loud, yes, the nb 1000's (1001's too i think) have a lifetime warranty 1 pair replacement. they are pretty cushy, and nice for wide feet since they come in variable widths.
tennsdog, i like the barricade II's much better than the figjams. they're prolly the best all around shoe i've tried. figjams are decent, but feel kinda bulky (heavy), and aren't as durable. also no warranty!
