These boots are rather inexpensive for what I got out of them. I have had them for a while. I live in Kyrgyzstan and do some pretty crazy stuff in them. I wear them daily and haven't had an issue with them and have owned them for a while. They are rather comfortable and very durable. I wish they were a little more breathable because they get sweaty easily but I cannot complain. They get the job done, are comfortable, look good, are MAMMUT (can never go wrong with them), and they are very durable. I would definitely recommend these to a friend.
