I thought Pajar are made in China. Those ones are made in Bosnia and Herzegovina?

No, because they manufacture their boots in China now. Some Canadian models still exist and their price reflects the higher costs associated with Canadian labour.

From what I understand, their boots are actually pretty good, but the change in manufacture has affected their reputation.

I bought an expensive pair from Softmock this year. Tried them on in store, felt good and liked the style.

Got home and was putting them on to go out. Ripppp, the heel part tore right down on the inside. Returned them and bought a different brand.

Here we go again!

If you're looking for a pair a pajar, go to your local winners, beyond the rack or shoeme for a better price

They only have 3 month warranty for everything from their boots to jackets. Every other brand is lifetime. Sounds like crap to me.

Every other brand that makes boots or coats has a lifetime warranty? No. I wouldn't expect boots to last a lifetime anyway.

Pajar warranties their boots for three months and coats for 1 year against manufacturer's defects.

pajar boots seem like pretty garbage quality to me

I'd rather go with sorel if you want some massive beasts or ugg for a more casual winter boot.
deleted to keep the site family friendly. Was about copping sick fadez.
Well there's no sick fadez left to be copped now that the regimen cannot be admired in all its glory
RIP sick fadez.

My pajar boots failed me. One of the metal grommets or whatever for the laces came off. My toe bled when I walked 5 km in them, and boots leaked. But, they have good grip for shovelling snow on the steep-sloped sidewalk.

When I test-drove my leather Sorel boots on the same route (10km), they passed with flying colours.

I bought a pair of (ugly) women's Columbia winter boots maybe (8?) years ago and they're amazing. They were like $50-$60 on sale, maybe the Summette style (not sure because they're older) and I hope they never die. No amount of cold or moisture ever penetrates these things and they're so light. The downside is that they're not so stylish, but I don't really care about that for shovelling, dog walking, dog park, winter forest hikes.

regular price? not worth it at all but when heavily discount, doesn't hurt. they are decent. the temp rating though. one needs a thick pair of wool socks in -20C unlike sorel or ugg

That’s pretty crappy. Would not buy
