The pair’s leather-like upper, thick wedge outsole, moc-style toe, and 7-eyelet lacing makes them near dead-ringers for a slew of (much) higher priced picks. “I normally wear Red Wing, Danner, Gold Fox and other expensive boots so my bar is set pretty high,” wrote reviewer Jeremy. “Having said that, I still say that these Portland [boots] are worth every step you will take in them.”
