Georgia work boot update

Georgia boot update

One of the Georgia work boots started leaking. I make a point not to submerge them in water, but today some wet grass was enough to make one of my socks damp.

I'm pretty disappointed in the longevity. It was a wet year, which meant most of the time during this 11 month trial I was wearing my Muck boots, which are still going strong, and there was no walking around construction sites with nails pointing up.

Maybe the next brand I try will come closer to feeling like a fair deal?

3 years is an impressive run...and they look extra sturdy, but mail order means I can't try it on first.

They will take returns , I have done so when they came the wrong size , they are very comfortable though heavy , army boots are made for an army to march in not for looks , I oil mine every 2 months or so with a mix of bee wax candle stubs and lard they remain waterproof after 3 years of ware , I bought 3 pairs at the same time , the last pair will probably out live me !
