In a recent post, I acknowledged that I had been one of the lucky numbers drawn by Rebecca Garlock over on the OBN for a new pair of Chippewa boots. As Rebecca said in her post on the contest, "The winners selected will receive this new pair of boots from Chippewa to use and abuse over the next several months in the outdoors. Theirs to keep, in exchange for a review to be posted on the OBN."
Actually, the Review will be written on my blog here and linked too from the OBN when I have completed it for all my fellow BlogBuddies to read. Just wanted to let everyone know that the boots arrived today in the mail and I have officially began the Use and Abuse period.
First day impression: Looks like a very solid boot. Happy they shipped in 1/2 sizes. My 9 1/2's fit perfectly. Felt quite comfortable even though they did "not" get any "Pond Stalkin" in today. I guarantee that I will put them to use and put them through some abuse before I offer a final review on them. Winter is here so I will be getting them wet and my feet cold. So we will see....................
I suspect that the final review with more product detail will show up some time this summer 2014.
