Quality has gotten worse.
My dad has a pair of Caribous that have been awesome for 15 years. I bought mine 1.5 years ago and they are falling apart. Made in China now. I wear them almost every day in the winter, and the soles have lasted. But the liners have ripped and the rubber part on the top/inner part of both boots have holes (the big toe knuckle area, if that makes sense). Look into other winter boots, because these are great at first but just don't last.
