Rated 4 out of 5 by lwaldron Great, So Far
Belleville has stopped manufacturing their model 500 Marine Corps combat boot. Since I couldn't buy a pair of those, I looked around and picked these Timberland boots.
Since I wear a wide size, Shepler's had to back-order my pair. That means they took a little longer to arrive then they would have if I had "normal" feet. The boots arrived in good condition, and fit correctly.
I've had them about a month, now, and they're breaking in well. They seem to be of sturdy construction. They're comfortable to wear. I haven't had a chance to go stomping in mud puddles, yet, so I can't really rate how waterproof they are.
I think they look pretty sharp. My only complaint, so far, is that I wish Timberland made them with a boot-strap at the back, so they'd be easier to pull onto my feet.
