Awesome Boots - Michael Miller, Elgin, TX
 "These are awesome boots.  Rugged, comfortable...I work in an environment that is hard on boots, scuffs, weld slang, weld splatter, grinding sparks, and shavings.  I have no doubt these boots will last a long time.  Also, thanks to Iron Age for supporting Skills USA."

"Never been into lace-ups before, but I'm liking these. The feel like sneakers. They're also fairly tall so the sparks don't catch you. I've had that happen before, and it hurts."
