    I've had a pair of Zamberlans for about 5 yrs now. I use them primarily as a work boot. But as I've posted elsewhere they are comfy enough to wear all day at work or play and still come home and not remove them. I have a narrow foot, and flat feet to boot. I am relagated to wearing inserts in my footware for the rest of my time.
    Its the first expensive set of footware I have owned but won't be the last. These have been a great pair of boots for me. Quality made for sure. I love mine.
    Your sarcasm is way, waaaayyyyyyyy more sarcastic than mine!

    Purchased a pair from REI about 2 yrs ago. Choked when paying for them ($300) . However they are incredible. Miles and miles and miles of mud water rocks shale silt etc they are as good as the day I bought them. Only thing I have changed is a new pair of insoles and add a little mink oil every so often. Highly recommended

    $300 really isn't a lot for a quality boot these days. When I was guiding years ago I spent $379 plus shipping for a pair of Miendls "Mt. Elbrus" from Cabellas. I still have those boots almost 20 years later.....

    Jake, don't have experience with Zamberlans but have heard they are a good boot. This company is supposed to be fantastic. They carry Zamberlans as well as a few other top quality boots. Don't know if you'd be interested or not but they also are a custom boot maker. Check em out: https://lathropandsons.com/

    Comparing prices of boots 20 yrs ago to today is like comparing tv prices in the same context.
    Any way they are awesome boots. Picked up a back up pair yesterday at a hell of a good price

    Original post was to give a review on a brand of boots in question. Not to start a pissing match.

    I have a pair of the Zamberlan Vioz GT hiking boots. Awesome boots, very comfortable! I can stand for hours in them and not have back pain, they are water proof and very durable. The bad (I am assuming it is just my foot) I get terrible heel lift on my right foot. I have tried different insoles and lacing multiple ways. No good. They are collecting dust if your interested in trying them. size 10 regular.

    I have an acquaintance who guided fishing and hunting in Wyoming. He went through pairs of kenetreks in months time. He spent lots of time on his feet tending to horses, tack, gear, etc. Then he tried the zamberland and told me that they were lasting much longer for him......third hand of third hand of my cousin's uncle's sister story - for whatever that is worth.
