I bought these are the recommendation of my father-in-law who is in the FBI. I'm on my feet a lot for my job in IT so I require a boot that provides adequate cushioning and will last longer than a year. I've had these for about a month now and I like them so far. They're pretty easy on my heels which is especially noticeable at the end of a long work day. Too bad the souls arent replaceable but what can you really expect for a pair of $80 boots. So far pretty satisfied with these.
I was impressed with these boots upon on taking them out of the box. they seem really well put together for a pair of entry level boots. That's the price you can buy boots of this quality for under $100. The leather is soft and they should polish up real nice. Good room in the toe area and sizing was right the first time around.
