Discover the difference
Zamberlan's tag-line underneath their logo says "Discover the Difference", so I put them to the test against other backpackers in my quiver. First, I just compared them visually, and indeed, the Vioz Plus GT RR was the beefiest in appearance, but oddly, it was also the lightest. I was initially concerned about the mileage it would require to break these boots in, but it was minimal. I didn't feel any discomfort, hotspots, or circulation issues after about 11 miles of hiking in these boots. I have seriously never experienced the combination of this level of comfort and durability. I will have to put these boots in my Last Will and Testament because they will probably outlive me.
