Last winter, the mellowest, least snowiest, warmest winter I can recall-- Both pairs of boots broke beyond repair. The smaller pair had the sole disintegrate and come apart, and the larger pair the tongue ripped out.
Tallman, as you may predict from his nickname, has some very large feet, so finding shoes for him involves special ordering.
I checked Timberland's website (I figure good solid workboots are what he needs) but everything in his size was just silly looking.
So I checked L.L. Bean (I like local, I like Made in America and I have L.L. Bean boots that keep my feet warm and dry).
