Very Comfortable but wear quickly

" I have had 3 pairs of the 978 boots. I walk daily on a combination of trails and roads often in wet weather. I love the fit and comfort of the boot. They really helped to relieve the chronic plantar fasciitis I suffered for several years but the soles wear out in about 6 months. I have a couple of pairs sitting around with tops in very good shape but with worn out soles. My most recent pair is less than 6 months old and the seam ripped out where the toe bumpers meet the body on the uppers. These are great boots. I keep buying them for the fit but I wish the boots lasted longer. "
