Great Garmont Boot
I have owned a couple pairs of the older Kiowa Gore-Tex boots. These appear to be a continuation of those since the Kiowa turned into the lighter Kiowa Vegan. These are very waterproof, very comfortable for me, and (so far) durable. I have always been a fan of Garmont boots and these do not disappoint. I have used them a 2-3 dozen times per year for 4 years now and they have held up nicely.
I did use them on Fraser Island in Australia a couple years ago and got a considerable amount of sand in between the liner and sole. Some of the sand is still in there so it might not be the best boot for hiking in a sandy/beach area. I still love them though.
