the only negative, if you call it that, for me is the shoe strings. I like a thick string, these are somewhat like a thin paracord lace. I always double knot my boots, but if you pull them tight, the strings will cut into your fingers unlike how a thicker lace would not.
I'm posting some more pics after normal wear and tear. You can see how the tongue is sown inside and how high up the water proofing would be effective.
