    Just put them in there for an example, I wear Haix boots which might be more in your price range, I paid about $300NZD for mine so I'd imagine you could get them a lot cheaper in the US.

    I would like to suggest something different.

    Lundhags! (made their first boots 1932)

    Its a Swedish company that make boots according to the shell principle.
    No membrane that will brake but a boot the will last for a very long time, made in Sweden.

    I've always liked the look of those boots.

    Depending on what size you wear, you might be in luck. The following website has the Asolo TPS 520 GV Hiking Boots on sale for $216.74 with free shipping. Once I find a pair of boots that I like, I have a hard time switching, if the same boots are still being made. Since you got some great use out of the first pair, perhaps this lower price will help you reward Asolo with some more of your business (even though it is slightly more than the amount mentioned in your original post).

    They currently have the 8.5, 9, 10, 10.5, 13 and 14 in stock for the $216.74 price.

    Thanks all for the input. I wanted to try for American made. So I picked up a pair if the Chippewa 8" from cabelas. They are made Missouri and seem solid. I figure with cabelas return policy I don't have much to lose.

    I'll wear them around the house for a week or so and then take them to the woods.

    Before you decide that the old boot can not be resoled contact these folks.

    http://www.resole.com/

    I have a pair of Timberland Pro's that "could not be resoled" I sent them off to Resole America and I got them back 10 days later with a new sole and good as new. Just sayin'......................

    Carolina Shoe (or whatever they are called) makes a heckuva boot. Cheaper than Chippewa (better Customer service in my experience as well). I have had my last pair for four years and they are still going strong, and I beat the heck out of em (they were work boots and my everyday boots for three of those years).

    I have a pair of these and I use them just about every day. I am dreading the day the soles wear out. They are a great boot.
