I would give these a five, but the cloth lace holders broke out on every single rung of my boots. Granted, I work on our dairy farm and manure and urine from cows breaks down the cloth eyelets. Metal Grommets would go a long ways to make these boots a 5 in my book. Very warm and comfortable on this 52 year old lady's feet out in the Wisconsin elements for several hours a day. I spent the last two out of 3 years with these boots wrapping the laces around the upper to keep them on. Now they wore out. I did see some available with metal lace holders a couple years ago, but don't see them now in 2016.
