THESE ARE THE WORLD'S MOST UNCOMFORTABLE AND PAINFUL LEATHER BOOTS OF LIFE-- at first. But after thorough wear and painful, throbbing blisters that last two weeks and maybe even a whole month, they are the world's comfiest and effective shoes. These boots are waterproof (if you use their wonder basalm), chemical resistant, oil resistant, slip-resistant, life proof basically. Definitely recommend them, albeit the pain in the beginning!!
