I was disappointed when the sole on one boot delaminated after less than a year of wear. But the company resoled them, and the boots proceeded to give me 15 years of good service. They were resoled twice more, and the uppers had to be restitched here and there. That is the great thing about these old school boots. Find a good shoe repair guy, and they will last just about forever. If my dog hadn't eaten one of them last year, I'd still be wearing them.
