Take note that these boots are 2nd quality!
Verified Buyer Reviewed by natch from Oregon on Monday, June 22, 2015
On quick glance these boots appear just like the first-quality Durand boots but upon closer inspection they are different in the heel counter. These 2nd quality boots have sloppy fabric stitching. My daughter used them on a hike and developed a blister pretty quickly on one foot at the back of the heel. I had her remove the boot so I could do blister care and discovered a rather pronounced fold of fabric on the interior surface of the heel counter. Once home we compared these boots to a pair of first-quality Durands from a local retailer and saw that the first-quality boots have a very smooth surface in comparison. The exterior material is also different and appears more finished on first-quality boots. We ended up purchasing the first-quality pair from our local shop. Since she used these boots we are now unable to return them. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose...
