I've been wearing these boots for 2 years now as a guide in my moto tour business (www.boliviamotors.com) in Bolivia and have found them very comfortable and durable - both key things when you wear them as much as i do. I agree with Eric about the inner booties which i have found excellent for wearing to breakfast in the morning or to the first beer in the evening. There seems to be two versions though - i have a white pair which have extra ventilation in the top via holes which means these boots are not waterproof or even water resistant. I have heard the black ones don't have then venting and withstand water better. Overall, very comfortable, the buckles have lasted well and show no signs of giving up and the soles are also wearing very well. I'll probably replace with the same again when i need another pair.
