To be honest, I have a pair and I am not satisfied with them all that much. They are nice looking boots, but they aren't really durable at all. You could find a better boot in the same price range and I have had cheaper pairs of hodgemen last me longer.
Where a piece of rubber meets the leather on the boot (or sort of goes overtop of it), the stitching started to come off on both boots. I had leather that was stitched together, start coming apart as well. To remedy both of these situations, I aquasealed them back together and it worked out alright, but you shouldn't have to do that!
The Drings for laces, the metal that holds them onto the boot with the two sort of "nails," well a few of them have cracked and one of the D rings actually cracked right off the other day, which really changes the way I have to lace up now, LOL! They also take quite a while to dry off. in some instances. Unless you put them close to a heatsource. In my situation when I put them fairly close, but not too close to the gas fireplace, the inside of the boot near your heel there is plastic in the boot, well it seems to retard with just the slightest bit of heat (I'm not fryin these things, just putting them a respectable distance from a fireplace to get them dry) and now it seems like I have boots that almost dig into my heels sometimes, or it makes them a tighter fit until I get into the water to loosen them up a bit. For the same price range, you would be better off buying the hodgemens, or even a new boot that has come out, the Redingtons which are 10-15 bucks more and worth it. I have a buddy who has the Redington boots and they have done him proud so far! When I get the money I think I'm gonna go with the Simms or Redington boots later on.
