I liked these boots at first for their appearance, a little discomfort around the toes. Then 4 months after wearing these boots to work, a hole appeared inside the heel of my right boot. I sit at a desk most hours. I’ve never had these happen before in any of my shoes. It’s wasn’t long after when another hole appeared in the left shoe too, same spot. I would’ve kept wearing them, but the hole does cause discomfort. I paid too much for these shoes to only last 4 months. Now I have to buy another pair of ankle booties.
