Beware.I lived in Alaska for nearly a decade and had a pair of Xtratufs for the last three or so years. They were fantastic; everyone up there loved Xtratufs and I became a believer.I moved out of staff a few years ago and, recently, my pair grew to worn and I had to replace them. But the new pair only lasted a couple of months before falling apart. Specifically, the heel began to peel away from the sole — they were no longer waterproof, to say the least. I looked around online and read about the complaints from other purchasers, some of whom suggested the switch to a Chinese producer may be at fault.I decided to give Xtratufs the benefit of the doubt. I ordered a replacement pair (in retrospect I should've returned them). But the new pair suffered from the same problem in roughly the same timeline.I'm not impressed. Save your money and go to another producer.
We have a brewery and when these were made in USA they lasted for 10 years, but now that they are made in China they lasted 6 months before cracking and rubber completely worn off.
I had a pair of USA made XTRATUF, since I first purchased them, in Alaska, back in 2002. This year (2016), they finally wore through and I decided to replace them with another pair. Much was my surprise when I found that they were now made in China. I could feel that fact the moment I pulled the first boot on to my foot. These are much narrower than the old pair and the sole is much more rigid. I've been reading about other issues with Chinese manufactured XTRATUF boots and now think I should have invested in another brand.
This company had the best boot money could buy when they were made in Illinois. For a little background, I’m a commercial fisherman. My first pair lasted over 2 years. The only reason I replaced them was because I wore the sole out from everyday use. Not because they leaked or the inside lining was tearing causing blisters on my heals, etc! I’ve never had a pair of boots hold up that long doing the kind of work I do with the hours I’m on my feet. Which leads to now. The Chinese boots are crap! The company claimed in media posts that they moved to China because their current facility was outdated and couldn’t keep up to demand. Great solution! Or you could expand and keep the product and jobs here! Thanks!! Well, they moved. The product is inferior but I still buy them. That’s my fault. The cost never went down by the way. I’m sure cost of production did. I’ve tried others and these are still the most comfortable until they break down in a few months. Someone needs to do the American thing and build a better product here and put these jack a#%s out of business.
I should have listened to the other reviewers. I purchased the EXACT same boot a few years ago and they are starting to wear out so I decided to order another pair. I attached a picture so you can see how the quality of the boot has dropped significantly. On the left is the new boot and on the right is the same boot from about 2.5 years ago.
