I have some 2 or 3 year old imperials. Rocked them for a few weeks the first 2 years and have worn them 8 hours a day for 70+ days so far this season, at work all day and riding hard. Just starting to get packed out. Great boots. I got a size 10, usually wear a size 9.5 in Nikes or similar brands (street shoes) if this helps. If you can find em for a good price I'd defenately reccomend them. A few of my co-workers, riders wear them too and love em.
