I'd say they're definitely worth the price, although if you've never tried a pair on prepare for the feel of a true heavy duty boot. I think unless you have experience with stuff like White's or Wesco it's hard to imagine how bombproof they are.

I don't really know what I'm going to do. This is my first pair of boots in roughout. As far as I know it's a little sturdier than suede but I don't know if the leather is pre-treated at all. I've got other boots for soggy winter days so they may end up getting a little less wear when winter hits.
