I have not taken great care of them over the years and through constant exposure to leather ruining elements it is only now, 3 years later, that the outside leather is starting to crack. I have walked to and from work, a combined 2 miles about four to five times a week, and the soles are still good. They are worn, but I still trust them to be somewhat useful come snow. I am sure that if I used some leather oil for protection that I wouldn't be looking for a replacement pair now, as they are still good, wearable shoes, they just look really bad for work now.
A word of advice about comfort, I remember them being really hard on my feet at first for about a week. However, once they got broken in, they have been the best feeling shoe I've ever had; and that's coming from someone who usually needs to buy foot inserts for more comfort. I'm not sure if I plan on buying another pair of these shoes--I'm thinking of trying something else in the Timberland line-up-- but I definitely would recommend these boots to anyone looking to purchase a general use boot.
Now that that's out of the way, I can discuss my main gripes with these shoes. For one thing, even though I got the D (wide) version of these shoes, they still feel a bit narrow. I guess my feet are as wide as Tarzan's in Disney's Tarzan. Just no pleasing my feet, I guess. Another problem is on the left boot, I can feel the insides at the base of the tongue pressing against the top of my foot, and it feels uncomfortable, like it's squeezing delicate veins that will pop one day if I wear these all the time. Scary thought. I'm thinking of taking these to a shoe repair shop to see if they can widen these a bit and also relieve some stress on the roof of my foot, because otherwise these shoes are great.
Besides all that, the boots do feel a bit rigid in their design. I have another pair of black boots that are way more comfortable and cushion my foot without feeling like I'm stepping in a shoe made of cement. I assume I just need to wear them out with time, but I would expect a shoe that costs almost $200 to feel a bit more comfortable. Guess that's just something a poor person would say.
I'll update this review as I continue to wear these and possibly take them to a shoe repair shop.
These boots have a great look (got a very "hipster" sort of thing going on") and really feel like quality footwear. In general, these run very, tight and narrow, so order a size up and wear some thicker socks and you'll be just fine. Side zipper also works great and feels sturdy. Laces stay tight when using the zipper to take off the boot and taking them off is easy enough.
