Van Gorkom lightweight but sturdy hiking boots, good for the trail or the office and include custom hand made orthotic footbeds, all made for the feet that will wear them.  These are going to a business man in Mexico.

I just finished these light weight hiking boots today.  Good looking, rugged leather, inside and out,  hiker soles, all custom made for the feet that will wear them and including  custom orthotic footbeds, too!  All for CAD $325.  Made to be resoled from my tiny shop on Vancouver Island, off the West Coast of British Columbia, Canada.
