I have a pair of rocky pull ons I got in 2005. I wore them literaly every day till 2010. In 2010 I got them all covered in mud and left them outside, the entire boot turned green with mold and I wrote them off as lost and they sat there for 3 or 4 months. At that time I needed to run somewhere real quick and saw them by the door on the porch so I grabed them and put them on, they still fit great and were pretty comphy minus the smell... 2 years later in 2012, I still wear them when I got to the ranch, but they are getting pretty rough! I had to glue part of the sole back on and hammered a nail into the side to keep the heel on, but to this day it is the absolutely most comfortable pair fo shoes I have ever worn!
My every day boots now is a pair of justin square toes my fiance got me, and they arent holding up as well, but I do walk about 3 miles a day in them too.
It's hell eatin em live
