Nothing like a real Italian boot

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Craig from Mtns of western PA on Tuesday, October 6, 2009
If you've never owned a handcrafted Italian or other European boot, next time you buy a boot, go for it. The Chinese may know how to make sneakers, but they're no match against a European boot. I've been wearing 3/4 and full shank European boots for 25 years and have yet to get a bad pair. These boots are full welt, medium weight boots and true to size. I've worn them on and off for two weeks; several days at work in the office with smartwool socks and they don't sweat and have pretty much broken in. I refer to them as medium duty although many would think that they are heavier duty boots. I consider heavy boots full shank and nearly immobile, but great for stability while hunting in the mountains of western PA or hiking in the west. Get a pair of these and enjoy a real boot this fall and winter for a change.
