Use: sheep hunting
Break-in Period: ???????
Price Paid: $279
Had these boots for two months and they literally fell apart. The GSB gimmick in the toe fell out in both boots and subsequently left gaping chewed up holes in the toe rubber. The rubber rand was unraveling fast and the stitching in the heal area also came undone. To top it all off they were terribly uncomfortable and never seemed to break in.
I have had at least ten pairs of high end (300$+) boots over the years and these things were junk. Got my money back today. Back to Meindls... they are the best.
