Love that these boots are assembled in Canada. That's the main reason I bought them. This is my second pair of the same identical boot. The old ones have lasted a good year of hard use in the trades. I purchased a new pair because like all boots, some cracks in the leather were developing where the toe flexes. Because of the cracks and general condition of the leather they are no longer water resistant. Immediately after purchasing these new boots I switched to a memory foam insole. Something I waited too long to do with the first pair. Overall I am satisfied with the performance of the old pair and the new ones appear to be the same. Once broken in and fitted with a better insole I find them very comfortable. As long as these boots continue to be assembled in Canada I see no reason I wouldn't buy another pair when the time comes.
