This is a sad but true story. I got these last year at a local sporting goods store for full price, in MN we get blizzards and we had one soon after I got these, I wore them to do the driveway with the snow blower; so they were worn less than an hour. Not quite two weeks after that my father in law was killed by an idiot that ran a red light. I got his vintage Sorels (see photo). I can’t bring myself to wear these boots again. My loss is your gain.
