I work as a railroad conductor and get one to two years out of a pair of boots before they need replacement or resoled. I've tried many different brands always trying to buy the higher end made-in-usa offering. These Chippewa boots I liked so much I bought a second pair after a few in-between years of Danners which I switched to partly for the lower heel. The logger heel on these Chippewas won't hold onto the little rubber cleats I wear in icy conditions and also the logger heel is more prone to twisting my ankle on the rough ballast where I do a lot of walking. The only reason I give them 4 out of 5 stars is because toward the end of my last pairs lifespan they began to come apart inside the sole.
I will add that my pair fit so tightly at first I was worried about the size but I stuck with it and was rewarded with some of the most perfectly fitting boots I've ever had. They need break-in. It might be fair to say they are cut narrow so order wide.
