I generally like these boots - they are OK. They offer a good fit, nice leather and design. Unfortunately, they are very noisy on hard surfaces and hard on your joints. Someone asked me if I was wearing "tap shoes" given the noise. The sole accumulates stones and scratches my wood floors. In contrast to the rubber on my Doc's, the sole is cheap. I have locally bought a pair of different boots, at under half the price, and they are better all-round. I won't buy these again and would not actively recommend them for the price.
