Rossi Boots are great!

I've got a pair of Rossi Vision 811 boots which I've had for about 5 years. They suit my needs are very comfortable (have the same sole as standard Rossi workboots) and reasonably waterproof. Pretty much road oriented bbots but as I say they suit my needs. On the Scrapheap Adventure Ride at Easter, the soft rubber cushion material between the actual sole and the inner sole began distintegrating and the soles started to part ways with the boots. Duct tape held them together till I got home.

Long story short, I rang Rossi in S.A to see if they could replace the soles; they said "sure we can put new soles on them, we might even do it under warranty" so I sent the boots away. Lo and behold they arrived back yesterday with new soles fitted and an invoice for $0.00!!

So, a shameless plug for an Australian made product and good old fashioned customer service.
