DURABLE is the word for these mats. They undoubtedly will outlive me! I have to wear rubber soled shoes. The mats interfere with my shoes especially getting into the car. I will adjust! The mats don't fit perfectly, but we trimmed them down. It wasn't an easy task, but doable. They are very heavy, but easy to hose down. I would definitely recommend them to a friend. My car is 16 years old; I hope I remember to remove these mats when they haul my car off to the dump!!
