So about a year ago I decided to drink the koolaid and fork over serious bucks for some Redwing moc toe boots. They were pricey and came in at about $450.00 bucks. My usual light hiker shit kickers usually come in around $150.00 Canukistannie.
I wouldn't say I am unhappy with them either, at this point. The proof of the pudding will be next year when these things are really broke in.
For now - the jury is still out! I will keep you posted.
