Wow, what a rort. I'd be asking for a refund as that is deceptiveI'm about to buy some more boots, likely Comfort Craftsman or Gardener boots and one thing I'm looking for is that they are made in Australia.
Visited the Filson factory in Seattle and the Bellingham Outlet store over the weekend. Bought a couple of items, including a tote bag, for the wife's birthday but nothing for myself which is a turn-up for the books as I usually find something or other that interests me. Is it possible that I have enough/too much Filson gear ?
They can indeed be worn as a casual boot and IMHO they are not truly a heavy duty or winter boot.We may all have different opinions on what heavy duty is, but for me the construction is simply not that of a heavy duty boot They can be somewhat prepped for winter wear but are not insulated and by default come with a plain leather sole which can be a liability on a slick surface with that is wet or icy.
Wow, that's sad to hear. I've always found them to be very helpful and courteous. I'll be back in the UK sometime this year and need to get a shoe resewn so I guess I'll find out their level of interest then.
