I have purchased three pairs of these boots. Two pairs are still in the box in my closet. I bought two extra pairs after buying them because I was afraid I would not find them again.

These boots should come with care and conditioning instruction. That is my one gripe. I can see how someone might buy these boots and give them a negative review because they come very stiff and unforgiving on the feet. With proper conditioning however, they afford the wearer an amazing and affordable option.

If you wear them out of the box, and your feet do not have the callous of an elephant your will shred the hèll out of your feet. However, if you want them to wear like personal armor for your feet for lasting comfort, follow these steps.

1). Get a five gallon bucket or something else that will fit your boots that you can dump hot water in. A five gallon bucket works for me.

2). Purchase a can of saddle soap. These are REAL leather. That's why I bought them. You need saddle soap to condition the leather. It's cheap and you can buy it almost anywhere that sells shoe polish.

3). Put hot water in the bucket, as hot as you can get it from your tub faucet. Dissolve entire can of aforementioned saddle soap in this bucket of hot water. You technically do not NEED to add the saddle soap, but it will condition the leather with lanolins and other things that get you extended longevity from the leathers, it also gives that nice leather smell to the boots.

4). Submerge your boots in the container. I put two heavy rocks in my boots to keep them from floating up. Leave them in the solution for about an hour or so. The leather will become pliable and soft.

5). Get yourself a nice pair of boot socks. These boots are made for boot socks. Shake the water out of them and squeeze the sole at the bottom to get as much water out as possible. Put on your boot socks and slip the boots on while they are wet and hot. Lace them up as tightly as you can without making your foot uncomfortable.

6). Take them off and keep replacing socks as they absorb the water from inside. The boots will slowly dry as you wear them. By the end of the day, they will still be a little moist when you take them off, but they will be molded to the shape of your foot and wear like they were custom fit to your foot. I've been wearing mine for over a year, and they are snug, fit well, and the leather has showed few signs of cracking. Just basic wear and scuffs which I don't care about.

One thing I will say, which doesn't decrease the value for me, is that the soles have worn down considerably, but I believe it is due to how hard I am on them. For the price I can't really call it a complaint. I've hiked, worked, chopped wood, kicked burning coals back into the firepit, and went through all kinds of muck in them. They wear sturdy.

In general, I'm satisfied with the quality of the boots. I normally where a size 9, yet these size 8's are bit too large with regular socks on. Other than that, the boots are comfortable and solidly built. I strongly recommend, however, pay attention to the shipping and handling charges. Standard shipping is reasonable. Expedited, on the other hand, costs almost as much as the boots. I was in a rush so I had to bite the bullet, but if you can wait a couple weeks I recommend that you do.

These look nice, but they are quite stiff and definitely run a bit large. You might be better off ordering a size lower. The soles leave scuff marks on floors. I have lathered them in mink oil three times and it softened them up a little. Have been wearing them for a few days now and seem to be breaking in very slowly. Not the best boots I have purchased, but they also aren't the worst.

Is this product worth the money spent on it? Not with my experience so far. I would use the money towards a more expensive pair of boots.
Do I like this product? I'm on the fence
Would I buy this again? No
Would I recommend this product to family and friends? No

Followed the advice and ordered 1 size down. I normally wear a 8 in boots and the 7 fit really well.
Boots are nicely cushioned, but can be a bit stiff right out of the box. Laces are shorter than seen in product image (leaves top 3 eyelet pairs), not that it's a bad thing since you can slip them on without much difficulty.

I bought these for my father, and he found them to be real nice but they were a little to small.

These boots are okay. That's it, just okay. The leather is not very good; the boots cracked at the ankle and toe crease within a week (I have conditioned them weekly since the day I received them). They are too narrow around the calf, abnormally so. The sole is hard as can be. The toe is hard, but no steel toe at all. Probably not even composite.
But they are pretty tough and they look pretty cool.
Just go to a surplus store.

I had to put in a new gel insole, other that that its good for the price. The front nose that has the second layer of leather pushes in uncomfortably when kneeled or walking a bit and because of that, I have ended up not wearing it.

These are a great pair of boots. They fit me well, and luckily because I saw other reviews saying theirs didn't fit. They are comfortable and sturdy.The plastic ends of the lace that makes it easy to lace them through the holes came off on one pair of boots but I fixed that with melting the ends and making it into a point, or you could,use duct tape. The other problem is that they are not insulated, so get warm socks or get a slightly larger size and make your own insulation.
