These boots were not really the "best" gift he got. However they were the most acclaimed! He opened them and loved their look. He especially loved the color. He is at a changing foot size. Sometimes 10, sometimes 11. He calls me Oma, and as soon as he got his foot in one, he was calling for my attention again. Oma! These fit perfect! Thank you. (10 1/2) He's learning to hunt this year and after a period of outdoor walking, as soon as he came back in he stated that these are the most comfortable "shoe" he has ever worn. 😀 Today when he was tying them back on again he said I love these. I can still smell the leather! Isn't that funny.
