    Don't forget to properly take care of the boots if they are leather. If you take care of quality leather boots, they should have no problem lasting for years.

    I wear Bates Enforcer Ultralites, have been for... 5 or 6 years now.

    I have to replace them about once a year, bearing in mind I do a lot of walking/running/hiking, and the main reason I have to replace them is that the sole is worn down flat. Under less strenuous use, I don't see any reason why they wouldn't last two or three years.

    I've had boots that lasted longer, but these are THE MOST COMFORTABLE footwear I've ever owned, sneakers and other shoes included. I have no reason to wear sneakers anymore because these are more comfortable (after maybe a week of breaking them in, anyway) and just as maneuverable.

    it's not the leather i have problems with, it's the inside coming apart. i think i'm actually gonna spend a little more $$ this time and get something of quality.

    i really like a couple models of from Danner.

    My brother just gave me a pair of Ridge boots for Christmas. They are very comfortable, have a zipper on the side for easy on/off and are well made.

    Cant go wrong with Danner, they are worth every penny. FWIW, don't get a steel toe, they get mighty cold in the winter.

    Check out Ecco. Bought mine for $200 or so at a retail store called "Walkers". I haven't taken them off except to sleep (and for this photo) for two years.

    Actually, I do take them off occasionally for other casual moments... But they are great shoes.
