Wolverine King Caribou III 9'' GORE-TEX Insulated Waterproof Hunting Boots for Men
On the second fishing trip I took with these my feet started getting wet. The sole was seperating from boot. Most of time just standing in boat fishing. Not much hiking or rough usage.

I have wore these boots for 2 weeks of just everyday walking ant the boots are leaking( I live in a wet area) and the sole started to come off so I will never buy this boot and I will definatly NEVER wear them hunting

Wolverine Boots = Comfort
I bought these boots based on the reviews that I had read about them being lightweight but of decent quality. I have to agree with those reviews , I am very satisfied with the quality & comfort of these King Caribou three 9" GORE-TEX boots.
It does not get to cold here in West Texas so I really cannot speak of there insulating efforts , but for me in this area they are just what the doctor ordered !

what the heck?
I have to say that first off, when I got these boots, they were very comfortable and pretty warm. Waterproof too. that was in 10/2011. That's about all for the good stuff.
I wore them for two days in 2011 bear season and one week in deer season. Fine.
I then wore them 2x a month for training, 8 hours or less.
I noticed that the rubber was wearing quickly on the bases of the treads, which exposed a fabric inside.
In May, 2012, I went to a one week training for patrol rifles, which included walking on 3/4" stones and cement, during that week, I wore through numerous tread nubs and the rubber edges of the boots started to completely shred and hang off, exposing the fabric coloring underneath.
these boots are complete junk and please do not buy if you plan to wear them more than once a month. A good pair of boots should last substantially longer than these. I'm attributing this wear to the boot pattern in the sole rather than a standard black/tan all rubber or composite sole. it appears that the rubber or composite wore completely off the fabric.
This really hurts me because every pair of wolverine boots I have ever bought up until this pair (probably 8 different pairs/styles) has fit great upon purchase, have worn like iron and held up great for the duration.
these, however, not so much.
