Well, it depends on which country of origin your pair comes from...
on February 20, 2013
My husband is a UPS driver, and he goes through boots every few months. We purchased this make and model of Georgia Boot at Boot Barn in March of 2012. They lasted him much longer than most other boots he's tried. He got all the way through November of 2012! Normally, he needs new ones every three months.
Since they were such long-lasting, quality boots, we decided to order him another pair. Since we already knew that this size and model were great, I ordered them through Amazon. The price was better than Boot Barn, and it saved me a big drive as well.
The boots arrived and looked exactly the same as his old pair. However, when he went to try them on with the insoles he has to use, they fit totally wrong. He couldn't get his foot in with the insole in. He had to wear them and sort of squish down the original sewn-in insole for a couple weeks before he could stuff the insole insert in. We were trying to figure out what the deal was, and why they were different, and that's when we noticed that the country of manufacture was different between the two pairs!
So he isn't as happy with the new pair as he was with his old ones. And for some reason, the pair we ordered from Amazon make his feet stink to high heaven!! That is new and it has to be the boots, because his feet never stink. And they don't stink when he wears the old ones around home, only when he wears the new ones.
I find it very annoying that the boots are not consistent.
