I've worn numerous shoes and boots with wedge...
By: Ron Russell
I've worn numerous shoes and boots with wedge soles from various makers in the past and found them to be very comfortable.

The first thing I noticed upon opening the box was the color, a warm "honey brown" which looks quite attractive with jeans and with khakis. The leather feels impressively thick and supple to the touch. Yay SPR!

Further examination revealed fabric lining inside around the toe and instep, and a padded insole and padded tongue, both covered with breathable moisture-absorbing material. The portion surrounding the ankle is unlined. A nylon pull strap is firmly attached behind the ankle. The wedge sole is of a neutral khaki color, and has the words "Georgia Boot" and "Oil Resistant" molded on the bottom, along with a shallow chevron tread pattern. Although soft, the sole appears intended to wear a long time, with a generous 5/8" thickness under the ball of the foot, increasing to slightly over 1" under the heel. If the soles ever do wear out, they are replaceable by any competent cobbler.

The laces are quite thick, and woven with alternating dark brown and light brown bands, reminding me of an attractive pattern seen on some snakes. They thread through four sets of brass eyelets, and one set of brass "speed hooks".

Trying the boots on gives a very good first impression of comfort. I can't remember the last time any shoe or boot felt this good "out of the box". The fit is good around the arch and heel, and roomy up front, with space to wiggle ones toes. They fit well with hiking socks, such as Thorlo, SmartWool, or Wigwam.

I immediately went outside and mowed a large portion of my back yard, taking about an hour. I proceeded to wear the boots until retiring for bed. Over the next two days, I wore them all day while running errands, mowing the rest of the yard, working on the car in the driveway, and other tasks. No pinching, chafing or discomfort of any kind was experienced. As Steve Martin used to say in one of his standup routines, "I've got.....HAPPY FEET!"

Walking on hard surfaces, the heel can be felt to compress a little, as well as the insole, absorbing almost all shock which might otherwise reach the foot. In addition to no shock, there is almost no sound generated by the action of walking. One just strolls along in almost total silence. Perhaps these would be a good choice for a private investigator engaged in stealthy surveillance?

I think Georgia could sell a great many more of these if they offered them in additional colors, perhaps a darker brown, and/or black, and market them as an "urban" boot, rather than only a farm and ranch workboot. Overall, their styling is very similar to the 6" Dr. Martens 0939, both having a similar texture on the leather and cushy outer soles which absorb shock.

I am also a former Dr. Martens owner, and wore the same pair of D.M.s for several years. While not intending to "bash" Dr. Martens, I will say that I find the Georgia boot to offer superior comfort. Some advantages which I feel the Georgia boot offers over the D.M. include:
1) Georgia boot SPR leather is softer to start with, no break in required.
2) Georgia boot has padded insole, D.M doesn't (in styles 1460 and 0939).
3) Georgia boot fits better according to marked sizes, and is available in half-sizes, D.M. isn't. If you need a half-size in a Doc, you must buy the next full size larger, and then purchase an insole or wear extra-thick socks, or even two pairs of socks (actual recommendations by a clerk in a Doc Marten-only shoe store in Oak Park, Illinois).
4) Georgia boot is resoleable locally, D.M. isn't.

In sum, the Georgia 6" SPR boot offers excellent quality workmanship, a high standard of comfort, and, in my opinion, good looks. While sold primarily as a work boot, they are also great for casual wear with jeans or khakis. They COULD be the only boots you need to own.
