Over the past few years I have been trying to find a shoe that would last for more than a year. I'm a landscaper and wear the shoes from April to November, except in extreme wet conditions. It was almost exactly one year to the day, that my Kujo shoe separated at the top and were no longer water proof. Having your feet wet for the entire day is the worst! As far as the rest of the shoe, they were comfortable and were pretty durable. To say the least I'm pretty disappointed they only lasted a year.
