Love the kailash GTX
I love these boots. After all these years of wearing size 12 men's American, I am thrilled to switch to 45.5, or 11 2/3. I have never warn a pair of boots that were a better fit. Beyond that, they are light yet durable, rugged, and keep the wet out. I have come to think of them as a great hiking and backpacking boot. Couldn't be happier with my choice. I have only taken them out one week on trail so far, between 8200 and 6800 feet, they have performed well In cold, snow, sand, and slickrock.
