If you're messing around or just hanging out they are awesome. They are like slippers for the outside world. Mine had no problems holding up. I had the plaid ones as my first pair and wore them hard (to bars and in the rain and snow) and they lasted 8 months ish. Got my second pair in the tweed and they are awesome. Beware they are sized small, I wear 11 and bought these in a 10.
