RE: Ariant boot quality

Just bought a new pair of Araits after beating the first pair to death over
four years.  That is two years longer than any pair of boots has ever lasted
for me.  Should be interesting to see if the new ones hold up to the quality
of the old ones.  So, far, they look okay...........
