Mine are holding up well. The only complaint I have is somewhat excessive creasing on the right shoe. Obviously I use my right foot to drive and this might have put some extra stress on that shoe but I've never had that happen before. I can only attribute it to the leather quality. I don't imagine the suede shoes would have that problem because suede just seems to hold up better to creasing in general. I dig those chelsea boots and I have no problem with them in black.
