These boots have been an incredible piece of equipment. I've had them since 1980 and have worn them for backpacking, snowshoeing, hiking, and as everyday winter-wear in Colorado. They have been effectively completely waterproof (pre-treated with Kiwi ShoeSaver then regularly with Kiwi WetProof) in all but a several hour hike in heavy rain.
I've had no durability problems of any sort with any aspect of the boots, but they need to be resoled soon. I would buy another pair in an instant if the new ones are anything like these.
