These boot are very durable. I have used them about twenty times so far this year. I have noticed wear and tear with previous high quality ride boots, but these are practically bullet proof. The are very stiff and responsive, but you can still walk around in them. My feet never get cold in these boots and they are very stylish. They are comfortable and true to size. They also have good tread on the bottom that helps you stay standing and grips the binding foot bed as well. I would highly recommend this product.
