I just got them so can't speak to durability yet, but for anyone with WIDE feet these boots are great. I wear 4E width shoes and sneakers and could never find a great hiking boot that fit well or was wide enough. The room in these is very generous, the comfort of the footbed is great and they have all the great features you want in a day or few day hiking boot.
I knew I found a great boot when 3 out of 4 of the EMS guys were wearing them and the 4th guy said he was going to get a pair. I asked one of the techie guys about them and he said he's had his over a year and he loves them, one of the best boots he's owned. They will take a beating and still keep you confortable. He's hiked all day in them and his feet never got worn out. I also noticed his boots still looked good after a year of use.
I'll keep you posted, but for now this hiker is pretty physched to hit the trails in new comfort.
