How long does this last when your boots are in use? I'm worried that when I use it the water will run off it at home in the sink, but once I get then out on the trail in hard use conditions the product will wear off quickly and my boots will start to absorb water again. Can anyone tell me, from experience, how well this product holds up in heavy use conditions?

How is this boot for hiking? Would it be comfortable to go, say, 10 miles a day hiking into a climb with a pack on my back through snow? I have asked at REI, and they tell me to get a regular winter boot, but to me those don't look sturdy enough to be hiking with 50-70 lbs on my back. Will this one be comfortable for that, and keep my feet warm during active use in temps approaching 0� F?

Also, I wear a size 13 US Mens, should I get a size 47 in these, or up it to a 48? What is the fit like?

What is the temperature rating on this boot? I am looking for a mountaineering boot that will keep my foot warm during winter hikes and climbs. For instance will this boot be comfortable on a snowshoe approach of about 10-12 miles in temps close to zero? If not, is there a boot out there that will. I want something that I an use to then climb the mountain, but is supportive enough for a multi day trek and will keep my feel warm.

I hope this question made sense.

How are these boots for winter hiking? My friends are planning a multi day trip that will involve snowshoeing, crampon wear, and possibly some non technical climbing. How are these boots during the winter? If I wear a thick pair of wool socks will my feel stay warm enough?
After spending as much as I did on these I would like to keep using them all year instead of buying a different pair for the winter season.

Does anyone know if these. Can be resoled, or rather has anyone here had their Flames resoled? My experience has been that the sole wears out long before the upper does, and I would hate to throw away a great feeling pair of boots that I love simply because the sole wore out, especially after it took me three trade ins at the REI to finally find the boot that worked for me. So, that's my question, does anyone have any experience having these resoled, and if so will you please post pics?
