I have been were these boots for years and like them very much but they do have there weaknesses. Two things always happens with them. One is that the eyelets on the lower portion of the boot get worn down due to the friction with the laces which in turn sharpens the eyelets so they start cutting your laces. This is the only pair of boots I have ever had this issue with and I have been wearing boots since the military in the 90's.
Second issue is that the leather rots out after about a year. I do regular greasing of all my boots and this pair starts cracking at a year no matter what.
Great boots but poor materials from china limit there longevity which will eventually send me looking for something different.
