I have a pair of nearly identical boots from Cabelas made the same way, same soles, etc that are 16 years and in need of a re-sole. (I wore them on an 17 mile in a day hike, where a good portion was in the sun on asphalt, and the adhesive on the soles/tread finally gave up). I also have a pair of Timberland Pro steel toed that are really going strong after 15 years.
