I've had these boots since '08 and this will be my 6th season riding in them. They still look like new and hold up to aggressive running boards very well. The only downfall to these boots is the weight, they are very heavy and very stiff! For jumping, ditchbanging, and riding powerlines these boots are great and I wouldn't trade the safety these boots offer for something lighter weight. If you spend the whole day jumping from one side of the sled to the other a lighter boot would probably be a good choice. I've never had cold or wet feet in these boots and there's more than a few times I'm sure I would of ended up with a foot or ankle injury if I was riding in anything less than these boots!
