It’s only natural for you to want to take the path of least resistance, especially when it comes to putting on your everyday work boots. I mean, how much time does one actually spend their life on lacing up and taking off their work boots every day? 40 Seconds, maybe more? That’s a lot of time when you multiply that by everyday for the rest of your life!
Let us show you the most comfortable pull on work boots and let you get some of that time back.
Best Short Slip On Boots

Although we wouldn’t necessarily recommend this boot for heavy-duty work, we would still consider this a work boot. This great looking Chelsea-style boot is great for light-duty work that you need to have good looking boots.
Timberland Pro Nashoba Safety Toe Boot
Made with a premium full-grain leather, this safety toe chelsea boot looks good and performs even better. With two pull tabs, one in the front and one in the back, this boot is easy to pull-right on and get on with your day.
The sole is a lightweight and abrasion-resistant TBU material. Constructed using the direct-inject construction, it’s both flexible and durable. Since this boot is a Timberland Pro boot, it comes with their Anti-Fatigue technology, which absorbs shock and returns energy while walking.

Muck Boot Excursion Pro Mid Boot
Ranking at the top of our list for the short pull-on boots is the Muck Excursion. This boot is very versatile. Having a rubber outsole, this boot is extremely flexible and completely waterproof. This boot lacks a bit of durability due to this rubber upper, because a sharp object could rip it.
Best Tall Pull On Boots
Thorogood American Heritage Wellington Boot
Starting us off is the USA made American Heritage Wellington boot. This boot features an all leather upper with a pair of pull straps. Although this boot doesn’t have a waterproof liner, it is still water-resistant. Leather will eventually soak up water, but if treated properly with mink oil, it will also repel the water and not allow it to soak through as fast.
The goodyear welt ensures that this boot is made to take a beating while also being comfortable thanks to the outsole and Shock Absorption footbed combination. Although this outsole is a bit softer (making it comfortable), it is Thorogood’s MaxWear® Outsole and helps with the outsole wear.
Irish Setter 11-inch Two Harbor Pull-On Boot
This Irish Setter Boot is different from most pull-ons. This boot has a vibram sole that is heat resistant and has been designed and tested to withstand melting at 495°F. This sole along with a cement-welt construction, which makes the heel durable and stable while also allowing for flexibility at the balls of your feet.

Timberland Pro True Grit Pull-On Boot

This boot features a full-grain leather upper and waterproof membrane, to help keep your feet dry. A composite safety toe to decrease weight and still offer extreme protection from impacts.

How We Ranked Our Boots
We know that you do have the ability to try every single one of these boots and rate them yourself, so we’ve done the hard work for you.
We’ve ranked each of our pull-on boots in five different categories, protection, durability, flexibility, waterproof, and comfortability.
What’s protection? We ranked protection by the boot’s ability to protect you from the outside elements. Meaning, when something happens in your environment (pipe drops on your foot, rock hits the side of your ankle, etc.) your boot should be able to shield your ankle and feet.
What’s durability? Exactly as it sounds, the ability of the boot to withstand everyday wear and tear in all elements.
What’s flexibility? The boot’s ability to flex with you. If you find yourself constantly crouching and kneeling around, you will want a boot that’s able to flex with you, not restrain you.
What’s waterproof? That’s right, it's the ability of the boot to keep water out of your boot.
Comfortability? This is for the guys who are wearing these boots all day, everyday. We rank these boots based on how well they prevent your knees and back from hurting while standing all day.
Which Pull-On Boots Are Best For Me?
This question is answered differently for each person. It simply depends on what you do for work and what you will be exposed to in that environment. If you are on a construction site, but are only sitting at a desk, you don’t need the most durable boot.
If you find yourself always crouching and kneeling, make sure you get a boot that can flex well. There are boots made specifically for crouching, it only makes sense to get the one made for the job.
Make sure you pick something made for your type of work. If you get something that isn’t,that’s like using a hammer to hit a screw, it might work a bit, but it makes life a hell of a lot harder.
