Proofing spray ?

When I put them on I almost hoped that they wouldn't fit me, so that sending them back would be an easy decision. For my feet these were the hardest to get into boots I ever owned. Even with a shoehorn. But once on, they were actually quite good. Snug but not unbearable uncomfortable. I'm sure once worn in these will be very good.

Had them standing on a desk for a couple of hours then, telling myself that they are not worth it. Finally I put proofing spray on them and wore them to run some errands in the rain. They didn't get wet inside.

GT's are tanks compared to Buttero or Loake. Wear them hard and they'll get better with age.

My black cherry GTs are phenomenal.  I've had mine for nearly 6 years, worn them hard, and they look great and have performed phenomenally well.  The quality is there, trust me.
