Looking for a pair of boots to hit the Colorado mountains for elk as well as Arizona. Tried these on today and the fit was pretty good but need to scale down a half size from an 11 to 10.5. Giving a "2" because right out of the box the right boot had a one inch area where the material was separating from the top of the sole. Both boots appeared to have excess cement/glue residue all along the seams where the sole meets the boot material. Enough to make me wonder if these were refurbished or repaired and not listed as such.
Customer service at STP was awesome and very helpful. They're sending out the last 10.5 they have in stock as I package these up to send back to them.
Willing to give them and Irish Setter another shot at this, but something tells me if I'm getting the last pair of marked down boots, it may be comparable to getting the runt of the litter...
Beginning to realize when it comes to boots, get them where you can touch, feel, try on, and inspect. The good thing about this experience, is STP's return policy and customer service.
