Like most things, the quality of the material is the determining factor. Generally, I'd expect the more expensive boots to hold up better than the cheaper ones. The cheap soles are from low-end manufacturers and crack, flake away, and aren't as comfy as the better quality goods. So, if you're paying <$100 for some boots, regardless of the sole material, don't expect them to hold up long.

The crepe soles of my Clarks has started hardening (from dryness? or many gunk?)
Is there a way to return it to it's original sponginess?
I heard about placing them into an oven?

This is why they are slick in the rain. The front area when you walk is flat now from the last 10 months of wear, hence when I'm on tile at work that they wax and they are wet means you slide and pull your hamstring or some shit.

"Crepe" can refer to various types of rubber, but what this thread is about is called "plantation crepe." It's the soft, gummy rubber used on Clarks and Yuketens.

i have worn wallies in the rain multiple times. it's not well suited to it but not because you'll be slipping and sliding. it slides way less than leather soles on wet concrete. it's just not waterproof at all. water will get inside instantly.
