Central Illinois, U.S.A.
This instantly became my favourite pair of boots. I wear them out for a casual evening and dress them up with a business causal outfit at work. They are extremely comfortable - I needed no break in at all. I wore them for fourteen hours the first day with no soreness or foot pain. Their versatility is nice, take them to the office or dress up as your favorite character from Shameless, these will fit right in. They are well built and look to last a long time.
The only drawback is that these are pricier than mass produced alternatives. However, when you consider Goodyear welt construction, handmade in the US and the rugged looks of these boots, these are kind of a bargain.
