20 years ago I bought a pair of Red Wings Pecos pull on boots for work. I didn't like them working on ladders so I replaced them for work. I did like walking in them and kept them for weekends and after work. I liked them so much I bought a black pair that I wore as dress boots. I have worn both pair of boots for a whole lot of miles. I finally gave up on the black ones as dress boots and they got a lot more miles on them.

My mother wanted to buy me something for Christmas, but doesn't admit to knowing about the motorcycles I have hidden from her for 30 years (she was an ER nurse), so what could I ask for? New boots!

Went out to the local boot shop (Chester) and tried on a pair of Double H boots. In a minute I was walking to the register with my new boots on. They felt great new, so in a few years we will see how they stack up.

Kinda pricey, but made in USA (Pennsylvania) and very nice. No more than Red Wings replacement would have been.

Boot guy told me that about half of his boots are made in China, but that is shifting back in our favor. Apparently either the Chinese wages have come up (or ours have come down) enough that there is less advantage to import! :clap:clap:clap
