I like these boots so much I ordered another pair, thinking when these wear out, I'll still have a pair. I am a falconer chasing after a goshawk in very heavy cover, crossing creeks, running through heavy brush (she goes anywhere she wants-doesn't concern herself about what's below). These boots really are waterproof, very comfortable, easy to lace up, and light weight. I was concerned about the lace eyelets, thinking they might not last ( they are sewn, not metal eyelets) , and time will tell, but they make the laces slide really easily so getting even tightening of the lace is the easiest I've ever seen. And I'm giving them a lot heavier use than one might just walking on a hiking trail. Phoebe doesn't concern herself with trails. Here's what's wrong with them: 1.The laces have a stranded center and a woven exterior which frays almost immediately and bunch up and can't be pulled out, and I've replaced both laces. 2.The sole has come unglued on the heel of one of the boots. No problem, using barge cement I plan to re-glue. 3.Suggest using snow seal or some other sealer on the leather uppers to keep water out, but so far these boots have not leaked, even when standing in water 4 inches deep.
