The most comfortable boots I ever owned!
I have been seeing ads for Overland on Facebook after I googled "sheep skin leather jackets" one day. The truth is, I'm skeptical of most product advertising on Facebook as much of it tend to be of sites wanting to strip you from you hard earned dollars. Nonetheless, I went to Overland.com and did some research and noted that it's a company that has been in business for many, many years and reviews raved about the products and the customer service. Since I was about to spend over 1000 dollars in a jacket and boots, I wanted to make sure I was dealing with a legit organization.
I ordered both the Men's Hubert Wool-Lined Waterproof Leather Boots and the Classic Sheepskin B-3 Bomber Jacket with Detachable Hood - Tall. Since this review is for the boots, let's start with that. The construction of these boots is flawless. You can tell that a lot of craftmanship went into building this product. The leather is strong, yet smooth, it's not a product that feels cheap. Every single detail, from the stitching, laces, the metallic eyelets, and side zipper are simply what you would expect from a quality pair of shoes.
The distressed look on these boots is on point, making you feel like these boots can take you through the toughest winters without even sweating it. Now, I left the lining for last. O.M.G.! The lining on these things is a dream! Such soft wool! I also did a test of trying to pull it with my fingers to see if it would come apart or shred and nada. It stayed firm in its place which gave me peace of mind, because I did not want the material to lint off on my sox with every use. This is also a very warm and comfortable wool! Your feet will thank you after a full day of wearing them.
I am on my way to wintery Fargo, ND as I type this review and I am expecting these boots to perform. I may update this review with my experience, but so far, so good!
