I've had these boots for 7 months and they're already showing alot of wear. The kick starter plate on the right boot popped out over the top screw and the screw won't come out as the backing plate is spinning freely between the boots liner and outer shell. They're under the 1 year warranty but for warranty work you're out a pair of boots for 1-2 weeks. Another friend has them and one of the straps the buckle hooks into is falling apart. He's had his for a year. Wish I would have gone with the Tech 10's, Sidi, or Fox Instinct from the start.
