Boots are made in Romania,( NOT CHINA) these boots are hi quality, well made sturdy, look and feel that way, My 3 year old Harley Davidson water proof boots turned to mush and the side zippers blew out in 2 years of limited use. A basic no frills design but are functional, traditional and simple. They have a gortex like liner. May be a little warm, but what do you expect with a water proof boot. They have a good grip of the road when you are stopped. And they post to the road when you plant your feet down.with little effort.
