I purchased these boots right before the winter and they did not even last me 2 and a half months. The lining inside of the boot ripped, exposing the hard plastic and making it impossible to continue using. Since it was right after the 2 month product defect policy, I was told it was considered normal wear and tear and that nothing could be done. I would expect expensive boots such as these to last at least one full winter, if not several of them. Total ripoff! Not worth your money!
