User Review: Herman Men's Survivor
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $125 in 1977
The only thing remaining of the true Herman Survivor is the name.
- Used to be the best
- Now just cheap Chinese crap
Have read numerous reviews at numerous websites and have also experienced myself. Still own a pair of Hermans Survivors from 1977 and they are still fine.
Unfortunately, Walmart bought the name in the last decade and turned an icon into garbage. The boot line sold there is nothing like the original Hermans — very cheap quality materials, polyurathane soles. A cheap, Chinese throwaway boot that's only purpose is hitting a certain price point.
They may be OK if you only need a boot to last for a couple of days, otherwise, look elsewhere.
