As ever it depends on the boot and its price!.
My 1st ever pair of wading boots were Orvis Battenkill brogues with felt sole and tungsten studs.
Best boots I ever had!.I'd had them re- felted by a pro. cobbler twice and the studs were still viable when the boot finally fell apart.If I remember right I got something like 7 years of good use from them.
Sadly they were "up graded" and subsequent boots by Orvis weren't as good as the one I had any way!.
The current boots look good enough and the Orvis Titanium stud is the best retro fit stud out there, got to be worth a punt.Think the boots are up there with Simms!.
