I was hesitant to purchase these, as I knew nothing about the brand or the quality. However, the price was right and they looked like they would be fine. I'm actually quite pleased with the quality of this boot for the price, and very glad I chose it over pricier options. In general, the craftsmanship is decent and they feel like they will hold up. They footbed is not padded, and mine are a bit big on me, but I think adding insoles will fix both those issues. The toebox is a bit wide for my taste.
