The expert said the boot lining was made from one-year-old leather that comes from a cow up to two years old.

“There is not really a hood at the heel, so you can slip on your heel when you first start wearing it because this leather is really smooth,” he said.

‘In general it is a really good boat, I am quite impressed.

“But there were a few things that I wanted them to be a bit different. I wish there were no composite materials in the heel pile … just picky.

‘Other than that, it’s a solid boot. I don’t really have many complaints, except it’s so hard to tear apart, it took me two hours. “
