Overview of Indestructible

Indestructible Shoes was founded by Eric Nyugen, and other guys who had been working on their feet for years. They were determined to create an all-in-one work shoe, where the typical sneakers, work boots, and slip-resistant shoes just didn’t cut it. This all-in-one shoe would be built to function in different environments and protect the feet against workplace hazards. Intensely durable, lightweight, and comfortable all at once.

Raise your hand if you’re only used to finding clunky, old-timey decidedly unattractive work shoes. Indestructible vows to design work shoes that actually look good. Stylish and safe don’t have to be mutually exclusive. When you browse the Indestructible Shoes site, every pair looks like trendy and casual footwear you’d find at Nike. Except your Air Jordans can’t walk across a bed of nails or be set on fire. 

Unbreakable Shoes

Indestructible Shoes recommends its shoes for construction and labour jobs, hiking and the outdoors, military and security personnel, and the restaurant environment. That’s a pretty wide reach. How can we be sure that these shoes will survive all that foot abuse? This Indestructible shoes review took me to their website, where you can watch a video all about their safety testing.

Indestructible Shoes Review 1

The camera rolls and it appears that members of the Indestructible Shoes team are in a lumber yard, for some reason. While a hammer is dropped on one of the shoes, we hear, built with military-grade kevlar, Indestructible work shoes are incredibly tough. Damn, ok. Kevlar. 

Then we are introduced to a guy named Steve, who apparently works on a construction site. Steve is safe at his work station surrounded by dangerous tools, because of the steel toes in his shoes, which are made of fire-proof material. Steve and the narrator give each other a thumbs up. It’s all very chill.

Some other stuff happens, the narrator tells us to pick up some Indestructibles, and then he drops a brick on his shoes. In slow motion. The video ends as we hear make-believe sounds of the construction site. I was both impressed by the shoes, while also entertained by how cheesy the video is.

You can find other safety testing evidence on the site, like someone walking on nails and the shoes being run over by a car tire (while being worn). I’ve only mentioned comfortability in passing, which we’ll get into for each bestselling pair in this Indestructible shoes review.

Ryder Indestructible Shoe Review

Indestructible Shoes Review 3
Indestructible Ryder Green

The Ryder Green was showcased by Military Times, with variations in black, grey, and pink. Something to know about kevlar: it’s seriously tough, yet also incredibly lightweight (the shoe weighs less than 1 lb). The Ryder shoe contains a breathable kevlar flymesh, providing tons of airflow to prevent stinky and sweaty feet on the job. European heavy-duty steel protects your toes from crushing and falling objects. 

The Ryder soles are puncture resistant, with a padded midsole for extra cushioning. They feature no tie laces, where you just pull to customize the fit. Ryders are built to be springy and flexible, which helps distribute body weight evenly. They’re so flexible, that they’re twistable (photo evidence on the site). These lightweight work shoes are on sale for $79, originally $160.

Indestructible Shoes Waterproof CamoX Review

Indestructible Shoes Review 4
Indestructible CamoX Red

The CamoX is Indestructible’s first waterproof work shoe. It’s made of the classic military grade kevlar, weighing less than 1 lb, with steel toes and puncture resistance. The CamoX features a shock resistant sole that can keep up with strenuous activity. Working with that shock resistance is an upgraded insole: extra-padded heel cup, 3D arch support, and breathable mesh. 

These red and black work sneakers have an easy slip on/off design to save time. The CamoX is springy and flexible for even weight distribution. The red camo details, red numerals, and white line texture on the outsole definitely puts them a level up in work shoe aesthetics. These Indestructibles also come in black/white, discounted to $79 from $160.

Indestructible Military Battlefield Shoes Review

Indestructible Shoes Review 5
Indestructible Camouflage Green

This military-inspired Camouflage Green shoe is hardcore, as far as civilian footwear goes. Built with Indestructible’s go-to kevlar, these sneakers have a separate shock absorption layer and wear-resistant tech. An anti-puncture steel midsole plus insulation from electric shock keeps you protected from numerous workplace hazards. Plus, an anti-slip rubber sole makes this Indestructible shoe skid proof. 

The Battlefield Series is also available in blue and grey, discounted for $79 (originally $160).

Airwalk Indestructible Shoes Review

Indestructible Shoes Review 6
Indestructible Airwalk Grey

These Airwalk Grey sneakers share a lot of the same features as the Battlefield Series, with a more modern look. Kevlar, protective steel toe cap, anti-slip rubber sole. An extra shockproof layer, anti-puncture steel midsole, wear-resistant tech and protection from electric shocks. 

These are basically the Camouflages, minus the military theme. Indestructible Airwalk shoes also come in blue, black, red, and pink for $89 (discounted from $160).

Indestructible Hummer Shoes Review

Indestructible Shoes Review 7
Indestructible Hummer Red

The Hummer Red is another fan favorite and Indestructible’s most futuristic design. They look cool, and the airflow from kevlar fly mesh actually makes them cool. No sweaty and odorous feet on the job (at least, that reek won’t be coming from you). European steel toes, a shock-resistant sole, and puncture resistance are Indestructible’s MO. 

The Hummer sneaks have an upgraded insole like the CamoX, providing extra-padding in the heel cup, 3D arch support, and breathable mesh. They’re flexible, completely twistable, and weigh less than 1 lb like the Ryder. I like the sweet texturizing on the outsoles, which stand out like the ones on CamoX. These Indestructible shoes also come in grey, all black, and black with a neon yellow stripe for $79 (originally $160).

J3 Indestructible Shoes Review

Indestructible Shoes Review 8
Indestructible J3 Black

There’s no point trying to decide whether the J3 Black is a sneaker or a work boot—it’s a bit of both. Even though it gives you extra coverage around the ankle, you won’t be sweating it out in the J3. It’s got moisture-wicking kevlar flymesh to keep things nice and airy. European steel toes, puncture resistance, you know the drill. 

What sets these apart from other Indestructibles is their fire resistance. Please do not tempt fate and set them on fire. They have the extra-padded insole of the Hummer and CamoX, plus the flexibility and super light traits of the Ryder, weighing less than 1 lb. The J3 also comes in green, grey, red, and black for $79, originally $160.

Indestructible Accessories

Indestructible Shoes also sells shoe insoles, compression socks, knee support pads, and no-tie shoelaces. We won’t be discussing them in this Indestructible shoes review, but you can get a sense of their pricing:

  • Indestructible Insoles: $18.65, originally $24.40
  • Indestructible Compression Crew Socks (2 pairs): $17.20, originally $24.40
  • KneeTec Support Pads: $58.80, originally $99
  • Indestructible No-Tie Laces: $8.60, originally $14.35

Indestructible Shoes Reviews: What Do Customers Think?

Indestructible Shoes Review 9

Indestructible Shoes have near perfect 4.5/5 star ratings on the website. Like this Ryder shoe review: “Wow. It’s much lighter than my boat shoes. I work 10 hours a day, 6 days a week and so far it feels great to be on my feet.” The reviews are positively glowing.

Our Indestructible shoes review ventures deeper, since you can’t judge a book by its cover (or a shoe by its website). The Indestructible shoes review Reddit scene is decidedly less favorable. A plumber called the video advertising the shoes as impenetrable to nails “a flat out lie,” since nails did go through the soles of his. Another user said that the Indestructible shoes he purchased for his grandson only lasted a month. In a separate Reddit thread, a reviewer claimed that the outsole completely detached within a month.

Indestructible Shoes also do not fare well on Trustpilot, with 1.5/5 stars and 92% bad reviews. The amount of times I read “scam” started to make my head spin. Customers complained of having to wait months for delivery, shoes arriving fallen apart or falling apart shortly after, and the near impossibility of receiving a refund. 

There was a lot of discussion about drop shipping scams and customers buying the shoes from unverified sources. It may be that these Reddit users thought they were purchasing from Indestructible, but only received knock-offs. The Indestructible Shoes page on Facebook has a lot of positive reviews. rated Indestructible shoes favorably, and the brand wouldn’t have been featured in Military Times if they were poor quality, right? Hmmmm.

Our Verdict on Indestructible Shoes

Indestructible Shoes Review 10

We absorbed some conflicting feedback in this Indestructible Shoes review. Close to perfect reviews on the website and endorsement from big media sources, all amounting to a scam? I searched on Amazon and AliExpress, and it turns out that there are shoes being advertised with the exact product names as Indestructible shoes.

There’s no way to tell whether the reviewers purchased real Indestructible shoes, or fake ones. Or if it really is just some big scam. My shady senses are tingling. Based on everything I’ve read, it seems like it’s a risk to buy Indestructible shoes. If you want to take the risk, make sure you purchase directly from their website.

Thank you for your review. Perfect!! Unbiased and truthful. Hard to find nowadays with news like the Corrupt News Network. I have been wanting to buy these shoes only to wonder if they were the real deal and yes I looked on Amazon and thought the other were the same. Must be careful on Amazon.


It’s a scam company in China do not buy them. Same boilerplate coment from their customer service as the other reviewers say.

Received mine within a month so I don’t know what your issues were. They feel great and now can’t wait to go to work in them. By the way it did note due to covid prior to ordering that 6-8 weeks on delivery.

Company is a total Mess. Also ordered them Beginning of March. Just got them End of June. From China. Shoes are very heavy, sole is like a Surf board, Insole is like paper. No way in hell i will wear them… I am a contractor and boots cost me $180 and up. Thank god they are cheap but they Def. Got me. will be reporting them to BBB.

i bought the j3 model shoe from there website. took 10 weeks which isnt a big deal at the moment. they are lightweight and comfortable. shoe laces suck, to lace them up loose the laces arent long enough, to tie them tight you have to pull on every lace individualy, same process for getting them off. the bottom of the shoe (tread) is made of a soft foam, which is why they are comfy but after only wearing them for 2 weeks the tread has major wear and tearing in spots. wont buy again. ive searched there site so i can add a review….i see no way to add a review on there website.

These hoes are very narrow.

Returning them is a nightmare. Shipping is on you and there is a 15% restocking fee.

Avoid this cheap Chinese product.

I need to return the 3 that I bought. I ordered 10.5 US Size but got 37. How did you get them to refund your money?

Have worn them for many occasions. Worst would be hiking. Amazingly sturdy sole and steel toe but absolutely no support for the rest of the foot. Going downhill, I practically broke my ankle from feet sliding off the sole. Not to mention it took over 5 months and extensive money to receive, return for wrong size and receive new shoes. Covid may have impacted, but not that much. Not worth the price and policies for these shoes.

Paid and it took two months for them to arrive. Fell apart in less than two months ……. not so indestructible! Nothing but Chinese junk! DO NOT BUY! Not worth one star rating!

Bought the CamoX and ripped them in less then a day’s use.
No kevlar (military or other). These shoes are made of neoprene and have a steel toe.

Total fraud.

Worst of all, no refund possible. Only offered me 40% discount on a new purchase.

My husband recently purchased a pair of your shoes. They are far too narrow to be worn comfortably. There is no size on the shoes. How can we exchange them for a different size?

I purchased these shoes for my son. DO NOT BUY!!! For one, I was told that they would arrive 12-21 days. The day after I ordered I received an email saying they had been shipped! 4 weeks later the tracking info said they were still sitting in Shanghai. Customer service via email is scripted saying the shoes will arrive soon and they will be worth the wait. The shoes finally arrived over 8 weeks later and they were awful. Terrible fit and the soles peeled away from the shoe within 2 weeks. I definitely purchased the shoes from the Save yourself some aggravation and money….. do not buy these shoes!

Really bad shoes… Took nearly two months to arrive, and when they did, I wore them for two weeks until a giant chunk fell out of the sole. I wish I could attach a photo, but these are not good quality. I strongly suggest you don’t buy from indestructible.

Horrible shoes, I could have got better ones at my local Gander outdoor store. You and stupid Paypal messed me up with this took forever to get delivered piece of crap shoes, but it’ll never happen again. You claim these shoes are anti slip and is not true at all, we walked over wet ceramic tiles and stained wet concrete floors and is like if you’re on roller skates. Again, these fricking shoes are a piece of crap.

I bought these for my son who is a landscaper and within 3 months, both laces broke and the sole is coming out. Absolute gabage!

Military grade kevlar but my lace pulled through the eyelet. So I contact them and I get this bs.
Hello Gregory,

Thank you for contacting us. Based on the nature of the product, the warranty is not applicable once the product has been used. We do accept return and exchange within 30 days, however; the product has to be in the original condition.

It is an exceptional case and I’ve talked to my boss, we agreed to give you an extra 40% off if you order new shoes. It has never happened here in the past but we’d like to make this offer for you.

Please let me know if it works for you. Thank you,

Best regards,

Van Arcenas
How do you know if they are with a crap unless you wear them and once you wear them it voids any warranty

I bought indestructible shoes STAR boots just barely a month ago and the boots are unfortunately starting to fall apart at the seams at the inner instep of the right boot and the outer instep of the left foot. (Photos attached)

Response I got:

“Thank you for sending the photos. Based on the nature of the product, the warranty is not applicable once the product has been used. We do accept return and exchange within 30 days, however; the product has to be in the original condition.

It is an exceptional case and I’ve talked to my boss, we agreed to give you an extra 40% off if you order new shoes. It has never happened here in the past but we’d like to make this offer for you.”

Next reply:

“I’m really sorry to hear about what happens to the shoes.

We stand by the quality of our products but the longevity of the shoes depends on how it’s being used and the environment it’s in. We have no control over how customers use the shoes after but we’ve had customers who have had their shoes for years and still in great condition.

What I can offer in this case is a discount to purchase a new pair of shoes. If you’d like to accept the 40% discount code exclusive for you to get another pair of shoes from us, please let us know.”

Best Regards,


Final response:

“We thank you for the time telling us this. We really tried to appeal for a refund to no avail.

Please know that we are always looking for ways to improve our products and services. Your feedback is highly appreciated and I assure you that this will be forwarded to our management team for future references.”

These are cheaply made shoes. I saw add on a social media site and was hook line and sinker. Don’t buy these shoes. No foot support in shoes. When you can bend them in a ball you know they cheap shoes. Wore them for 2 days and feet couldn’t take them any longer. Doesn’t give size number on shoe. People need to wake up and stop buying this cheap crap china makes.

This is a total SCAM. First, they represent themselves as a U.S.-based company – they aren’t. Depending on what page or ad you view, they represent themselves as being located in Washington state and in Delaware, they are not in either. They are actually headquartered and based in China. All of the product is shipped from China (they will tell you it is just shipping from their warehouse). This in and of itself is not that big of a deal, but check your credit card statement and some may find a Foreign Transaction Fee associated with the purchase because the bank the transaction goes through is also in China. Their bank is based in China. If they were U.S.-based as they claim, why would they perform all of their banking transaction in China? There is NOTHING U.S. about this product except maybe the actors in the ad.

I ordered a pair of shoes on December 4, they traveled around China for a week before arriving at JFK on December 11, as of December 23, they are still somewhere at JFK. The response I received from Indestructible was, “I suggest you reach out to your local post to ask how to retrieve the package. If the package is not claimed and they will return it back to us, we will process a refund as soon as our warehouse receives the package.” Like it’s my job to manage their shipping issues.

I plan on filing a complaint with PayPal, if they receive enough negative complaints PayPal will drop them or charge them higher fees. There is no reason it should take more than 2 weeks for something to arrive from China. But that assumes you don’t mind being duped by some Chinese con-artist that fraudulently represent themselves as being U.S.-based.

I suggest people start writing letters to Google, Facebook, and all of the other social media sites where Indestructible is advertising and let them know they are helping to perpetrate a fraud and SCAM and put pressure on them to drop the advertising here in the U.S.

Bought one pair of boots which I like, got asked for a review of both pairs which I have paid for but still have of received one, and have heard nothing from the company after emailing them asking where the second pair was hm???
If I ever get the other pair (for my step son) I may order more EXCEPT, but they are made in China so I will find a competitor made in NA or at least a nom-communist, non- socialist country

I received a pair of the J3’s as a gift. They feel comfortable and light on my feet. Time will tell as I use them whether or not I will regret them, do stay tuned.

Terrible. Shoes were delivered 11/19/2020 And the photos attached are from 12/21/2020. The shoes did not last a month in the body shop. They are literally falling apart. Save your money. The company is not willing to refund, exchange, compensate, etc. But they were so kind to inform me they’ve “shipped hundreds with no complaints”. That may be true, but it certainly doesn’t put the customer first or do anything to make my experience better. My husband has never gone through a pair of work boots or shoes in less than a month, and he’s been in the industry for 15+ years. The shoes are marketed right in the description for “manual labor”, but they couldn’t withstand a month under regular working conditions inside a collision center. Never again. Photos available!
