I have been using these three seasons (WFSp) for four years now. I cycle by bicycle year round...I am not gentle with my footwear...salt/snow/wet and extreme cold. In year 3 an eyelet went adn then another...I took them to our local cobbler to have them repaired for about 30.00...worth every penny even to hang on to them for another year. They are no longer as waterproof by any means but are certainly pretty water resistant still! About as good a boot as I have ever had....leading me to now take a look at their shoes!
