Which pair do you have?I bought a pair of the Miendls last Aug. or early Sept. Wore them to work for a couuple weeks to break them in then hunted elk for 9 days here in Nv. I've worn them to work a couple dozen times since. If I took a damp rag and wiped the dust and dirt off them they would pass as
brand new out of the box boots.
They are quite possibly the most comfortable hunting boots I have ever owned. And they're about $100 cheaper than Crispies and $200 cheaper than Kenetreks.
