User Review: Herman Settler
Materials: leather upper Cheap soft rubber sole
Break-in Period: less then 2 months
Weight: 7 lbs
Price Paid: over$50 w/ tax
I've been faithfully purchasing Herman boots (Brawny model) for 8 years. They would last between 1 to 1 1/2 years. For some reason they are no longer available.
Most men once you have a good thing change is more painful then pulling teeth. I purchased these boots due to the name on the box. They looked a little lighter duty but I had no idea how poorly they held up. After 2 1/2 MONTHS the sole is wore out and they are cracking right at the bend point at the ball of my foot. These boots would be good for someone who doesn't plan on actually working in them but adding them to their shoe collection because they are a good looking boot but not durable enough to wear daily.
I hope this helps the next person from experiencing the frustration I'm going through trying to get these replaced through the store or manufacturer.
