Was looking for something more substantial than the desert boots I was having to replace on a yearly basis. The Dainite soles are hard wearing and will likely last 3+ years before needing replacement. The leather is also unique and has a great deep brown almost burgundy appearance. I went TTS Brannock and they fit pretty well unless I am on my feet all day. Would recommend going up half a size if you have a high instep or are on the border of standard/wide width.
Comfortable right out of the box plus they look fantastic too.
One of my favorite additions. I needed an in-between boot, not too rugged and not too dressy. This look is classy but with the danite sole something that I don't have to baby. Love the pull-up of the leather and can't wait to see it age. The fit is fantastic and secure in the right places. I'd like to see the stitching be deeper set in the sole but I don't forsee there being any issues. They've held up so I'm not too worried.
