Made in Italy boots

Maybe this has been mentioned already but I heard thru the grapevine that this virus already is affecting supplies of boots made in Italy which most of our high end hunting boots are.. Don't wait until summer to get your new boots get on a list now..

good heads up....picked up a new pair of Zamberlans 50% off from REI last week.  Stock was dwindling fast.

Makes me wonder about other Italian imports too.  Like Beretta/Benelli/Franchi.  And what about China?  I wonder how far behind they are now.  Seems like everything is made in China these days

China is pretty much back up, I read 70-80% a few days ago.  They won't waste any time getting people back to work, the worst fear in communism is a bunch of angry people standing around.

I’ve also read in the news that China’s industry is back running at a pretty high percentage. Stein is right about about communists not wanting people standing idly getting angry. Our government probably wouldn’t, either.

Vasques use to be my favorite boots. Then they started making them in Vietnam, and they quality tanked. They are decent boots now, but not where they once were.
