    Custom Boots - 2/8/2015

    Boots are custom made with measurements I sent in. They came back too large. I need to return them.

    Got one custom made zip one which is fantastic. Looks tough & wears comfortably! Also bought a pull on one. Is a little tight up top. Stilwell constructed. Wished they had made it slightly adjustable up top to cater for all calf sizes

    If You Could Only Have One Boot - 2/20/2012

    The Custom Gokey Snakeproof Boot is the finest all purpose boot ever made....has been for decades. I suggest 13 inches in height. Then you can wear them anywhere or do anything in them....great motorcycle boot, especially in the woods and on rough trails. Great travel boot no matter the climate or time of year. I would suggest you put a Vibram 100 sole and heel on them. If you are going to be hunting, hiking or motorbike riding in snake country get the Turtle Skin leggings to go with them...makes the boot purchase very versitle and more lightweight, plus you get more coverage than the standard 16" boot provides. If your going to be in a lot of water bring along the Le Chameau latex rubber zip boot and you will have all the bases covered no matter what you end up doing!
