All for me grog
I'm not sure about boot repairs. I once got a pair of boots resoled but the uppers didn't really take the strain and started leaking. I'd paid £25 for the job so I wasn't letting them go until I'd reduced it to 99p per trip. My feet regularly soaked and froze that winter.

I use Zamberlan but I did go hooring after Salomon a couple of times until an evil pair ripped my ankles apart. Fortunately they leaked after less than 20 trips. I've a solid leather pair with over 100 trips which have outlasted their leather / goretex successors whose uppers went after about 90 outings. The current leather / goretex pair are on about 30 trips but took an evil grinding in the icy snow this January. You pity an Italian boot which could have been dispatched to the Alps but instead earns its living in acid bogs, gneiss and crusty snow.
