I agree with everything that you say here. If you're the type to wear your boots to the office and back, then maintenance will probably be somewhat minimal (especially if you drive door to door). It would seem to me that the cheaper the shoe, the more it would have to rest between wears as well. Barring the boots being really damp, I wouldn't think wearing the same pair of boots everyday would necessarily hurt them. I do understand giving them a rest every now and then though, especially if you're particularly rough on them.
Boots were delivered today and are waiting for me for when I leave work. Can't wait to see them in person (which I have yet to do).
You'll like them. Post pics if you can.
