Great American Made Boots, You Gotta Love Them

Bought these full leather and leather lined boots here in Denver, from an old Western Wear and Boot Shop on South Broadway, unfortunately long gone, after the infamous Thanksgiving 1983 massive snow storm here that clogged our roads, sidewalks, everywhere for a very long time. I cannot remember the manufacturer... they could be original Wolverines, maybe someone knows.

20191201_104111.jpgThey still fit me like a glove, treat with Obenaufs, before that, Lexol. I wear them regularly whenever we have snow and this season so far, been worn a lot. The sole is a gum type, very grippy original Vibram that is incredibly long lasting. These boots are almost thirty seven years old. Kudos to old world American Workmanship. They were fairly costly back in 1983 and I got my money's worth, that's for sure.

They still look pretty good for their age. You certainly did get your money’s worth and they are still going.
 
Double checked closely... they are in fact Wolverines. The boots just simply power on, through all the shoveling of the snow, wear them anytime I need protection from the wet and cold. Btw, they are also insulated. The only other pair of boots I still have that are older is a pair of Luccheses, that fit me like a glove, also fully leather lined, bought in 1979.
