I have had these boots for 9 months. They are very comfortable. They do polish up nicely. I work with agricultural chemicals and exposed the boots to direct contact. The front rubber toe piece is beginning to separate on the right boot. Worth $80.00 to me.

Average quality, nothing great
I am a C.O. and have owned these boot for 8 months now.
Pros: Boots are lightweight, polish up nice, leather seems to be durable. They also clear a metal detector, which is a plus in my line of work.
Cons: Had to replace the insoles at 7 months; the heel was worn all the way through. Even with new soles, they still hurt my feet. Rubber soles wear down pretty fast if you are using them for everyday duty. They also take a while to break in at first, and are uncomfortable until that point. Decent for $80, but if you have an extra $20-$30 in your budget, spend the extra money on something else.

good boots for the money
i have had these boots for about 9 months. they are now falling apart. i really cant complain though. i work as a drill instructor at a boot camp for youthful offenders and put a lot of miles on my feet including running in them. they are light weight and comfortable as advertized. since i only paid 80 bucks for em i wouldnt expect them to last 2 years or more.
