This is sort of an off shoot of the other “looking for durable boots” thread. I have the DaVinci’s and I’m really not so happy with them. I’m wondering what other’s experiences have been. This is what I don’t like (my boots are about 2 years old)
Leather is super soft and comfortable but not durable. The black comes off on the sponge when I clean them (I’m not scrubbing to hard) and makes me worry that by next year they will be a weird shade of vile green.
They don’t polish and in fact look rather dull most of the time even when clean.
The sole of one boot split in half under my instep - dunno why.
I’m still getting blisters on my achilles tendons - the zipper is kind of weird around there and bunches up.
I expect the calf side to wear a lot, but the leather on one of my boots is shredding a little.
Anyway - after spending a lot of cash (for me) on these boots I’m thinking that they might not last very long. I’m only using them for shows and taking very good care of the, hence the unhappiness. Don’t think I’ll be getting another pair unfortunately.
Do you love your Treadsteps, or are they not working for you? Just curious.
