    Sooner or later, it will start leaking the grease and this was the reason why Honda moved to a different band design.

    If you followed the instruction on how to install the double loop style properly, should last for years even after the grease started breaking down.
    I've reused that kind of style boot bands and they are just fine since more than 10 years. If the grease breaks down over time it's ok for me to have a sign or a leaking boot to overhaul them again every 15 years or so.

    Nevertheless very interesting information on the different boot band types and proper venting.
    @UnhuZ: If you are unsure you can do one axle first then compare the old with the new one regarding air in the boots when compressing them.
