Gokey Custom Lightweight Upland Boot

A 33% lighter version of the Classic, this men's hunting boot is constructed to the same exacting standards as any Gokey boot, but the upper is made of lightweight ballistic nylon. The boot is fully leather lined for comfort, and the sole is a Goodyear lug-sole for superior traction. This is a great upland hunting boot with the incredible life expectancy of every quality Gokey hunting boot. Same lacing configuration as the Classic. Men's hunting boot available in brown with green ballistic nylon upper. Handmade in USA. Whole and half sizes: 6-15.Widths: A, B, C, D, E, EE, EEE, 4E, 5E, and 6E.

"Six years ago, a friend gave me these boots as a hand-me-down. He had used them for about seven years prior to that. I am fortunate enough to get to guide upland bird hunting in the fall in Montana and I wear these boots at least twenty days a month. They have held up great. They are the ideal upland, dry weather boot. Unfortunately, they don't do well when it is wet, and I dread any time I have to wear a different boot. I even sent them back to Orvis when the sole had worn down and they did a great job refurbishing them."

"I purchased these boots last year and find them to be the most comfortable I have ever owned.
They are lightweight which is important to me as I am a mature outdoorsman. I'm sure they will last me the rest of my outdoor experiences.

"The Gokey Lightweight Upland boot used to be the best boot on the market. The boot broke in nicely and felt like a million dollars after hunting out in the field all day.
A couple of years ago they changed the sole on this great boot to a heavy lug sole and the boot has a whole new awkward,stiff,heavy,unbalanced feel to them.
When I contacted Orvis I was told that Goodyear discontinued the original sole. What a shame.
