A great, solid boot. All function, and quality you can trust - Made in USA. Noticeably used, sure. Worn-out? Lumpy? Make-do? No way!
As a super-frugal citizen, I've thought the cheap boots at Wally-Mart are "OK". You probably know their "FallApart" brand. :p They are not OK. These, however, are honest quality I expect will last many years. I couldn't even _look_ at a Vibram-soled boot at the W-M for the price these folks ask for these.
Finally, wearing USGI boot socks + Rothco "Huskie" wool socks, my feet measured 9.5W, I found that I fit _perfectly_ into 8.5W. So, they might run a bit large - perhaps the G.I.s wear even thicker socks?
Bottom line: I couldn't be happier.
