I know what you are saying big lurks. Suppose it depends how much stick you give them. 2 seasons doesn't sound long but if you're out every day of the week mooching plus lamping a few nights a week I suppose it soon takes its toll.

I'm gonna give these a bash. If they last a season for 30 I will be happy...

Gaz I've had a pair of the same boots now for 2 seasons and they were grade 1 and they've served me well
Bit stiff for digging but for the same price I bought the hiax to use, if there good enough for the military then there good enough for anything

Try the Sneekers. Light and comfy but you pay for it with poor ankle support.

Should have treated the blisters first lol, my Mother bought a pair of altbergs for hill walking, first use the leather scuffed through leaving permanent white patches on the fronts, very soft leather, and I'd have expected better for that kind of money, she says they are comfortable though
