High Quality boots!!! I first bought these boots back in 2011. Since then I have bought only one new pair, those ones wore out, so I just purchased my third pair yesterday. So they last about a year and a half. Let me explain however, I wear these boots EVERY day for all these years, so they get their wear, and they do not disappoint. Yes I have to eventually get new ones because the zipper wears out, however when you factor in wearing these every day of your life without fail, its quite understandable. They are a perfect blend of steampunk, and modernish style, I always get compliments on them everywhere, and best of all their support makes my knee pain go away! I would recommend buying some kind of padding insert as the built in ones can wear out after a while (again I wear every day). Bottom line, best boots ever! High quality leather too.
Extremely disappointing. The boots look great and they feel great. However the zippers tend to give out after only a few wearings. This is not an isolated incident, in fact the majority of people in the steam punk community that purchase these boots all complain that the zippers fail after only a few wearings. It is disappointing that an expensive pair of boots only gives you 2 or 3 uses before they crap out on you. Go to the Ren and get a better pair of boots and avoid this product.
