I have had two pairs of these shoes, the first ones I got almost seven years ago-still look great and are holding up just as well as the ones I bought a few months ago. These shoes really last and are still comfortable/handsome after beating them daily for seven years. Sizing is pretty much right on, I wear a 12 in most other shoe brands (11 in some, 11.5 in others) and the 12's in this shoe were perfect. Waterproofing is great, even my old ones still keep the rain out. Hope they don't stop making this shoe because I don't think I will be moving on any time soon... but at the rate they're holding up now I'll still be wearing them ten years from now.
