Re: Why don't boots last more than a year
I've got a pair of 600grm. thinsulate boots from Wolverine that I bought at Dicks about 10 years ago. They have the GoreTex in them. I waterproof the leather and nylon 1x a year (usually a month before hunting season) I have no problems with them leaking or anything.
I bought a pair of Rockys that were supposed to be waterproof, but the stitch down sole separated and I can't walk through wet grass without getting soggy socks.
I like Wolverines.
I also have Danner Acadia boots for work, 3 years old, 1 resole, no leaks, but they were $200+.
I'm not a big fan of glue on soles, I think they're cheaply made.
The more people that I meet, the more I love my dog
