I concur, but I also would like to recommend Chippewa:
Great USA hand made boots -- I love them.
I have a pair for the motorcycle and another for work. When I took them in
to the shoe repairman, even he was impressed (damage was from a high-speed
take-down on the Harbor Fwy here in Los Angeles -- elderly woman whacked me
in rush hour traffic).
You will not be disappointed, please trust me on this one.
