Bought my first pair of this boot in 2002. Just had to replace as heels now wearing out. No question of repeating the prescription.
These are the most comfortable, useful boots I have ever had. Wear them at least half the year as an outdoor shoe/boot. I am more a traveller than a hillwalker but these boots are ideal for all terrains and conditions. Comfortable, lightweight enough to wear in all circumstances and not too heavy for hot climates. A travellers boot, I have worn them in every situation, climbing/walking at 13,000feet in the Andes,coastal path walking in Catalonia, or exploring the streets of Amsterdam in cold,wet December.
New boots equally comfortable and moulding to fit in hours. Expect the new pair to be as good. Oh, old pair not going out but now reserved for gardening.
