These shoes look so freakin' good, and yet they fell apart with three months of city wear. The soles wore down an inch in the first month (no joke), and the rest of the boot was soon to follow. I wish Zappos had a durability rating - these are very comfortable and extremely good looking with any pant you wear...but unless you're treating these with the utmost care, they are very, very badly made. Incidentally, the first run of these boots had a design flaw (not sure if it's fixed or not) - the sole is actually two separate pieces glued together. Within the first two weeks, the flaps on one boot came undone (making them wag like an open mouth when I walked), and I had to exchange them for a new pair. Timberland was happy to accommodate, saying they had had a number of returns. The same problem occurred on my new pair about two months later. Little Shoe-Goo solved it, but come on. I expect better.

Great look, but the hollow rubber soles don't hold up. I wore through mine in just the first couple months.

I've been intrigued by these for several years so I pulled the trigger when i saw them on sale here at Zappos. I'm a sold size 15 so despite the reviews I ordered my usual size. I was wrong. I had always planned on wearing thick Thorlo hiking socks with these but the 15 was too big even for me. Zappos was very nice about exchanging them for 14s which is just right even with my thick socks. I should have ordered the 14s to begin with but I had to find out for myself. Now let's see how well they hold up.

Just a basic comfortable all around leather boot. The insoles do not hold up at all. After some new insoles though, I get a couple years of general wear and a couple more of garden duty.

Leather has a weird feel to it, almost synthetic. Not like other pair of Earthkeepers I own.

We had to order a whole size down and also order the Wide width for my husband. He doesn't usually need that, but these definitely fit differently than most boots. Once you find the right size, these boots are amazing!
