I've been wearing these for 6 years, and I see no sign of wear except in the soles which look like they might go another 3-4 years. I hike everyday besides my hunting. Plus I just wear them all the time they're so comfortable.
No breakin was needed. I put them on for the first time and went for a hike. Warm and completely water proof. I recommend them highly.

Yeah, flannel shirts, wranglers, and boots is pretty much my wardrobe.

Throw in some camo, and i'm set.

It's good being an old fart that nobody cares what I look like.

All depends on which season for me. I like soft soled Brahma's for bowhunting, either my Rockies or Danner's for rifle season and my Columbia's for mt lion season. The rest of the time I like my Double H boots. If Nike made a stiff ankled shoe with hunting tread I'd wear them in archery season especially if they came in air camo. LOL

I agree that the Cabela's Perfekt boot is a great boot; I prefer the lower version though. I use these for archery elk in the Cabinet Mtns. & for late season mule deer. For my summer hikers I prefer to wear Merrrell Intecept's; they are lightweight, breath well, & hold up to all the wear & tear you can dish out. They are my favorite shoe out there.

I'm gonna try them on.I'm planning a trip over the summer to Cabelas in PA.Meindl has a good reputation for making a quality product..made in Germany not China is another plus.

I was also thinking of danner pronghorns..anyone wear these? i believe they're still made in America.

The minute you put them on you'll stop looking at the other boots. I did.

Did you read the reviews?
