I've had these boots since August of 2011. I have loved most every aspect of them. They look great and I find them super comfortable. They feel solid, like they will protect my feet during a spill. The quick lace system is a great feature. The buckles are maybe a little too easy to catch on things and come undone.
The only real issue I have with the boots is the eyelets that the laces run through. The eyelets are made of fabric and the friction from the laces causes the eyelets to fray and eventually fail. I've had two eyelets in each boot fail so far, the top two on the right boot and the next two down from the top on the left boot. This is a design flaw. Those eyelets should not be made of fabric given the friction they are subjected too when you snug up the laces.
I have pics but I'm getting an error trying to add them to the review.
