GMC I bought these boots cause they ran in big sizes and were waterproof. I wanted a nice/comfortable pair of boots for going out in when its raining, or snowing, or ice on the ground. The boot has great grip, comfort, and does good in snowy conditions. I've had these boots for two months now in South Jersey, and even after the 2011 Blizzards we have had so far they look and feel brand new.
Jason 216 I wear these boots every chance I get. Looks fantastic with jeans (casual or designer). Just to be clear, these are the "scuff proof" material. The leather looks really nice and stays looking new. The only downside is that they are a little tough to clean, because the material is coarse. But these boots are really comfortable, after many days of wearing them all day. Probably takes about a week of use to break in. Oh yeah, I knew that these ran large, so I ordered a size down to get the right fit. Keep this in mind when you order.
