Good quality-well constructed boot

Verified Buyer Reviewed by BeFit from Doylestown, PA on Thursday, February 25, 2010
I had a pair of leather Herman Survivors. The sole detached. I decided to get a better pair of leather boots with Norwegian Welt construction. I've had these for about two weeks.
These boots fit well from the start with no break in period. I replaced the insole with a better one for comfort. I tried these out on a three hour hike in the snow. I had thick wool socks but these did not keep my feet warm. I will use these for milder temperatures since they are not insulated. I sealed the seams on these boots with seam sealer, and applied leather wax preservative to help seal out water. Time will tell how good these boots really are.
