Had these boots for 15 yrs. the best boot/shoe I ever owned. looking for a new pair right now. I finally wore these out. they were my dress boot for 10 years, then 5 years as a work boot as a mason. they were so comfortable. these were my 24/7 boot. no need for any other shoes, Hunting, Fishing, Hiking, Working. Etc...These are better then jungle boots. Well made, and make you feel like you are walking on water. My feet were never sore, or hurt until I wore these out, and started wearing a pair western boots which tore up my feet. Can't wait to get another pair of these. May just get 2 this time, I'm afraid I will not be able to find them. FYI the leather gave out before the sole.
