I have abused, kicked, scraped and worn out boots for more than 40 years. 18 months ago I took an afternoon to shop for my next pair that I knew would be on my feet for 300 - 350 times at 10-12 hrs per day. I've been a R** W*** fan since the 60's, so I was fitted and walked in boots at 3 of their stores (in my area near Denver not all stores stock the same boots). I also tried on boots at S***s and the S****** Store. Not having found that feel I wanted I stopped at my neighborhood Walmart and tried on a pair of the Herman Survivors Wide Width boots. The good feel was overwhelming there. I was a little concerned about the cheap price as all the other boots I had just tried on were in the 109.00 to 229.00 price range, but I figured that even if they only survived my rough treatment for 6 months I would have gotten a good value from them. Well here I am online all these months later and I just bought a new pair of the same boots...by the way the 18 month old pair of Hermans showed the same heel and toe wear all the other brands I ever worn had. I have never polished them, they got regular exposure to wet concrete, paint, wet weather, snow, mud, and I probably averaged about a half mile every day just walking.
