Works for me

I previously had a pair of Teva Kitmah mids. I expected them to be short lived like High Tec or Merrill boots that I've had (and no longer purchase). The Kitmah boots split a little on the seam between the nylon and the synthetic plastic material above the sole in short time than I expected. I repaired the split with some seam seal. However, the Kitmah boots simple would not wear out. I wore them daily. I used them for hiking, for hiking in the snow, for winter boots when the snow was packed and not fresh and powdery, for carpentry work, and for doing mechanics work on the trucks and tractor. They just hung in there as comfortable as could be. I actually bought a second set of the Kitmah boots from STP to wear after I wore out the first set. That is how happy I was with them. Unfortunately, my feet went from a 10.5 to an 11 before I could use them and I had to sell them. Last year I started wearing running shoes for hiking. So I didn't replace the Kitmah boots when it was finally time to throw them in the trash after three years of service. But this winter I realized I really wanted another pair of Teva mids to wear during the winter when conditions were too nice for pacs. That is to say, to do the job the Kitmahs had accomplished for so many years. STP didn't have any Kitmahs, but they had the Raith boots that look just like the Kitmahs, so I am expecting similar service from them. Because of the potential split area like the Kitmah boots I can't give them a five star, but for comfort and wear I would give them a five star. So that averages out to a four star rating.
