They might need to be re-soled in another year.



This^^^ Good work boots aren't cheap. I've been wearing the Whites 400V's for 40 years now, mud, rocks, poof dirt in trenches, and a lot of concrete time. I can't find another boot that holds up as well and doesn't kill my feet. I now have 3 pairs of rebuilt boots on hand that I alternate now and then.
The one time I had a failure with a whites boot it wasn't really their fault, a 6 month old boot ripped out at the arch, I had been working in deep sand and I'm sure that didn't help but I took the boot in begging for a quick repair. My spare pair was in for a rebuild and was no where near being done.
They gave me a new pair for half price and rebuilt the ripped out pair for no charge. That is customer service.
