Great classy boot
Reviewed by Ephblum from Amherst, NY on Sunday, February 10, 2013
Have had these for over a year now and they are in the thick of their 2nd winter. These are a great set of boots and still look almost new. Super well made with heavy leather uppers and a thick sole. Fully resoleable means they will probably never wear out. The oiled leather resists scuffs very well. The slip-on aspect makes them easy to get into when grabbing the dogs for a walk or running out to the car. Traction is fine in the snow but like all boots without spikes they do slip a bit on frozen sidewalks. They are a bit harder to get off but that is because they actually fit well and are comfortable to walk around in, with minimal heal slippage(for non-lace boots that I can actually get on and off I assume there will be some amount of heal slippage). Real shearling lining and thick sole mean toasty feet-sometimes a little too much so for me when slogging through un-shoveled sidewalks but I don't consider that a real negative. It's hard not to laugh at other family members walking about in their "uglies"-as I call their Ug boots-when I have these on.
