Herman Survivor Men's Ardel Work Boots.
I have worn these since September of 2013, and have another pair of recent.
Short version: Great boots, have proven themselves here on the farm, at work, hunting, and just everyday use.
This includes, not limited to, rain, mud, SNOW, (did I mention snow?) dry dusty, hot and humid conditions.
For me, these were recommend by my surgeon, whom also raises cattle, after I went through a medical condition, and surgery.
Now I HAD to make a change and continue to be aware, and take note of what is BEST for my feet/ankles/legs. I have a pair of "finally" worn out Danners outside, next to the "small barn" between the wagon wheels, planted with fake flowers, purchased in 1984, for farm decor/art.
Oh, with medical bills, that continue, I simply could not afford what I am accustomed to.
That being Danner, Red Wing, and for darn sure, custom Russel Bird Hunting Boots.
Keep in mind, as most know, I am not tactical, instead practical, and many know of me, my past, and so forth.
Just these Herman Survivors, for me are proven, fit me, and for me, a medical concern, and for about $60 work for me.
The reality is, me being me, and having spent a lifetime working with others, something affordable, off the shelf, proven, is needed. Be it guns, loads, knives, boots, etc.
