Have been worn outside for less then 5 hours. I gave them one light coat of Obenhaufs Heavy Duty LP and put some heel cushions in them which can be easily removed.   Wore them around the store and they felt great. Wore them out for dinner the next night and was in immense pain. These boots are way to narrow for my feet!   $400 out the door they are all yours.
