These are truly an heirloom quality item. Ordering boots this expensive without a try-on was a bit dicey but nailed it first try. (FWIW, I went down ½ size from my New Balance usual)
Workmanship is excellent and the leather is top shelf. Quite surprised that they were comfortable right out of the box.
Worth the investment, these will doubtless outperform and outlast a pile of lesser boots.
I received the boots today, between the shipping and import fees I had to pay 160.- bucks over the stated price. I feel I should have ordered a half size smaller. And there is a good amount of space in the toes. But once I put them on I found that they will work. the insole is great, and the weight is perfect. a little warm for this European summer weather, but found them already broken in. Or close. I will continue to wear them and left the leather form with my feet. (I've been waiting over 15 years to buy this boot.)
