- Why did you choose these boots?

I had never worn engineer boots before, so I had a strong interest in them.

To be honest, I remember that I was worried about the purchase for about a year. The vehicle I was riding at that time was an off-road motorcycle, and I was wondering if I could own boots in this price range for motorcycle use in the first place.

-How did you feel when you actually used it?

I've worn it almost every day since I bought it. I feel that engineer boots have a mysterious presence that establishes a person's individuality.

After all, I wore different motocross boots when I was riding off-road, and I often wore jeans in everyday motorcycle scenes, so I had almost no chance to worry about compatibility with the type of vehicle. bottom.

The 3.0mm thick leather that I felt was too hard when I first started wearing them became more familiar as I put them on, and now I feel that they fit better than any other boots I own.

I also like the fact that the brass buckle gradually darkens over time, but after spending 14 years with it, it became normal and I fell in love with it again and again.

Do you feel that you like your daily life with engineer boots that have become your own shape?

These boots are made of extra-thick leather, so they are not recommended for those looking for lightness, but those who are looking for authentic engineer boots should definitely know about them.
