These boots have seen floods, mud, droped 75lbs tool boxes on my toes, cars rolling over my toes, you get the point.....they finally ripped just above the ankle between the leather and the lower. The zippers finally gave way....with these problems, and I still have my toes.....BUY THEM !!! They fit, they are warm in the winter, keep my feet dry, and my toes intact.....BUY THEM !!!
