    No, but quite often LL Bean will replace the entire boot with new if the soles wear out before the uppers.

    I have a pair of Scarpa full leather boots I LOVE!!! I found them online for $160, when they are usually $250. I also have a pair of Zamberlin which have turned out to be very very good boots. They were around the same price. I'm hard on boots with all of my outdoor activities and have come to realize I need to pay $200-250 right out the door to get a pair of boots to last more than a year. I used to do Vasque and Danner back when they were worth it, but sadly they moved the majority of their manufacturing to China. Good luck.

    Another Danner fan here. They offer a pretty good military discount and tax free if you order through AAFES. I wear mine daily and they seem very well suited for all weather conditions from extreme Arizona heat to Alaskan moderate cold. The leather is double stitched and all of the eyelets are metal. The inserts they come with have great arch support and are the best out of any boot I have ever purchased. They also have all sizes in regular and wide so lots of fitting choices.

    Well, since Red Wings are out, how about a pair of Corcoran Field boots? Look like jump boots, but made from the same leather regular combats are (softer thicker stuff that doesn't need spit polishing. Double leather on the toe and heel, Vibram soles and DEFINITELY resolable. Quick laces too. I lived in mine in the service, and as a grunt, I put them through hell. 12 years later, I still beat the hell out of the SAME PAIR.

    Here's a link to a list on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Corcoran-Mens-.../dp/B008M2284O
