Wondering if anybody here is in the same predicament as me and has found good boots?

I've currently got Merrells, I love them, but they use fabric eyelets, which keep ripping. Other than that, besides worn soles, the boots were still in really good shape after a year.

I'm on my third and final warranty replacement pair (they were really cool about replacing them both times) and I said that I wasn't going to buy another pair, but I may end up having no choice but buy them again.

I went to Cabelas when I was in Michigan and tried on just about every pair of wide boots they had with no luck.

I tried a pair of Salomans, they are awesome and built like a tank, but not wide enough, even with a 1/2 size larger.

I'm looking for waterproof, uninsulated boots.

Thanks.
