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.
