Much better longevity than danners and same no break in time. I beleive these boots can be picked up for about $120. Maybe cheaper since army has gone to a tan suede. The bellevilles are black and gor-tex lined. When these finally wear out I not rest until I find another pair. With a good pair of wool socks I could hike/hunt all day on snow in 15 degree weather.
Those crappy things were really stiff and chewed my feet up worse than anything.

The old 'baby killer' green jungle boots were the goods.
