my 2nd new pair

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Tele-Bob from KS/Mo Line on Monday, June 22, 2009
These are the best so far! This 2nd pair will be my back up while I can get em at this price! And I went another 1/2 size smaller - 1st were 8.5W these are 8W. Replacing my Danner Size 9
I have feet with a fat ball area, skinny ankles & a high arch. And the way I walk,I destroy shoes & boots in less than a year. I have a trunk full of resoled Army issue boots ranging from 7.5XW to 9's, so much for standard shoe sizes. And 2 of the optional Matterhorns from the 10th Mnt Div. A favorite for extreme wet & winter. But I wore those out & the resole ruined the H20 proof as did the restitch due to water proofing ruining the threads and my feet would sweat(ie gortex boots)- by the 2nd pair they were not warrantied if you used snowseal (issued 1st time)or any other treatment. SO be ware of any extra treatment for your shoes. I now work winters for a small ski resort and my 1st pair that were a little long work great with heavy socks on snow & ice daily and into the office for the paperwork without worries of feet starting to sweat. Theses are not a cushy soft boot - but built the way they should be - tough & comfortable with in reason. AND these have helped my chronic low back pain :-)
