Nice Boots

Verified Buyer Reviewed by CharlieO from Long Island, NY on Wednesday, March 10, 2010
I'm looking to replace my 15 year old Italian-made Sundowners, and I'm hoping to do that with these.
I thought that the boots were maybe a little narrow, and there were some pressure points with the original innersoles. Replacing the innersoles seems to help with the pressure points.

Bottom line: these are beautiful mid-weight boots: if they fit your feet comfortably, you can't go wrong at this price.

The LL Bean boots that were on my shortlist are no longer made in Italy, so they're off my list.

I would recommend a good waterproofing treatment as these are not GoreTex (I'm not convinced that GoreTex in a boot really helps: water should not be soaking through the leather anyway, and GoreTex will cut breathability).
