Pictures are worth a thousand words. What you're seeing is a pair of Timberland Pro work boots that are several years old. They are a 3 season waterproof boot. I wear them more than any of my other boots in Spring Fall and Winter. I have stood in muck and water for entire days and my feet stay warm and dry and they are comfortable. The soles still have a lot of lug left and the uppers have no cracks in the leather anywhere. When I kill the sole they will be resoled. If I would bother to clean them up with something other than a hose they would have a helluva good looking patina and would look good on the street.
A friend of mine buys Wolverine exclusively. He can kill a pair of boots from other brands in six months. His Wolverine boots are a year and a half old now and still going strong. Yeah, I don't think there will be a problem with the Heritage line at all. They should live up to my expectations easily.
We're going to do a Style Forum exclusive for a while on these boots with prices that'll be killer. I think we might even do a pre order thing kinda like what we will do with the Apolis Filson bag.
