.

We're the Dickies twice as comfortable to justify twice the price? I'm not convinced.
