The manufacturer really cut many corners... as well as quality. Made In U.S.A doesn't mean what it used to....
I've been wearing western boots for over 30 years and have worn a variety of brands.
These boots look nice, but appearances are deceiving. I feel Double H sacrificed quality by omitting traditional durable components which are hallmarks to a respectable grade of western boots. The price is less than most major boot brands--and you get less, I'm just glad I bought these on close-out.
-The saddle vamp is only for appearance and is not an extra thickness of leather to protect the boots from spur-strap wear.
-They're only a single piece of leather, stitched to overlap the vamp for appearance.
-Vertical leather piping on the boot-shaft was omitted, replacing it with a narrow strip of coarse cloth to the interior shaft seam.
-The gel-foam insoles feel soft and comfortable initially, but end up making the boots too hot to wear for more than a few hours. This seems much cheaper than the traditional leather counterparts.
-The spur shelf appears to be a cheap plastic partial-insert rather than part of full-welt construction.
-The heel counter sandwiches what feels like a flimsy synthetic piece rather than a heavier piece of leather stitched to the inside.
-The heel cap is visibly thinner, soft and not very durable grade of rubber.
-The bison leather seems thin--I have a bison-leather wallet which has more durable components.
