Over the years I have had many "nice" looking pairs of boots, but I will never have a pair that is as beautiful and as durable as my Justin full sea turtle boots! After 40 plus years of wear, and many sets of soles, they are still a beautiful pair of boots that have aged well....better than the owner has! I have had a lot of boots come and go through the years, but I can't imagine ever getting rid of my Justin sea turtle's!
I don't ride a horse I ride a steel horse..a Harley Davidson Iron. I have 15 pairs of boots all different colors, I match whatever I am wearing. My favs are the Caliente line I love color.
I go to a small work college, and bought my first pair of Justin’s to protect my feet while doing construction on campus. Little did I know, that a year later, they would serve as a barrier between my feet and a whole host of ghastly things lurking on the forest floors and city streets of Madagascar. During my time abroad I encountered: nipping feral dogs, 4 inch cactus spines, leeches falling from trees, the all too frequent pile of human feces, and the dreaded parasy (a parasite that burrows, and lays eggs in the tips of human toes). While the feet of my Chaco-wearing friends succumbed to these horrors, mine remained safely laced in my steel toed Justin’s. It was not my intention to wear my boots every day I was there, but my sandals fell apart one week into the trip and I had no means of replacing them. My Justin’s held up remarkably well for four months of being dragged on rocky trails, subjected to tropical humidity and frequently submerged in salt water. By the end of the trip, my feet were calloused and blistered, but nothing made its home in my skin and my boots seemed remarkably unscathed.
Now, almost two years later I have walked holes through the soles of both of my boots and am looking for a place to send them for repairs. Please let me know if you have any suggestions, I would love to have them fixed for my next tropical adventure.
Thanks for reading, and JB, keep up the good work.
PS- Please don’t judge me based on the length of my shorts, it was really damn hot.
