These boots last me about 4 years wearing them every day and not always cared for properly. Generally I have to replace the heal rubber on the 3rd year.
This pair lost a stare because the size was slightly large in length - heal loose and slips - which should be tight when new. Also with by toes seams tighter than should but that will stretch in break in period.
Owned this brand many times over my 50 years wearing western boots. If regularly polished they will last till second replaced heal rubber is worn out.
I bought these boots for my son. He absolutely loves them. He said they fit well and are super comfortable. They are the only shoes he has worn since he received them. The prices are very affordable and the shipping was quite fast as well as being free. I would definitely recommend buying from Starr Western Wear!
They look and feel great. Perfect for a gift or for everyday use. Great price for what you get. Love them
