    will & be going to

    Hi,

    There's a sentence: These shoes are very well made. They'll last a long time.

    Can I change it like this: These shoes are very well made. They're going to last a long time.

    Are these two sentences the same meaning?

    Thank you

    Yes, they have the same meaning.

    Re: will & be going to

    There is plenty of overlap between the two forms and often you can use either.
