    I have trouble with image hosts at work, so these will have to suffice. These shoes are the real deal. They are built like a tank.

    Definitely built like tanks, mine have Vibram commando soles that add to that feeling. Fritzl was very good at working out what size I should have. It feels like these will become some of if not my most comfortable shoes when they are broken in. It might take a while though with these soles, but its worth it for sure. Edit: They wear like gunboats should, very solidly [​IMG]
