I want to love these boots. They are extremely comfortable. Very warm for Michigan winters. And they look great while at the same time being functional. However, after minimal use the seams have separated on both boots where the rubber toe meets the sole. Unfortunately, the boots are over a year old. They were purchased around Christmas 2016 but were only worn once or twice due to a milder winter. Fast forward to fall 2017, and I was looking forward to getting good use out of the boots as colder weather set in. By Christmas 2017, the boots were leaking. I tried sealing the seam with glue but am very disappointed in the quality of these boots. I have several pairs of Johnston Murphys and love all of them. Can't beat them for comfort, style, price and longevity. These boots just didn't stand up to the quality I have experienced in the past.
