New Balance website has 'em on clearance for $59.95!

I have a pair of OTB Bushmasters I'm pretty happy with, but the Bootistans are waterproof.

Any reviews of this boot?

AWESOME!!! Ordered me a pair.

thanks!

I ordered a pair, looks like a good boot.

Then I searched online, saw quite a few places listing them at $199ish, and several places blowing them out at $60ish. They must have been discontinued.

I like my Bushmasters a lot –– great warm weather boot. I suspect the Bootistans will be of similar quality, and if so, $60 is a hell of a deal.

Thanks! I ordered a pair and will return a much cheaper generic pair that my non-boot-savvy mom got me. I'm excited to get them.

I found them HERE also for $60 ($65 shipped) in both colors.

Thanks pair ordered...am interested how they compare to my lowa desert elite's

I bought a pair of these about six months ago and I believe they are the best boots I've ever had. After years of Vasque & Asolo boots I think I have good points of comparison. It really sucks that the browns in my size are sold out and it looks like they're being discontinued.

Just so you know get an extra 10% + free shipping with code: retailmenot. That is at the new balance store. Mine was 58.98 with tax and shipping.

How do these size compared to say, Danners?

Do they run smaller or bigger?

Thanks.

About to pull the trigger on these. Do the sizes run about the same as their regular athletic shoes?
Link Posted: 12/26/2011 8:18:42 PM EDT
I wear a 13, and my Bushmasters fit very true to size. I found the one pair of Lowas I tried to be very short and narrow.

Thanks for the heads-up! Ordered a pair. I have two pair of OTB Ferdelance boots that I picked up when that model was discontinued. They're fantastic. I suspect the Bootistans will be as well.

Got mine on the way. Thanks.

Mine were just delivered. Fits my normal athletic shoe size just fine. Quality is excellent at first appraisal.

Thanks for that, mine were $58.44 shipped with tax. Awesome deal.

Thank you for the heads up. I already have them in brown/black, so these will work nice. The boots do fit true to size and are a great waterproof boot.
Link Posted: 12/30/2011 2:51:49 PM EDT
Got em'. Definitely a heavy duty set of ass-kicking boots. they'll need some breaking in.
Link Posted: 1/4/2012 7:51:43 AM EDT
Got mine in today. Damn these are nice boots. For $60.00 to my door, I am gonna get another pair to put in reserve.
Link Posted: 1/4/2012 1:15:45 PM EDT
Got mine today and they seem like some great boots! Unfortunately I need to get them a half size smaller; Since I don't but shoes often I didn't realize the ones I'm wearing now run small. So it'll cost me an extra $7 shipping, no big deal.

Got mine finally. Look good. Looking forward to seeing how they hold up.
Link Posted: 1/5/2012 1:44:28 PM EDT
Mine arrived yesterday, and I wore them in to work last night (was on a plain clothes detail) and did a bunch of walking.

I like them quite a lot. I'll be ordering another pair as a spare.

I need to order a pair, my bushmasters are built like a tank and incredibly comfortable

OTB imo makes the absolute best boots.

So the bushmasters are pretty well built/hold up?

Next time I need a new pair of boots I'd really like a set that are non waterproof/quick drying AND durable.
Link Posted: 1/5/2012 5:22:31 PM EDT
I got mine today. Is anyone else walking around the house with them on right now?

Just ordered a pair as well, but the retailmenot code didn't work, unfortunately. Good lookin' out, though.
