Do you dream of being an intergalactic logger, but just don't fancy those clasic moon boots? Well you're in luck! NASA and Timberland have joined forces and redesigned space footwear as we know it! Rugged appearance? Check. Robust sole with mini lug tread capable of traversing the known universe and beyond? Check. Insulation to allow the wearer to withstand the subfreezing temps of space?! Check. Added squishyness for that boyant yet plush feel to simulate walking on the lunar surface? Check and check.
OK, in all seriousness, these boots are jumbo sized. If looking like you stole Paul Bunyun's boots is your aim, these are for you. They are masive! The lug sole was what I was looking for as well as the composite toe (the leather on the toe did feel rather thin and not stretched well over the toe. From other reviews I've read this has been an issue resulting in the leather being rubbed through rather quickly and or seperating from the stitching all together. The toung is not all leather, but a perferated, synethitic material that runs the length of the upper portion of the boot. They are extremly comfortable (seriously, it's so squishy you bounce when you walk) and warm (400g of Thinsulate). There was a lot I liked about the boot, but in the end returned them as I couldn't get past the anime-sized look.
