Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

I've been wearing these boots constantly for about a year now. I'm in them 40 hours a week and I'm always on my feet. I've taken them through mud, muck, gravel, snow, everything. It was only until this harsh winter that they've started to wear away. The sole has started to peel off at the toe and I've gotten cracks where the toe bends. They've also lost their waterproofing due to the breaks.

All in all I really liked this boot, they've lasted longer than my other pairs with the amount of wear I do on a daily biases. There was barely any break in time and they were pretty comfortable with some wool socks. The boot is pretty stiff but I had no problems with it.

I work at a zoo so I've put a lot of mileage on these boots in all sorts of conditions. Rain, snow, mud, muck, gravel, and who knows what else. My first pair lasted a little over a year of constant use. I was in these 40 hours every week, sometimes more. The Gore-Tex waterproofing held up throughout that time and I couldn't be happier in that aspect. They are also very comfortable to wear and I found I needed no break-in period with them. They are decently warm with a pair of wool socks, but are not good on icy surfaces. The boot itself also started to break where you would bend your toes. I bought a second pair and had the same result of the boot splitting at the toe, but this time I was only in them for about 7 months. This crack was worse than the first since it ruined the waterproof integrity.

I suppose these would be good for light work, but they certainly do not hold up to extreme working conditions or constant use.
