I have owned these boots for about three months and man they are great boots. They look stylish and are also extremely comfortable. The stitching has remained nice and my feet have been dry the entire time. My only problem with the boots are the laces. They immediately start to fray and just look awful. They have remained intact since I bought them but I will need new laces very soon. Most reviews talk about the bad laces and it should not stop you from getting these boots as laces are inexpensive.
