I didn't actually buy these boots from "army surplus warehouse" I got them at my local surplus store, but they are the same. I would call them AMAZING boots. I wear them in the woods, for working, with a three piece suit. In the three years I have owned them the only thing I've had to do is wipe them down after a days work and shine em up and they look new again. The tread design is excellent. It allows good traction for moving quickly up hill in slick conditions and has shown surprisingly little wear.
