Great buy when on sale!
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Farming the Foothills from CA Foothills on Monday, July 25, 2011
Purchased with a coupon, these boots are a fantastic buy. I also have the guide model, which I believe have a 3/4 shank, making them very stiff. These boots have a 1/2 shank, and are much easier to break in. I have been working in them everyday all day for a week and not one blister, even from new. The sealed tongue keeps stickers and dirt out of the boot, and the soft (like glove) leather lining means any stickers that get over the top of the boot don't attach and can easily be swept out. Very water resistant as well. Laces attract small stickers less than most, but could be swapped for leather laces. Order your favorite insole; the stock ones are worthless. I wear an 11 Wide and these fit exactly as they should, with plenty of toe-box room. Lots of grip on the rocks/ground. Nice padded collar. I am still working on breaking in the guide model, whereas this boot is ready for work/whatever immediately. Very highly recommended.
