I was raised right near the flagship store and I have owned three pairs of these boots. I am VERY sad to say that I do have only one complaint. The inside of both rands, towards the toes, pulls away after about a year on all three pairs.
I am sad to report this because these boots are by far THE MOST COMFORTABLE BOOT I have ever worn!!!! If Bean's would stitch and not glue their rands, this would be a non-issue.
I would still recommend these boots due to their top shelf quality and unbeatably return policy. Please give these babies a chance!!!! Thank you.
