I bought these boots a couple of years ago, but only ride 1-2 weeks per year (long trek to Glamis to ride my LT500R). They fit and look great. However, almost immediately the metal toe protector on the right boot came off. This was from light contact with the footpeg when kick starting. Then, this last trip, both upppers just came away from the soles. I was godsmacked. The material was obviously plastic. I had an old (from the 1980s) pair of O'Neils that to this day are still intact, probably because they are leather uppers.
