I owned a pair of these boots twenty years ago and wore them to the bone. I always thought about them and when I saw them again at this price, I jumped. They arrived just when Online Shoes said they would and I got to take them on a trip to the north right away. They hold you firm and fast and the heel is enough to place you head and shoulders above the rest. I have them a little bigger because of two different size feet and so I have room, but I am not swimming.
They have a great rise and are just tall enough not to be a full combat style boot and not too low so that you are low rise. The black oiled surface is smooth and easy to maintain. When you get scuffs it seems as though you can just rub them out. I got compliments daily on my new boots and wore them daily.
The old original Skecher had wood in the chunk sole and this appears to have been replaced with a colored resin of some sort, but I am not complaining. Someone asked if it was wood so the look is absolutely on par with the originals I owed.
Look. When you wear a shoe and dig yourself wearing them and on top of that get questions about your shoes? It's a score. I have already sold three more pairs.
