Question, what do you consider wearing out a little fast? How many seasons/miles? I'm looking at buying a pairCrispi fan here and +1 for black ovis also.
I have run Thor’s from the Grand Canyon to snow With a set of gaiters. For super cold, I would want some insulation but I really like them As an all around boot. Mine have stayed water proof and the uppers have held up well. If I had a gripe, it is that the soles seem to wear a little fast. I have a set of Idaho’s too. Love them but they see a lot less use since I found the Thor’s. If I was spending a lot of time in cold snow, I might go with an insulated Nevada.
