Boots for 100-180? Which ones?

I'm in desperate need of some new boots!

Not sure which to go for?

There's haix blue mountai 130.00

Haix protector pro's for 160.00

Tried on some arbotec?arborfell? they were comfy but made by elten (they make stihl boots and the last ones killed me!) 160.00 aQUA fell

Worried about the protector pro's soles..... or has this been sorted? been told only 3 month warrenty? thats crap....

Is it worth waiting for the show next week? like i say i'd like to get some asap!

Cheers chris

Haix protector pro's, never had any problems and very comfortable.
I would wait for the shows and have a good look around, chat with folks that know but bare in mind they are selling them so may try to fill you full of B S if they make more money on one brand than another.
You hold the cash

Plenty of good boots out there but have a look at the Husqvarna Technical 24 . The feedback from these is excellent.

Haix protector pro's

Great boots, must be on my 10th pair, like wearing my slippers to work and generally get 12 months out of a pair
