I do demonstration Blacksmithing at our local museum and fall fair. We always wear period correct clothing; so when an elderly friend had a pair of Dayton loggers caulked boots in their garage sale, I bought them and never even haggled over the price. Her husband had bought them back in 1950. Other than some worn out stitching and heavy wear on the caulks, they are in great shape. I have never worn a more comfortable pair of boots. Excellent craftsmanship to have lasted 60 years!
