    Great boots! Most beautiful safety boot!!
    I ordered a custom version and when I got it, I really liked them! At first they are tough, but this is typical for such shoes. After a couple of weeks, they became very comfortable. Metal cup is not felt at all. Leather is very good, black full-grain, 2mm thick. The weight of a pair of size 6uk is 2200 grams.
    Thanks to Libs for her help in choosing the size, and I am very grateful to all the employees of the factory.

    I got my 79X boots late last year and I wanted to review them after lots of use. They are fantastic. Rugged, extremely comfortable and becoming more so as they continue to mold themselves to my foot. I’ve remained dry and warm in very wet conditions and they’s served me well in a couple of toe cruncing situations where both they and I have emerged unscathed. Dropping bricks and heavy beams. Well worth waiting for and the advice on sizes and interest shown by the team at William Lennon is fantastic.
