After my old rocket dog boots finally died a death after 5 years it was time to invest in another pair. Love these boots & they've worn well. Bit annoying to take off & put on in a rush but when boots are so lovel y what does that matter!!! Well made and very comfy. Looking forward to the weather changing so I can wear them again! The laces for these boots are too long & I have to wrap them around the top & knot them at the back but I guess they are meant to be hanging down loose as the picture shows butt it's all down to personal preference. On the flip side, you'd be mad to replace them as they are very strong and pretty much keep the boots at the desired tightness.
