I bought these tall boots over a year ago and riding them everyday. I ride up to six horses every day if we want to take an average of 4 that means that I rode in these boots over a thousand times. Never mind the time I spent wearing them walking around, walking courses, cleaning the barn, grooming, and everything else. They were extremely comfortable when I caught them, got me tons of compliments, and still do. Overall they've held up extremely well, I'm getting them resoled because of a split in my right sole, but it will be totally worth it for these boots. Every other pair I've ever worn I have worn out the leather. I've never worn out the sole. These are fantastic and the best I've ever had for the price.
