These boots are a little expensive and hard to find, after all, they're made in Israel with leather imported from Borneo. I found mine in New York. But they are just awesome tough boots. Since many in the Israeli military wear them, they are excellent for rough, rocky terrain. They are absolutely waterproof, sandproof, etc. A must have for any serious outdoorsman.
