I bought the boots to primarily cut the grass in order to prevent verdant socks when cutting in sneakers. Even though I may look like a pud, I am content in knowing that it is a simple affair to slip into the boots, bring Honda-mulching doom to the new lawn growth and easily blast away all the carnage with the garden hose. My gladiator footwear is primed for battle the following week, looking fine.
The boots aren't terribly heavy, somewhat true to size. Of course, they are spacious on the inside--I suspect that they may have birthed some baby boots at some point in time. They do stand at attention on their own in the garage. Wearing pants and having them fit inside the boots is a non-affair, although I must admit that below the knee, I am a bit svelte. They come with a light-weight insole which can easily be switched for something more comfortable if you plan on long shopping treks or a rigorous night of dirty dancing at the local country club, much to the chagrin of the stuffy older folk and parents of one long-wore-out-nicknamed young adult known as Baby.
Yes, they do indeed smell like a petroleum-based refined product, although I do fancily hope that my boots were made from the resultant hydrocarbons of peak oil--simply for elitist reasons.
For roughly $20, I have rarely bought such value, especially considering the cost of some of the alternatives.
"Stalking, walking in my big black boots" be the lyric that loops in my head when I rock these boots. Chyeah!
