Bought in january then worn everyday for 15+ hours June through August and they have held up wonderfully! Comfy and still good enough style to wear out (after theyve been oiled of course!)

Great Riding Boot, not Work Boot
As a roper and therapeutic horseback riding volunteer, I needed a boot that could go from the rodeo to the ring with kids. My previous Ariats were wonderful and lasted me forever, but then I switched to western and decided on Quickdraws. I've taken these boots all over, and they are wonderful. They are super-comfy to walk around in and work all day in. They are great in the saddle, the outsole doesn't slip at all in the stirrup. And, they're double as great fashion boots. (I've even worn them to a formal dance). However I do recommend these as riding or fashion boots only, not work boots.
My TWO complaints are how easily they scuff and the short-ness of the spur lip. My spurs had left big indents in the heels, and I had to buy a cheap pair of Justins to wear to my volunteer job because kids and horses would step on my boots and scuff them up. That said, the scuffs are easily fixed with some conditioner and a good rub, BUT the indents from my spurs are permanent. However, I almost always have my spurs on or long, so the dents aren't THAT noticeable.
Overall, I do LOVE these boots. They are way more comfy than my Justins, way prettier, and just work better all around for roping and barrels. If you can deal with a few scuffs here and there and conditioning them weekly, then these boots are for you.
