    Built tough, but unforgiving:
    I purchased a pair of these boots 2 years ago, not realizing they were manufactured in China. The Pros are that this is a great looking boot, quality materials which have not worn out, thick leather, original laces still going strong, and a sole that is still in good shape. None of the eyelets have ever pulled through or wobbled loose. The steel shank in the sole supports my 235 pounds all day long without effort. I have worn these boots to work areas in Africa, Afghanistan, and the States. These boots have never let me down unless I was standing in a puddle of water, as they are NOT designed to be waterproof. The leather even today is tough, sturdy, and provides great ankle support. The Cons are that this is a very unforgiving boot. Every day I put these on I know I am putting on an unfriendly boot. Not comfortable, even after 2 years…..they still feel like they are not yet broken in. The boots as a pair weigh in at 6 pounds, so do not kid yourself that these are lightweight boots you can run in. After a day spent walking in these boots my dawgs are tired and needing a break. The steel shank in the sole supports my 235 pounds all day long without effort. The only thing that gives me relief from these boots is either fresh, thick work socks in the morning, or taking them off at night. There is no in-between. If you are looking to spend $150 on boots that will still be going strong 8-10 years later I think these fit the bill. However, I am now purchasing a pair of Carolina boots that are nearly identical, are waterproof, and are MUCH more comfortable straight out of the box.
