I bought these boots in June 2012 and I am still wearing them today. I am on my feet between 40 and 70 hours per week (average approx. 60) and they are still holding up and looking good (even when enforcing military standards). My only complaint was that the boot was lacking cushioning when it came to the insoles. Other than having to purchase Dr. Scholl's inserts (which is why these don't get a 5-star), they are the second best pair of boots (for work) that I have worn in the past 27 years.
