    Best boots I've ever owned.

    After 20+ years in Red Wings, I'm used to a few weeks of break in. Wore these 12 hours straight doing fabrication the first day I got them and despite a little pressure in the arch, they became my every day work boot immediately. The smaller speed hooks are perfect, in the first two weeks I haven't had to retie my laces yet. And goes without saying the Bison leather is about the coolest look I've seen.

    Worth It!

    I have extremely wide and flat feet. 11.5 8E and high arches murder my feet. I bought an off the shelf pair of Forefronts just to check them out and the arch was aggressive enough it cause the arch in my right foot to pop. So i returned them and worked with JK to make a custom pair for me. They dropped the arches. I went from not being able to wear them for 5 minutes to wearing them all day every day out of the box. On top of that i was having pain in my right knee and within a few days it went away. Unfortunately my feet are weird, the left boot broke in fine. The right boot the arch was still a little too aggressive and after a month my toes started to go numb. So i got to thinking and with the wedge sole there is nothing but solid (ok it's rubber) material between the arch and the floor. I could see the wear on the bottom of the boot under my arch. So i took a sander and started to remove material slowly under where i could see it abrading under my arch. I was finally able to get that arch to break in. These get a 5 star from me, JK was extremely accommodating, the boots are build fantastically well, they provide tons of support, lots of stability climbing around on equipment. It's not JK's fault my feet are weird. I do wish they would offer a service like 3d foot scans and imprints, i'd pay darn good money for something like that.

    With the wait

    I’ve had them for 3 weeks, wearing them 12+ hours a day. Break in has been pretty easy so far, no hot spots. The build quality, fit and finish are all what you’d expect in the price point. The best looking PNW boot with a wedge sole by far.
