After a terrible experience with Meindl Burma Pro I was recommended the Scarpa Terra and they are AWESOME.............apart from one fatal flaw.....
YOU CANNOT RESOLE THESE BOOTS!
Yes that's right, they have a Vibram sole but it is a direct injection moulded sole, that helps explain why they are so amazingly comfortable (and believe me they are amazing). This means that the sole will not come away from the boot (beats the Meindl hands down on that front where both soles FELL OFF mine!) and guarantees their watertight-ness.
Like other reviewers on this site my sole wore away and hey presto after only 14 months of proud dog walking (about 1 mile a day on tarmac and 5 miles on fields) the sole wore down and began to leak water - from the bottom up through to the lining). Once again a great boot with a pretty major flaw.
I challenge anyone to find a more comfortable boot. But the $64,000 question - would I buy another pair?
Sorry Scarpa - NO, these are expensive items and should not be considered disposable, find a way to make these soles replaceable and I would buy the Scarpa Terra again in a heartbeat.
