I am a longtime friend (hey lady) and fan of Ranch Road. I am not fancy and neither are the Boondockers... They are light and the laces allow for versatility. Laced lightly they lounge around house or office all day, tighten them up for real work or long days on foot. Build quality is dependable and I have no doubt they will take a few re-soles before I let them go-go.
I fell in love with these Boondockers at first sight. When I saw an excellent deal, I knew I had to get them. The boots fit perfect, looks rugged and classy. I wore these only a couple of times, and I don't think I'll need a break-in period; the boots a super comfortable. Thanks, Ranch Road team - You make AWESOME boots.
Purchased Brogan Original and I was so impressed with the quality and fit I thought if 1 pair is good 2 must be better. Ordered a pair of Boondocker and I was not disappointed, in fact I was more impressed with this pair. The boots are great, the fit is great and the company is great. May be time for another pair.
I would recommend the boondockers to anyone! Rough-out means smooth leather inside - very comfortable and easy to put on and off. Note: these boots look 5 years old right out of the box. Water darkens the color but they brush out back to normal color. They are rugged and that's why you want them. Some instructions on care of roughouts from RR would be nice. Thank you for making these!
