Forget American buy Canadian!
on November 29, 2011
I'm from Minneapolis Minnesota and all my life I was raised to believe that LaCrosse Footwear IceMan's and IceKings were the creme de la creme of winter boots. Well news flash, they're not anymore, if you have a pair from the 80's or 90's yes, they probably are still holding up, because they were built by quality craftsman but anything made in the 2000's is garbage in fact LaCrosse Footwear has gone down the crap shoot on the quality of their boots since they closed their plant in LaCrosse Wisconsin and now make their boots overseas. After having read rave reviews about these Kamiks, and needing a new pair of all purpose ice fishing boots that can stand the test of the Minnesota Winters and ice fishing in sub-artic temps, since my $175 Ice Kings only last me TWO YEARS and then the rubber cracked and went to heck. I figured the price is right and then I caught the Black Friday deal and got these bad boys for $29.97 with free shipping. Get this I ordered them on friday, Amazon said free shipping would take 5-8 business days......they arrrived on MONDAY and were shipped from Kentucky! Outstanding Job on the shipping Amazon!!
The reviews about them running big are true. I wear a 10 in everything and I ordered a 10 and they do feel a little big, however thats the way I like them. I like to have toe wiggle room and thick socks, will make them perfect. The ice around here is about 3 or 4 days away from being thick enough to go out on and you can sure bet I'll be putting them to the test.
Don't let the title of this fool you, I'm a die hard American, Veteran and very patriotic, but when your talking about Cold Weather Gear....nobody does it better then Canada AY! Get yourself a pair of these and stop hesitating!
A very Happy Ice Fisherman in Minnesota!
