The processing time was a bit lengthy, taking 4 or 5 days, but once they were shipped they came very quickly through UPS. The boots themselves are very sturdy and rugged. The steel toes are already causing the leather on the toe to wear but that's normal. I'd recommend getting a different pair of laces because the stock ones don't hold the boot closed for easy lacing and rubbed my hands raw after just a few laces & ties. Overall very satisfied!
