    Thanks @kotuku, any idea how to contact this bloke? in all honesty it probably is an easy repair but since im not a vulcaniser myself I don't want to use something that leads to a breakdown of the rand or existing glue.

    Good boots those but man the soles wear out quickly. Its a shame theyre not resoleable.

    I thought the soles could be done.
    The inner sole breaks down on mine since they get worn in the yards

    I was going to say that, I've had a couple of pairs and both did it. Still, a pretty sturdy boot once you get used to them.
    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    I've tried a heap of different types. At the moment I'm using Bestard Coto's for my all rounders - I'm happy with them and they're light. And I have a pair of Hanwag Tibets as well which I am liking also. Both I can get here in NZ for about half the price of a Lowa/Meindl without having to import. I wear these type of boots everyday, unless I am on a work site where I wear Haix chainsaw boots.

    The Bestards are going well, but on my last trip the sole started separating from one boot, so I've sent that up to Ezidirect to get repaired. The Hanwags are going really good, really stable and grip well. They're also really water tight. (Hanwags were founded by a brother of the founder of Lowas). I can't justify spending ~$700-800 on a pair of boots when in my experience with those higher priced brands (Lowa and Meindl) if they don't last 1.5-2 times longer.

    Yeah. Bestard are the best boots I have ever worn. But they don't last like other well known brands.

    Granted when I get 18 months out of a pair of lowa tibet I do feel a bit ripped off. Where do you get Bestards from?

    Hopefully my Karakorums don't fall apart as seems to be a few peoples experience with them, they are an awesome comfy boot an I decided to try them as I several shepherds on big high country farms that live in their boots and all recommend them.

    I have the problem of bumps on the back of my heel from gum boots wearing when a kid!
    Also finding light boots with a nice flexible shank for bush stalking that are warm and water proof! The other problem is finding the time to try on as many brands as possible. Is used to use those Viking bush boots but I now feel the cold to much after living in Africa for two and a half years....
