I wear these almost everyday. They have had a hard life. I lived in the rural west country and these survived months of mud and snow. I work as a nurse so am on my feet all day and at times walk through unpleasant bodily stuff. No leaks to my great delight. Plus walk my dogs for miles and they are still going strong 1 yr and 7 mths after purchase. Going to invest in another pair of these and keep these going in the interests of seeing when they will finally give in. I've worn Doc Martens and the only difference to me is the price!
