Alright, I know people are saying the sole is cheap and breaks/cracks. I almost agree but mostly disagree because the sole is wood and the Vibram rubber under the shoe has held out, for me at least, for a while. I wore them constantly during the winter, walking through snow, salt, and dirty slush along the curbs. That was a total of about 4.5 months and only now has the Vibram sole finally started to give way along the back corner of the heel (it hasn't quite reached the wood yet). Albeit, I alternated between another shoe, I wore it every other day and every other day for 4 months is quite a lot! Thus, I can safely say that the sole is, in fact, pretty durable, not as much compared to, let's say, Red Wing's, but quality nonetheless. The leather is very nice and tough (I own boat shoes
-- their leather quality is awesome!) and I have scratches here and there, but it's no big deal because the boots
have a nice worn look. The insole can have better cushioning, but I never had any discomforts with it even though I'm slightly flat footed. But what takes the cake for these boots
are the looks and style. It's so incredibly aesthetically pleasing. I have worn it so much, made creases on the sides, scratched up the leather all the way around, but I'm still receiving compliments on how good they look. I'm not even kidding. They just look so nice with mostly any kind of jeans
as well. I would absolutely recommend these boots
shoes in general to anyone.
