I am currently on my third pair in six years and can say without hesitation that they are remarkably well-made boots. I have had two pairs re-heeled, and one of those pair re-soled (as the cork sole does wear down after about two years). Unfortunately, no shoe repair place I have found has cork replacement soles-so the closest replacement is to go with leather. Aside from the sole wearing down, the top of the boot is nearly bullet-proof. I've never had the stitching wear out on any of my pairs. (I sold my oldest pair to a friend, he's still wearing them!). Expensive little buggers, though!
