I wear these boots when I don't need to be a special boot for a specific task, kind of my general day to day boot. Work out doors in all weather. I owned a pair previously when they first come out and loved them. Super comfortable, the wide fit was nice, I wore the sole off before the boot wore out. My second pair fell apart in no time. Multiple lace hooks broke off, the seal between the upper and sole started to open up quickly, other stitching Came out quickly and to top it off an identical sized boot did not fit the same. I was not impressed with my purchase.
