My Danners started leaking in about 3 years, but other than that they are still good boots. I'd buy a new pair, personally, while you save up for another high end pair. In my opinion, nothing ruins a hunt faster than constantly wet feet.
    Get them resoled, no question in my mind. Sorry I missed that question earlier.

    Love them. I have a super skinny foot so I had to change my lacing technique as well. The hardest part for me was getting used to stiff soled boots. Other than that, they are great
    Now therefore, please take your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field and hunt game for me.

    Video coming soon. A bit longer than I wanted. It takes a long time to upload. Hopefully it will be up tomorrow. Mark

    I am looking at new boots as I had Kenetreks for 3 years and had heel slip issues, but loved the boots other than that. So I'm considering the Lowas or maybe the Kenetreks again with a insole in the heel, unless they have fixed the problem.
    Curious on how guys like their Lowas vs Kenetreks?

    I just got an uninsulated pair in to try and I've been very impressed so far. Fits like an athletic shoe but wears like a well built mountain boot. I've been wearing them around the office to break them in and haven't had any of the issues previously mentioned. That said, I haven't had the chance to go on a actual hike with them either. The only down side I have noticed so far, is the leather is a bit squeaky and the lace loops down by the toe click a little bit during the stepping process. For rifle hunters I don't see this as much of a problem but for bowhunters it could be all the difference. I have a feeling both of these issues I am having will calm down with time and wear. I'll keep you posted as the antelope hunting season rolls around and we get into fall.
