    That's some fantastic Chinese plastic.

    Not plastic, synthetic nubuck leather :0) Seriously I had one of their tents back a few years ago and a 25 cent clip broke and they sent me a new tent. I had trouble with a pair of brand new North Face pants and they treated me like a criminal, so at least I can vouch for their customer service.

    Yeah, you're not going to get quality leather boots for $25 unless it's a rare closeout price or something, and usually not even then. Synthetic uppers aren't always bad though, it just depends more on the quality of the material than it does with full grain or fairly thick top-grain leather.

    What I usually find more problematic on boots is when they have a two piece sole where the top is a foam-like material glued to a harder rubber tread. Maybe it's just the density difference or maybe it's eco-friendly glue but the sole on that type tends to come apart making them last a fraction as long as the old-school construction with a single density sole sewn onto the upper.

    I bought a pair of these from Target this last year, and took them back ASAP. They aren't even worth $25.

    The Chinese shoe makers and the companies that use them don't think we know what junk they are trying to stick us with. But we are catching on, and this is a deal that's not a deal worth wasting your money on.
