"Best Buy" BootsIn your last issue, Richard Jacobs, Beaver Dam, Wis., complained about boots that cost a bundle but last only six months. He's not alone. I've bought name brand boots for as much as $150 and cheap foreign ones for as little as $40 with the same results û poor quality.
There might be hope, though. Wesco Shoe Co. (Box 607, Scappoose, Oregon 97056) makes boots to fit and they also rebuild their own boots when they get worn. They're not cheap but I figure they're worth it if they'll last three times what store-bought boots cost.
Another similar company is Bailey's Logging Supply Co. (Box 550, Laytonville, Calif. 95454).
Both these companies specialize in logger's cork boots and also make regular boots of all kinds.
Both companies have catalogs you can order. (Elmer Pinkerton, Elmwood, Neb.)
