My late brother Craig always spoke about the true value of Union Made products. The Carolina Boots I bought over 5 years ago are still intact! The soles worn down to the seams still are as comfortable as the day they were new. I will never forget when I opened the box it smelled like a Saddle Store! Then when I put my hand inside the boots is when I was really blown away about the quality! I work 12 hour days and when I come home ,I forget to take them off,I have had so many less expensive made in China boots that after 4 hours of work I am in pain. Required to take off boots throughout the day for relief.. Moreover those cheap boots are destroyed in months from daily work.To all who need a reality check, Carolina Boots are the best boots anywhere and although they may be more expensive?They are by far the best value for your money and your feet! Placing order now for the 6 USA made boots.
