Rebels are certainly no worse than R3s or Vixens or the like. They're a leather upper which doesn't hurt their longevity.

Any boot in a derby application should be considered consumable.

And you're right, Rog, that Invader plate will live forever and will remount to another boot just fine when the time comes.
