I have a pair of Fall Creek's regular boots (slightly higher in front, but not the full flap type) and they are great.  Worth MUCH more than I paid for them.

I have fall creek's officer brogans and with a set of sports orthotics(sp) put in them they are my most comfortable cowboy boot to wear bar none.

I have nothing but praise for their stuff.  They have stood up to mud, dust, rocks etc etc...  The only issue I have had is be careful on slate and grocery store type floors - with the hob nails - they are slick on that kind of surface.

I have used mostly them and Quartermastershop and am looking at another Sutler for a French 1870-1880 uniform - but they are US made to order and quite costly.

But I need one to go with my French 1873 (11mm) pistols and my WWI french carbines!!

FCS...makes two grades of boots, one pair sells for around $175.00, the other is the custom boots (around $225.00 last years prices), I don't think you can buy a better boot for the money, custom fitted. As Deadeye said....you get what you pay for....

Thank you all for helping me sort out these two competitors' products.  I don't take too kindly to being offered a pair of boots for $120 from a guy using the picture of another guy's boots that he sells for $210.  Same picture tells me it's the same boot.  But I trust you folks here that have assured me it is not.  As for that other guy...  >:(
