I am very very happy with these boots. You cannot go wrong with these. they are very rugged and very well made (I was actually surprised at just how well). Even with everyday wear, I feel it's safe to say, you will have these boots for years, seriously. Also, they are a looser fit. So, they will accommodate a variety of sock weight. They do rub a little at the top, however, I am still breaking them in. All in all though, a double thumbs up.
