Kevlar bell boots? Worth the cost?

I'm going to need some long-term use bell boots for my gelding. These would mainly be used for turn-out, some schooling. He's now wearing wedge shoes on both front feet. I seem to be going through rubber velcro bell boots by about one pair per month. Are the Woof Wear $70-$80 bell boots worthwhile? If they are going to last for at least a year, I think it would be worth the investment. If they don't hold up that long, maybe not.

I would love to hear your experiences and thoughts on these, both good and bad.

If they're mainly for turnout I wouldn't put a no turn bell boot on him, like the resboot posted above or any bell boot like that.. There are tougher rubber boots out there. I've never had experience with the Woof Wear bell boots but kevlar is some pretty though stuff.

My RES and Classic Equine boots are lasting a ridiculously long time. And this is coming from the owner of a horse who once put a giant whole clean through a bell boot.
