I love this boot. Great price, great comfort!! I use the Redwing insoles and for me they are even more comfortable! Like walking on Marshmallows or Peanut butter. However, I live in Wisconsin so I need to retire them over the winter months due to the soft soles getting hard and very slippery during the winter months. But when Spring arrives, I can't wait to bust them out again. So for that reason, I have other more pertinent boots for those cold winter months that are warm, and have good winter grip. Yes, depending on your career, these soles can wear fast. For me they are perfect because 50% of my work is driving to and from locations, and the other 50% is pure hard work. So in that sense, they are a great boot for me and I love them!! Will definitely either resole mine soon, and will buy a second pair to rotate them so as to not wear one pair out too fast.
