Google fucked up. That sort of BS is why everyone left altavista. Who will be next?
Pros: Absurdly fucking comfortable. Materials seem sturdy enough.
Cons: Looks like the soles were hacked into shape by a 10 year old wielding a razor blade who hadn’t had a piss break in three days; even the leather’s nicked in a couple places. No apparent way for them to actually be resoled, they appear to be simply glued on. Loose thread ends run rampant. Total lack of attention to detail, especially considering they’re in the same price range as the sorts of construction boots I generally buy.
All in all I suppose I’ll get a couple or three years out of them anyway, but would be surprised if they manage to approach the 12 year stretch my oldest Cats made it through. Such are the perils of shopping online.
Ordered some new boots off uscav.com saturday around noonish. Up until this morning despite the claimed availability being in stock, ships in 24-48hrs, the status on the order page had gone from ‘pending’ to ‘backordered’. But alas, as of checking 5 mins ago it says they were shipped on the 3rd and I have a tracking #. They should be here wednesday.
So apparently the 48 hours means *business* days, or they actually were backordered and I got lucky. I don’t know and don’t really care, it’ll just be nice to have boots that aren’t covered in paint again.
