Well made, sturdy yet comfortable boot

Reviewed by doctor superfly from Utah on Saturday, November 4, 2017
I've been looking for a good pair of hiking boots that could also serve as general work boots and for walking to work in snowy conditions. These fit the bill nicely. They're heavy duty, but not too big or heavy. The soles have great grip. The leather is breaking in nicely and is very water resistant (water beads up the instant it hits the shoe). My only complaint (which is now resolved) is that the leather on one of the shoes initially bent near my big toe in a way that was uncomfortable, but with some additional use and manual breaking in, it's no longer a problem. I also worried about them being too warm. My feet sweat pretty easily, but with a sock liner, I haven't had any problems on this front either. My feet have stayed drier in these than they do in my other leather shoes and dress boots. Size wise, I usually have to wear a 13 to find something wide enough but the size 12 in 2E have plenty of room in the toe box. They've also loosened up a bit after wearing them a couple of days. Initially, I worried they were a hair to narrow, but they're perfect now. For some, they may have too much room. (Though, when I tried on an 11 2E at the store, they were way too snug.)
