Anyone ever tried the Stihl Lawngrips boots?

I just bought a pair of these today and was wanting to know if anyone has ever had these before and what you think of them?

they are the same as normal lawngrips. they perform very well, but dont last as i have posted many times here, the sole is way too thin. if they were half the price i would not care, but for that price to not even last 3/4 season it is over priced

Grassman is right about them not lasting as long as some other boots, but I just got another pair at Christmas because I love them. My last few pair has had "Stihl" on the side because I get them at the John Deere house.

I looked at them and thought they were to heavy. But if digging with a shovel the steel arch would be a plus.
My feet sweat bad, what I wear are Wolverine hunting boots from Bass Pro or Cabelas. There are different ones but the ones I like are the Antelope series. Gortex, waterproof and weight under 3lbs. I put a set of silicone insoles inside, hardly know you got them on. And my feet dont sweat.

Yea, mine were 89.99 for the mid top called the Pro. I'm not sure how much the high tops were.
