So far a good pair of boots.

When I was in high school, I had a pair of black leather Hush Puppies snow boots. They were SO comfortable and warm. That was 35 years ago. Believe it or not, I still have the boots! It's just that they have been a size too small for me since right after college. That's how well they were made! Since that time I have been looking for a pair of boots exactly like those but always came up short. About 3 years ago I found a very similar pair by another company but they were way too narrow in the toe box and they hurt my feet in general. When the zipper broke (after about the 6th or 7th time I wore them) I began searching again and stumbled upon these boots. Except for the suede portion and tread they looked like my old boots so I bought them. What a surprise! The are generously cut. The insole comes out to put in my custom made orthotics. The fleece inside keeps your feet toasty warm. They are higher than my original boots coming up to mid calf. Also, if you have large calves they might be a bit tight around the calf for you. Mine are not big and they just fit me. Even though I only have worn them once (its a mild winter here) they seem to have really good traction in the snow which is good because I slip easy due to back and muscle problems. They need to be broken in an bit but they seem VERY comfortable on my feet which is something the other ones I bought never were. Also they are not as dressy as my original Hush Puppies boots. You could get away with wearing my old ones with dress slacks if need be but not so much with these as they are more casual. I gave 5 stars instead of 4 because my old ones were made in the USA and they quality was better overall, especially the fleece lining. It was thicker as was the foot bed thus making the boots even more toasty but more comfy. I found out when I bought these boots that they are a discontinued item. I may just buy another pair and put them away until the ones I have wear out. That will save me another 20 years of searching for these kind of boots!
