Style on the job site

My boss gave our team an allowance for work boots on the construction site. I work for a solar installer, so these needed to be electrically insulated and have grippy soles for walking on roofs. We carry heavy equipment, so steel toe was a big plus.
I chose these boots first based on those features that make it great on a job site, and second I wanted a pair of leather work boots that could double as casual wear after work. These Chippewas were the best solution, since they are conservative and stylish, made in the USA, and are pretty affordable when on sale. They aren't too heavy for being steel toe, and I plan on putting a lot of time and effort into care and maintenance on these to help them last.
Cons would be the difficulty in lacing and unlacing, which takes me some time to do with the upper lugs, and I found these ran a full size too large. Normally I'm an 11.5 in New Balance sneakers.
Owned them for only a week, but I'm extremely satisfied.
