These are great boots
These boots are wonderful. I live in them half the year & have lost count of whether I've had 4 or 5 pairs since I discovered them several years ago. For the first year they are "good boots" worn with trousers anywhere and they become farm boots in saltbush desert and in rocky mountainous country. The instep is still in exactly the right place when finally sole and upper begin to separate after massive amounts of hard wear in wet and dry weather. I can travel 4 hours to a city with shoe stores and search for them without success. I can order them from Bells knowing they'll be delivered to our local post office and they'll arrive within a month.
