Rated 4 out of 5 by duck1996 good boot
the boot itself wears great. I've had my pair for over 2 years now. The only problem I have is after about 8 months on concrete, the soles are wore out and have no tread. Also the soles on mine split about the ball of my foot so they are no longer waterproof. overall a great boot for the first 8 months and a good boot after that

Rated 4 out of 5 by TuckerP Great boot value
Have had my boots for over a year now and have really enjoyed them ; they are comfortable and live up to their waterproof claim. Generally, they hold up well and are comfortable enough for everyday use.
After reading some of the other reviews I would agree with the small issues that others mentioned; yes, my heels squeak too, but they perform to a level that I can overlook that.
Secondly, they do run small. I normally wear a 10.5 in a boot but went to a 12 in the Rancher boot so that my Redhead boot socks have adequate room. I can still move my toes which is a comfort thing for me. I'm thinking a 1.5 size adjustment is a safe margin if you can't try them on in the store and BassPros free return shipping when there is a sizing issue is a nice service.
Lastly, my only real issue is that when the sole of the boot gets worn, it gets really slippery in icy, wet or leafy conditions. Pine straw is tricky and ice can be downright scary. Your feet will be dry but you might not be on them.
I agree a better wearing, non-slip, quieter sole would make this a perfect boot. My guess is there is a trade-off between comfort and sole performance.
All this being said, I still recommend the boot to my outdoors friends and have even ordered a gift pair. I consider these a great value product and would order another pair when I need them. Thanks!

Rated 3 out of 5 by jspann Great but Noisy
My husband has loved these boots from the beginging. We bought our first pair several years ago. There is virtually no brakin time, comfy from day one out of the box. The reason for a 3 rating is the noise the heals make. There have been some improvement, but the problem in the heal has not been eliminated. It was bad enough we even bought other boots for a year - none as comfy. He decided to try again a few weeks ago. There are slight changes, but after a few wears the heals have started making noise. I really wish that the manufacturer could fix that problem.
