  1. Bought my first pair of Patrick (SD) 5142. I work on a Tug Boat and usually wear running shoes on the boat when travelling between jobs.I work 1 week on 1 week off and tonight I am going to work and will be wearing my Patrick (SD) 5142 shoes,I have silicone sprayed (waterproofed)them to try and keep the salt water from ruining them.I wore them for a week before trying them for work(tonight) and found them comfortable and stylish enough that I am going to buy a second pair for when I’m off of work.

  2. Too bad they don’y make these in a 14EEE. Would love to wear them at work (Work Authority)

  3. quick question: witch safety shoes ar more comfortable and light. I will be in those shoes all day…..I need just steel toe and slip on

    1. Hi Mihu,

      Good questions. Based on your needs I would recommend our Patrick 5142. It’s a great light safety shoe and available from most safety retail stores.

  4. I used mellow walk Patrick 5145. Really confortable but I need to have 5142 size 7EE. Can you please advise me in which stock can I find? Thanks

    1. Hi 5142 is available in size 7. You will be able to locate it at major safety retailers including Marks, Mister Safety and Work Authority. If you email us with your location we would be happy to source the shoe close to you:


  5. Great shoes! I am on my 2nd pair of Patrick’s as I wear out the elastic and they get far too loose after a year. Aside from that, highly recommend.

  6. I received a pair of these through my place of employment and I like the fit but the insoles are useless. I am standing, walking, and crouching on concrete floors for most of my day and these insoles do nothing for comfort. This wouldn’t normally be a problem because I could just replace them with a pair of after-market insoles as I’ve done in the past with other brand shoes but the insoles in these are not removable. They are glued in, making it impossible to fit them with after-market insoles. I ended up returning them and getting a different brand with removable insoles

    1. Hi Matt,

      Thanks for your feedback. When it comes to fit and comfort what works for one person doesn’t always work for another. Many of our safety shoes do have removable insoles, however that particular model was designed with the glued insole to enhance the Static Dissipative properties of the shoe. Again, sorry it didn’t work for you and we appreciate your comments.

  7. I have a pair of patirckm style5142 like to purchase a new pair size 9ee but I cant find a store close by can’t you direct me to a store close or online store to order a new pair . I am located in kitimat bc postal code v8c1z4 thanks for you help

  8. I have been a big fan of this shoe, and wore a single pair for almost 10 years as dress shoes and as a lab instructor for a paramedic program. The only part of the shoe I have found to wear out is the elastic sides. My feet slip out of the shoe a little too easily now. When I went to try on a new pair at Mark’s, the elastic wasn’t as tight as I was hoping a new pair to be, and I’m hesitant to get another pair because of that. Has the 538202 aka “Patrick 2.0” addressed that issue? It looks like there is less elastic on that shoe, possibly making it a little tighter? What are the other differences? Thanks for your time Admin!

    P.S. Also, I have found that they are not great as an ‘anti-slip’ shoe on wet smooth concrete.

    1. Hi Matthew,

      Amazing. 10 years from a single pair of Patrick 5142. That is fantastic. It is my belief that the elastic gore has been sourced from the same supplier over the years so has not changed. With that said the elastic in time can stretch.The new Patrick2.0 538202 model uses the same elastic found in 5142 however the new design should prevent it from stretching out over time. Key differences in the models include a new toe shape, removable insole for comfort and a new dual density PU/Rubber outsole. The rubber will definitely be an improvement on wet concrete. Feel free to email our customer service to find where the new model is available in your area: Thanks for writing.

  9. Hi could you please tell me difference between 5141 and 5142. And what do you recommend for the lightest steel toes posible without any laces. I need something slip and slide. Iam really interested in mellow walk

    1. Hi Andy,

      The only difference is colour. 5142 is black leather and 5141 is brown leather. 5142 is a classic Mellow Walk safety shoe. Very comfortable, not to heavy and looks good on the foot. Thanks.

  10. Hi, I have the Patrick 5142, it says the footbed is removable? does that mean I can remove and put my custom orthodics in? if so, how do I go about doing that?

    1. Hi Jason,

      Thanks for your question. The half sock is kept in place with a bit of shoemakers glue. Many orthotic makers will remove it with a pair of pliers if you have custom orthotics that need inserting. I’ve updated the description on the website to reflect this.

  11. Amazing shoes! I had the Patrick’s (5142) a few years ago and was so impressed at the quality and build of these shoes. A coworker recommended them for me and I never went back! I was so happy to see them being made in Canada! They definitely are worth spending on. Their pricing is very competitive, in fact, it’s often cheaper than other brands (Reebok, Timberland) and much higher in quality! Please don’t ever leave Canada, we love your shoes here!

    One quick question, what are the main difference(s) between the original and the Patrick 2.0? Thanks!

    1. Thanks Richard. Amazing feedback and yes we plan to continue making our shoes right here in Canada. As to your question, Patrick 2.0 offers a similar fit as the original Patrick, however the sole is made from PU and Rubber for better slip resistance. It also offers a removable footbed instead of glued in. Thanks again for writing to us.

  12. Why did you guys take away the Mellowwalk tag on the right shoe? The one I bought recently I’m assuming is the newer model over what I bought a years ago. The CSA tag is now bigger and on the right side, and the Mellowwalk tag is gone. Also there is an embossed logo on the right shoe as well.

    It looked much better before. I honestly might return it.

    1. Hi Joe,

      Thanks for the feedback. I went and looked at a pair and I agree with you. I prefer the Mellow Walk tag to the emboss and will speak with our production team about changing back. I did look at the CSA tag and at least from my eye it does look similar sized as in the past. The difference as you note is that we moved the location and that the shoe is now SD+ instead of simply SD. The size of the CSA tags is set by CSA so we have to follow their guidelines. Thanks for taking the time to write to us.

  13. These shoes are one of my favorites. I even use them for everyday wear now and not just in the office/warehouse. My one caveat though is the grip. On some surfaces they are just terrible when wet. Like the water creates a barrier and you’re just sliding around. For example tiles and commercial kitchen flooring.

    1. Hi Arthur, thanks for sharing. Patrick 5142 is one of Mellow Walk’s all time best sellers and as you suggest a great comfort shoe for just walking around. I will share your feedback regarding tile floors with our production team here.
