First timer - loved them at first, now not so much. Very short lifespan... zero support

I was looking for Columbia boots that I had and loved, but couldn't find them. Ended up with these. Hope they keep my feet as dry as the Columbias did. Was concerned about the missing finger-pull to assist with putting them on - but with the grommet hooks being loose each time, they go on and off very easily. Very comfortable. I did order a half size larger, but probably could have gotten by with my regular size. I'll wear thick[er] socks. Didn't want to take the chance the smaller size would be too small. I like the fact there is no material other than leather on the outside. That is always the first thing to deteriorate to make them look like crap. These will look good for a long time, longer with care. Great soles, possibly better than the Vibrams on my Columbias. Much dressier than any work boots I've had. With my black jeans, I could wear them anywhere. I think I'll take the dog for a walk and break them in (even though they really don't require much of a break-in).UPDATE... These boots came apart at the seams after a few months. Since they were outside Amazon's warranty period, I notified the manufacturer. They didnt even have the courtesy to respond. It was my 2nd pair - and last. Dont buy these crap boots. Poor quality with no support. You get what you pay for. I paid S#&t and that's exactly what I got.
