Best boots EVER!!!
2346 Delta 6-Inch SZ Boot Review:
Perfect boot for work. The tread has awesome grip in the dirt and mud. I love the option to not lace boots to put on and off due to the quick access zipper port on the side... The boots were everything I hoped for.. thank you!!
Surprisingly comfortable!

I bought to go with the tux I had to buy for my performing group. Was very surprised when they turned out to be more comfortable than the sneakers I was wearing to rehearsals. Love 'em! #sweepstakes
