No Vans this year =(
 
Chinese factory went bust. No boots this year. Fawk, had my heart set on a pair of Sequal's. Just when you finally find something that fits those damned communists got go and cancel Christmas.

Looks like a new pair of 32's then,

Yup, we'll see if they actually produce next year. Also seems to me like it's possible theyre waiting to see what the market will be like next year. A lot of brands have really been struggling, it's hard to keep small and big brands going in this economy even if sales appear to be decent.

Been on my V-66 for 2 seasons, and still love em.

smell terrible, but nothing fell apart or wore out.

Simple lace up boots that fit my feet. Decent enough tread for hiking, and comfy enough to drive in.

The sequal was going to have the adjustable stiffness inserts in the tongues which is where my 66's were weak, too darn soft.

Amen! I loved my v66s for the first ~7 days in them, then they turned to mush.
