Great Boots and no Break In Time!!

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

My husband and I had planned a trip to New Zealand - the first portion being a hunting trip - so I needed a good pair of good hiking boots. In the past I've worn a popular brand for men based in Oregon - and even though they claim to make a women's boot - they will not change the 'last' they make them on which is narrow. I had purchased Salomon in the past and did like them - so I decided to try this pair. I did get the brown (not sure why Salomon would make a blue boot) - so it would coordinate with both hunting clothes and hiking clothes. They were immediately comfortable and never gave me any of that pinching feeling I usually get at the bottom of my foot due to a narrow boot. No rubbing anywhere - I am so impressed!!! The guys at BackCountry were great at getting them to me quickly as my time was running out!
