Thanks Justin Boots,

Well, I just passed 5 years on my job and was thinking about how the good Lord has blessed me with employment. I had lost my job with an aftermarket forklift parts supplier after the economy slow down in 2007. I was praying for guidance, equipment and an open door for the future.
While unemployed I would wake up early, sometimes two or three oclock in the morning and do job searches on the internet. During that time I would tune in to the Midnight Trucker radio show. When listening one night I heard the commercial to call in and tell what was on the front page of the Wall Street Journal to win a free pair of Justin Boots.
I called in and wala! I won, and the show mailed me a certificate for a pair of Justin boots. I made a selection and mailed it in. I usually do not order shoes by mail but thought it was worth a try for a free pair of boots. Well I found out that the Lord was equipping me for the upcoming work and He included The Wall street Journal, Justin Boots, and the Midnight Trucker radio show in the process.
I received the boots (an 11EE 4760 High top pull up work boot Brown). I received an offer that I accepted as a field permit inspector covering three countys (Nassau, Duval, and Clay) in north Florida.
After five years of employment I am on my second or third pair of Justin Boots. The boots have been a great blessing because many times I am working on the side of the road in tall grass and no telling what I may encounter, from fire ants to snakes to stickers, mud and clay. I keep the boots polished which makes it easy to spray mud and grime off with the water hose. Many times I am on site for directional drilling operations that includes the most slimy drill mud you have ever seen, Bentonite. I avoid the slime when possible but even drill mud will wash off of these boots. I have been known for my boots in the field and have shown many co-workers how I tuck my pant leg into the boot when I am in the stickers and beggar-lice to avoid contact with my pants leg. The stickers will not cling to the boots. This saves me a lot of cleanup time when I get back into my truck.
I wanted to give you feedback on a job well done.
Justin boots; has won a lifelong customer and I have purchased other Justin boots as a result of this quality product. As a quality inspector for over twenty years in the rail, and now roadway, industries I can with assurance state Well done. You guys at Justin Boots make a quality product.

And to the good Lord: Thanks for providing the tools before the need.
