Very good replica of WW2 GI boots. Fit is comfortable. While breaking in one eyelet came loose from top right strap. This was replaced with a new one I have in a repair kit. The barrel of the eyelets do not go all the way through the width of the straps, this could pose a problem. 5 star boots with 3 star eyelets, so minus 1 star. Great boots otherwise.
Great fit and all that, the only issue is the top leather is treated so it does not take oil well. I had to strip and dye them to get them to look correct.
I waited until I had time to break these in a little and they are holding up well and starting to look great. I used snowseal on them, wore them on a couple short hikes. Got them wet in creeks and stream; waterproof with the snowseal. Starting to get that shark nose look at the toe. My only minor concern would be that one metal eyelet on a strap popped out on the first use. No big deal. I’m very glad I bought these and would recommend them. Oh yeah, very comfortable and I have wide feet.
