I bought these to replace my old Presidio boots, which I've been wearing 4 or 5 winters and are showing signs of wear though still waterproof. I'd give the old ones five stars. I'm disappointed to find that the Presidio II is made of obviously cheaper & thinner materials: a suede-like finish instead of regular leather, a strip of synthetic fabric at the back of the boot, thinner layers on the upper though the lining on the foot seems similar. These look like a cheaper, flimsier version of the old, excellent boot. So many companies replace materials with synthetics, lighter-weight components, cheaper and less likely to last; I'm deeply disappointed that Keen has gone this route. That said, I'll see how they do on the ground next winter.
