User Review: Van Gorkom Men's Custom Hiking Boots
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $1,600
The quality of these boots are matched by Charles' ability to fit people that can't find comfortable hiking boots. High quality, well made boots that fit right out of the box.
- They looked way better then the pictures online
- Incredible quality
---Perfect fit right out of the box and my feet are never comfortable in store bought shoes. In my case, there was not a boot company that makes hiking boots narrow enough for me.
---The lacing system really holds your foot in place where most shoes feel like they don't fit correctly and your foot slides around in the shoe.
Quality & Look
---When you have a large foot there can be that "frankenboots" type look; Charles and I had a laugh over that comment before he set out to make them. I can tell you they are the best looking hiking boots I've seen with leather that is of the finest quality.
---There is no lack of quality anywhere on the boots.
---The boots aren't cheap and the decision to spend the money has to be made on the confidence level you feel. Talking to Charles before ordering helped me decide he is an expert and I was in good hands.
---I can tell you this with out question. If you were able to put on a pair of his boots and wear them for 30-min, you would never question the cost. You would make the purchase because of their comfort.
