Purchased these boots a couple of years ago and they held up very well. No button or zipper failures at all. Waterproof all the way to the top of the boot, which was definitely needed for me. If you're looking for a reasonably priced boot that will take some decent abuse, I'd highly recommend these. My reason for not giving 5 star rating, is that when these boots did develop a problem, it wasn't fixable. The entire Thinsulate lining from the boot came out with my foot as I was removing it one day. As stated, they lasted a couple years of almost constant wear.
