For many years I would wear my old men\'s size 6 Kodiak. They were just great and they served a purpose. I have gone through 2 pairs in the past 20 years. I had no idea that Kodiak produces boots for women. I just received this model and put them on right away, and I find them supremely comfortable. They look great and I am utterly elated.!!! The Nu buck leather is very appealing and the cushioned insole feels soft. There you have it... I might just have to start a collection of Kodiak boots now!!
