Most folks would consider me a city slicker, because I grew up in city and urban enviroments most of my life. My family roots however come from rural northern woods of northern Michigan, where we hunt, fish, cut firewood, haul stumps, trees, and pretty much love the clean open sky of cool Michigan nights. We leave the farming to the downstaters. Any how I bought my 1st pair of Justin's last November of 2010 because some farm boy friends in college had some. I'd always had cowboy boots, but nothing fancy like Justin. Because money is tight I saved a little at a time. That day when I walked into my local retailer and pulled my size off the shelf and spent a little extra and bought a Justin by Milano hat too, and came home with them, was just like Christmas. I wear them literally every day except at work where I wear my Justin workboots steel toes, and when I'm coaching the sport I coach after work. My desire it to move back to rural Michigan after I retire, and buy a truck, and 5th wheel and travel the country working volunteer work at camps, and any other places that need a handy man to get projects done. You bet I'll be wearing Justins every day. Justin was generous enough to honor me as fan of the month on their Facebook page. I've enjoyed reading the Standard of the West: History of Justin Boots. Good book. Makes me appreciate my boots even more.
