The boots were very comfortable, warm, and seemingly well built. I splurged on these boots - I'm not made of money. After about 6 months I started to notice the tread pulling away from the mid-layer of the sole of the boot. After several weekends of hunting with the boots getting very wet and dry (my feet always stayed dry) that mid-sole area seemed to be shrinking which was causing the bottom of the sole - the tread, to be pulling away. I used super glue to glue them back, but it continued to happen and this pulling away allowed pebbles, small sticks, mud and other debris to get between the sole and tread which felt like you were walking on pebbles. The soles simply didn't last and although I continue to wear them - gluing them after almost every use, I would not recommend them. I would have returned them, but I used them for a few months in the outdoors before the problem began. They are still very comfortable and keep my feet dry, but the tear away tread is just too much of an issue to recommend - especially on a $160 boot.
