some will pamper them more because they paid more for them. not too many are going to wear $650 shell boots out in the snow, or to dig up trees, or to stand on the street all day with the orange vest holding the "SLOW" sign.
great thanks, you helped alot ... yeah i was hoping it was just the material of shell cordovan that was to be more pampered. but i figured that these could be dealt with more "realistically"
i understand the argument that if you were going to be really rough whats the point of spending 450+ on these, but im leaning more towards if these will really last a long time why NOT spend that much. those wovlerines 1000 are 350 and redwings range upwards of 250. so i would spend the extra 100+ for these for the quality, look, and last ...
