I have the lace up cobalts. I think they are on their 4th year, but honestly, they need to be replaced this spring. Also, I wear another winter version of the Ariats, so I only wear the cobalts from spring until winter starts.
When I first got them, I thought they were stiff and bothered me a little, but once they broke in, they have been my favorite boots.
I wear them almost everyday and I wear them for a long time usually. I do equine therapy for a living and I wear them to work in, to ride in, and sometimes I wear them to hike in with my dogs. I love how much support they have in the soles and the heels have multiple layers of gel that help keep your feet comfy.
I have been watching for a sale to get a new pair this year. I used to have to buy a new pair of boots every year before I got my cobalts.
