These boots are by far the best ones I have purchased. I recommend making sure to try the boots on first at a dealer with these boots in stock. I purchased mine at a near boot store and I have yet to retire them. I plan on buying one more pair to keep in case they discontinue them. I use them for work and we are very active at work. Very comfortable boots and water proof! One of the reviews has to do with shipping and not the actual boots, and the other one sounds like he got a wrong size. I have owned many pairs of boots from Danner, Oakley, Bates, UA and many more and by far these boots are Light weight and comfortable. One more thing, they also maintain a great shine even after working out in the field.
