Too good not to own a second pair
on June 2, 2012
What can I say about these boots. I purchased my first pair in 1997 when I was shooting Sporting Clays and had to navigate muddy courses. Leather boots always failed and most rubber boots left my feet clammy and smelly. These boots were recommended by a professional shooter and I bit the bullet and bought. Best footwear purchase I ever made.
I moved to a country home in 2003 and I wear these boots every day! Use them for daily dog walks, mail retrieval, yard chores, mowing, riding the tractor and ATV, shoveling snow (Or Running the Blower), walks down old Railroad roadbeds, retrieving firewood, shooting and the dozens of other things outdoors that occupy me. The first pair have been through tough conditions and although some dry rot has set in around the top they still keep my feet dry even standing in a cold stream over my ankles. The old boots look awful, but still function with no maintenance over the years. They keep my feet warm and dry in snow and cold water and cool and dry in hot summers.
I decided to get a new pair before they become unavailable, they are made in France after all. Never can tell what might happen. At least they are not made in China like just about everything else. Vive La France, as long as they keep making these boots.
And they are just about the most comfortable footwear I have ever owned. The zipper makes all the difference in these boots, easy on/off.
Even the British Royal family wears them, French made boots.
