Have worn a pair for several years with lots of foot and trail patrol. I have very small, blister prone, problem feet; but the only time I got blisters with these was on a pack test (carry 45 lbs 3 miles in 45 minutes). The toe has been scuffed and scratched a few times, so only looks good if freshly polished, and the leather toe seems to have dried out some. still works well for everyday, but not for dress/court. Nice and light and flexible.
