I was given my first pair of Labonville Kevlar boots in 1998 while working on a logging crew clearing ice storm damage from a ski mountain. Almost 20 years later I am on my 4th pair. They might seem pricy but after trying numerous cheaper big name brands, Chips, Tims etc, I've found no other boot comes close to the Labonville brand for comfort and durability. Worn through all New England seasons, these boots withstand incredible abuse, and are more comfortable than anything I've ever worn. People often ask what they are, and I've turned more than a few guys on to the brand. I used to travel all the way to Gorham NH just to get the boots, thankful they opened a location in Hooksett, as pair #4 is still hanging in there but 5 yrs of daily wear takes its toll!
