Current boots
 
GS3 - 561.1 miles

GS3: New pair of Grisport Storm, bought 7.5.14.
 

Discarded boots

MWA2 Mountain Warehouse Adventurer "waterproof" fabric boots. Replacements for faulty pair 18.9.14. Lasted 172 miles before fabric shredded on instep.
MWA _ Mountain Warehouse Adventurer "waterproof" fabric boots. (bought £27 22.8.14, eyelet pulled out 17.9.14 and exchanged for new pair. Lasted 55.6 miles)
KM2 - Karrimor Mount. Will I ever learn? 2nd pair bought (£32.99 30.7.14). "Waterproof" but soaked by heather during 1st trip 31.7.14.
AF  - Cheap (£16.99) Aldi fabric boots, first used 30.4.14. Sole peeled off one boot 29.7.14 after 197.6 miles.
GS - Grisport Storm (leather) - comfortable and inexpensive boots that wore well. On 20.1.14, after 1593.2 miles, the right boot cracked, probably prematurely because it had been dried in heat too often.
GS2: New pair of Grisport Storm, first used 6.1.13. Retired 10.1.16, when sole and upper seemed about to part company, after 1628.1 miles.
MLT: Mountain Warehouse Traveller, bought 17.6.13. Budget-priced fabric boots. Labelled "waterproof" but soaked through on second outing. On 4.9.13, the left boot suddenly split close to where the upper joins the sole.  The inner structure of the left heel had previously given cause for concern.  Wrecked after only 205.2 miles. Obtained full refund from Mountain Warehouse.
KM: *Karrimor Mount - rubbish quality fabric boots that developed holes in the side fabric after less than 180 miles of wear. 
I thereafter wore them only in dry weather until the holes weakened the fabric too much, and I finally dumped them after 375.7 miles.
MLA: Mountain Life Alpine (fabric), bought 17.2.12 - they have a large tab saying "waterproof" on them, but after about 180 miles, they started soaking up water. 26.4.12: 433 miles: I was reproofing these when I discovered that the adhesive holding the sole of one boot to the upper had separated for about three inches.  Sealed with impact adhesive, but ineffective, so discarded.
