On 11/21/2012, I was walking through a supermarket parking lot. 'Being vision and hearing impaired, I did not notice avehicle driving up behind me. Theypassed me on theleftside and made a sharp turn acrossin front of me. When they did so, they ran over the first three - four inches of my left foot. The car was a Cadillac. The Ariat Boot which has NO steel toe, protected my foot so well that although the tire-tread of the car were clearly visible on the toe of my boot, I received only a slight sprain. In fact, I walked to the remaining distance to the store, to my wife's truck, into the ER, to the police station, and 1 - 8 miles every day since. I bought the boots five years ago and they wear like they are brand new. Although they are somewhat heavy for a hiking boot, I have no problem puttitng on the miles. They are comfortable, stable, and extremely durable as my experience shows. Thank you Ariat and keep up the good work!!!
