Break-in Period: none
Price Paid: ~$200
I bought these boots to take on a round the world trip. By the end of my first trek in Nepal they were leaking and the stiching was torn. They had had about 3~4 weeks wear. At this price I expect more. I could get no return from the manafacturer or their dealer when I contacted them about it. But I must say they were very comfortable (when it wasn't wet!) so if you've got lots of money to throw away - then they are probably worth it.
