Built like Fireman Boots

Reviewed by Bushman from Tullahoma, TN on Sunday, February 23, 2014
Just wore them for the first time yesterday. Wore them four hours and I can say is wow! When folks talk about a little stiff and need to break in LISTEN. They are like SKI BOOTS but they did slightly better after a few hours, which was all my feet could take. Made the old RedWing Boots seem like tennis shoes. I am a farmer/landscaper/Boy Scout by trade. I wanted a boot I could beat up and still last a long time. Before wearing I gave them a few coats of neatsfoot oil compound to soften them up and it gave them a nice rich dark brown color. They were originally very grey. I intend to use zamberlan hydrobolic cream from now on mostly because I have lots of it. They are very solid and look like fireman boots. Will not win styling points with the cappuccino crowd. Some one said they are what you would have if you but your foot into the side of a cow. But they are what they are very very tough service boots. They will protect your ankle if you are hiking in rocky areas and not blow out on you. I originally bought the Zamberland 1025 Tofane (460.00) and wow GOD SMILED as those were created! I can wear them to church absolutely beautiful and unbelievably comfortable and I still have them:). They are made to last 30 years yet I could not bring myself to scuff new zamberlands just yet while working under a tractor so I bought the alico's for that and service work in landscaping. I can slam these boots against a spade and never worry about hurting them. I am giving them 5 stars for at their price level they do what they are suppose to do better then any local boot I could buy. I have never had boots that truly needed to be BROKEN IN and I was warned so in good conscience I will not deduct any points for that. Did I mention untill they are broken in they are like SKI BOOTS?
