Nearly all the boots I’ve purchased recently have worn out very fast. So far none have lasted more than 3 months.
I’ve had the soles fall off two pairs of Rossi boots (301 Endura and Trojan), the elastic go on a pair of Redbacks (UBBK), I’ve destroyed two pairs of Rivers boots, and am now onto a pair of Mack Boots (Tradie) which seem to be holding up better.

So what durable boot brand would you recommend?

I wear Baxters, they're ok I normally get 8 months or so out of a pair. Have to admit the main reason I wear them is that they're part of our uniform issue so I don't have to pay for them .
Blundstones have always held up pretty well in my experience, although the best boots I've ever had were made by scarpa. They lasted for years and I probably could have gotten a couple more years out of them if I'd been able to afford to get them fixed.

Thumbs up for zip up Olivers. Mine last about 14 months in damp conditions, probably last a lot longer with some
moisture protection.

I’ve had a couple of pairs of zip up steel blues. They have been pretty good.

Before my work boots became a pair of converse sneakers I was lucky if my boots lasted 6months due to chemical and water attacking them constantly. After trying for years to find something comfortable I just ended up with gumboots with good insoles.
