I found these in new, unused condition, during a recent move. Not sure if I actually bought them (Nor how much I may have spent, obviously); or, if they were a gift. I've literally only had them on for 15mins.in looking around online I noticed these boots are priced from $15 to as much as $60... For the same make & model. I also noticed that the same exact boot is sold under several 'brand names'. The only difference is the patch sewn to the tongue.in place of 'itasca', there is a different brand in it's stead. Even the 'thermo lite' and, 'thin insulation', below the brand name are exactly the same. Lacing/eyelets: same. Only a slight variation in the sole pattern, & bottom tread pattern. White tag on inside on tongues are identical to pics of the boots across all the brands. Reads: "stock#: 642057, name: ice breaker, size: — , man made materials, made in china".in new condition... Wearing boots around house; not even outside, yet; and the seams are already starting to split. I wonder if some sort of adhesive could be used along seams, to prevent further splitting. I may give 'em a couple coats of waterproof spray. Again, w/ the price ranging from $15 up to $60. I've barely used them and they're starting to fall apart. If you see a pair for $15, may be worth keeping by the door to run out in medium amounts of snow. However, if their over $20, i'd suggest you pass on 'em. If you do get them... Don't use them as your only, or regular/daily-wear boots. Even in the $30 to $50 range there are quite nice options.
