I had a pair of these about 20 years ago. Same style, color, leather, size...etc. So happy to see they are still the same. I never would have bought an "unknown" online. Boots are very personal, and have to be just right. I was a bit worried, it's been so long, but saw there are still US made, so I took a chance. Guess Nocona has figured out that "if it ain't broke, don't fix it". Wish more companies would do this. Highly recommend these.
