Purchased these boots for an ocean crossing, in May. Great crossing, never needed the boots. I've worn them to check the fit, then they crossed the Atlantic in my sea bag. Other than that they are new. The fit and mobility are fantastic. These are not you basic plastic boots Paid $250 will sell for $170.
