I got these as TAP issue right before I got out of the good 'ol USMC. They've stood up to 30 mile humps, 4 months at a HAZMAT lot as a FAP, and... most amazingly, 2 years of machining work. I wear them every day standing on concrete (10+hrs a day) and they're still going strong. I started wearing them to work after trashing my "nice" boots (redwings). These things are great, repel chips like the plague (they get stuck in the tread but blow right out haven't had any stick into the actual rubber yet) and the soles have held up EXTREMELY well to coolant when I have CNC work to do. The leather has also admirably stood its ground, but it stains like the dickens. They look like crap after 4 years of absolute abuse (I'm extremely hard on boots, my redwings only lasted me a year and a half) no rips or tears just stained. I wouldn't trade them for anything. When they finally bite the dust I'll be buying another pair for sure. Whether you're kicking in teeth or crankin' handles you can't go wrong with these.
