I purchased these Rocky Chukkas for work. They are a good design, and the fit is right. the problem I had was that the leather upper was not good quality. After wearing them for 1 day, the top of the boot had creases and wrinkles all over them- deep ones that shouldn't happen with good leather. I think they separated from the lining enough to not smooth back out. I hadn't even applied any treatment to them, because they were so new. the only other issue I had was the non-leather inside lining of the lacing areas. These boots have no eyelets where the laces go through the material, so I understood that they needed something less stretchy than the leather upper alone to keep the holes from widening. However, the synthetic material rubbed the leather tongue every time I took a step, and made a loud squeaking noise which didn't go away as I wore the shoes all day. If it wasn't for the upper wrinkling, I would've probably kept the boots and worn them until the squeaking went away. Instead, I returned them. I have other Rocky boots, so I haven't given up on the brand, but the selection of styles is very limited in my 6.5 men size, so it may be awhile before I but something again.
