Dude, the boots get complimented all the time and I have shit that costs 3x as much. I like them and it's hard for me to let these go but I have so much stuff and these are my least favorite pairs because they've been surpassed by all my margiela shoes so bottom of the chain has to go. These two I keep going back and forth on though because they're such great daily pieces which is what apc excels in imho. If anything you and others will definitely get their money's worth because you will want to use them all the time.
These run a bit more fitted than normal 43 because of the lining but they are warmer than normal boots obviously, but not too warm. The crepe starts off immaculate but the second you wear them the dirt makes its way into the sole gradually (like clarks) to give the shit some character. When I picked them up from the cobbler they buffed them for me and I swear I was kind of blown away since they looked brand new again (sole and uppers). You'll see, these bitches were like 424 new but of course I'll offer them at a reasonable price (have not thought about price yet) if you give them a new home. In my opinion best soft sole boot apc has made, they tend to make a different version every year but apc employees at the store in LA when it first opened were pissed b/c they sold so quick and only one guy there was smart and bought them early. New sole has probably about 20-30 wears if that and plenty of life left. (this is if you're talking about these ones, I'll write a description for the suedes later).
