The real deal

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Savvytrvlr from Dixie on Saturday, April 9, 2011
These are amazing boots that will have a long life. I always wanted a pair of these boots, but did not want to pay too much. The extra $$$ spent are well worth it for a great boot that will last years to come. The break in period is normal for a high grade leather boot. Start out with a thin pair of socks and wear them around the home. Once they start to look and feel like they are taking shape, shift to a typical wool hiking sock. In a week they feel like part of my feet. The best part is this boot can be resoled over and over again so you only go through the wear in period once. I am thinking these boots will last at least 4 years if not 14. Looking forward to putting them to the test in the outdoors; nevertheless, just from experience I can tell they are going to work fine in harsh conditions.
