These are my favourite boots and I keep buying them as nothing suits me better. I love their out of the box comfort and wide foot sizes. My "BUT" comes from that something has changed. I used to buy new ones because the sole wore out but not for a last couple of sets, it's been because the soles failing apart. I think this must be from the glue being used or something similar. I'm still buying them though if I could find something as good I will swap as currently it's just throwing money away.
