Sadly, some 4 months down the line, the ridges on the sole have worn away, the midsole has collapsed and I can feel every rock or large bump on the path in the ball of my foot. Waterproofing is still good it seems, but the comfort has dropped astoundingly. I’ve been told they cannot be resoled, so this has become an expensive lesson. It also renders the shoe entirely unsustainable from an environmental perspective. If only it were possible to replace the sole, it may be a worthwhile purchase.
First, the good: comfortable straight out of the box, waterproof - hiking under the rain with dry feet feels very good, nice sole and good traction.
The bad: Everything above did not last for more than two month. After two month of wear sole ridges started to wear down, midsole cushioning almost completely gone and I started to feel every rock on the trail with the front part of my foot. Both shoes are no longer waterproof as material got worn down at the place where it bends.
Conclusion: very high expectations were failed by poor craftsmanship and design.
They are extremely comfortable for both daily wear and light hikes but both pairs failed at the same place.
Tye material on the crease point in-between the midsole and front foot on the inside face wore out relatively quickly.
Both pairs still had good soles and overall construction just a shame about this weak point.
Will probably try another style as all my quest boots have taken more abuse than any other brand so hope this is just a minor design glitch.
