I'm definitely considering getting a pair of the black ones, but am not sure if I can justify the price right now.
For me it's between these 2 boots: the black dayton's and the LL Bean Katahdin (which I've had my eye on for a while now). If it wasn't for the weak CAD dollar, and the fact that LL Bean charges 18% duty, plus shipping, etc. on orders to Canada, I'd probably go for the Katahdin, but they'd probably come out closer to $250 CAD after all fees and conversion. I can't decide between the two!!
