Justin Gypsys and the Ariat Fatbaby boots aren't necessarily made for work. They were originally designed to be more of a fashion style boot. Now that the "fashionable" style has changed to pointed toe, tall-shafted, tall-heeled boots, (for women anyway) they have been set to the backburner.
For most people, they are comfortable, and they are nice because they are cheaper than most boots. They can fit well under some jeans because they have a short top. A 6" I believe. Ariat does have a taller style, the Probaby, that runs about 8" tall. The sole on those boots is a foam component, with only a very thin rubber lay on the bottom of the sole. And with it being a lug sole, (one solid piece) they cannot easily have heels replaced. For a basic boot they are okay, but if you are working in them they will not last very long. They also tend to stretch quite a bit, and have a shorter, wider, fit. So be sure that you get the right size if you get them.
