i have owned plenty of them ... got a pair here now with the canvas sides ... and all they are good for is walking ... a winter of mud hard work and scuffing on rocks and these boots wouldnt last 2 mins ... if you want a decent pair of boots get some lowers

they look very much like some cheap boots the wife got us last year made by thinsulate with the material on the sides.
they barely lasted a year and too soft for digging in alright for the lamping though :good:

I've had a couple of pairs, they're not a bad light boot, soft like a trainer. The leather needs looking after, water and disinfectant seems to rot them, I found they always crack across that crease between the toes and the laces.

If i was gonna pay that much id be tempted to go the extra £50 or so for a pair of Lowa's,tried and tested them Lowas,before i got into the dogs i had a pair for nearly 5 years :blink:

Well this type of boot is bought by many a cadet for their field craft training and have served me well when i did my starred badges and i did everything from rolling in mud to jumping over 12" walls!!

They are only boots at the end of the day and they arnt that expensive....

Altamas for summer work (with a goretex sock if you're on the wetlands)
Matterhorn, Danner or Lowas for proper work

I've tried a pair of Cabela's own brand this last winter and they've been excellent.
