This "work" boot may be the worst shoe purchase ever made. After less than a year of less than full-time landscaping and junk removing this boot has fallen apart. The front stitching has come undone leaving holes for dirt to enter the insides. Both laces are shredded with one already having been replaced. Maybe the only positive comes from the unexpected durability of the sole. The leather itself also holds up well. Poorly crafted. Also, normally wear size 9, had too order size 8. DO NOT RECOMMEND BUYING!
