    Ive got a buddy who all he will wear is the danner pronghorn. And he chukar hunts alot and walks alot and a majority is in the rocks and he will go through a pair and a half each year he also wears them as his everyday boots but he told me they do wear out easily but he likes them all because of how lightweight they are.

    Well bit the bullet today and bought a pair of Kenetrek's. Not bad for weight and feel very comfortable. Hopefully they work well for me.

    This likely comes down to personal preference, how hard you use them, and maybe a little luck.

    I've got something along the lines of 6 pairs of boots in service, of various thickness and construction.
    My lightly used Meindl (Denalis I think) boots that are about 5 years old have some cracking on the rubber on the upper.
    My lightweight pronghorns are about done and six years old, but are still certainly wearable.
    Actually my best wearing (and most used) are a 7 year old pair of cabelas outfitter series.

    I just picked up a new pair of Pronghorns for this season. (my lighter weight sneaker type Danners are crap and didn't make it through even a light season). I don't know if I'd spring for the Meindl Denalis based on my experience.

    They might be better now than the model I have.

    I found some Zamberlain boots on sale in November before a late season archery deer hunt. I put them on and didn't have a single problem. No leaks and no blisters. Several days of rain and a bunch of rugged country for deer and hogs, still in great shape with no visible wear.
