You could say that about a lot of boots/shoes, no? I mean, really, how many different ways are there to make engineer boots? And they don't tan the leather themselves, do they?
You're paying partly for the materials, but the bulk of the price boils down to how much the maker's labor is worth.
I dunno, but people are buying them.
I may be buying a pair if I have the opportunity to get fitted. I hate boots that don't fit.
I've seen your posts on the Lofgren boots all over the forum-sphere. You went from saying they're made at the same factory as the Lone Wolf boots to now saying they're different, but "basically the same". Well, of course, they're "basically the same", they're both engineer boots! It's not like the Lone Wolf are bad boots, by any stretch of the imagination. Another fine option would be MOTOR. However, the Lofgrens are superior to both; both in my opinion as well as that of anyone I know who has inspected them (without some ulterior motive). Anyone who has picked them both up can see the obvious differences, including you, if you've actually done so. Whether those differences are worth the price difference is up to the buyer.
