I currently wear Asolo TPS 520 GTX boots. Love them, very sturdy, full grain leather uppers, Vibram sole, and they can also be re-soled if they wear out.
Been on many extended trips, Juan De Fuca, WCT, etc. With proper maintenance, these boots will last a VERY long time.
Edit: After a couple years, the waterproofing has been absolutely amazing. After a particularly muddy or wet hike, I clean them off, let them air dry, and use mink oil a couple times of year to protect the leather, while still allowing the Gore tex to breathe.
