Most comfortable boots I own

I got these boots for a summer of hiking a year ago, and fell in love with them. They are incredibly comfortable right out of the box, they don't even need breaking in. Over time they just conform more to your feet. When they get wet they can get a little deformed, but a good days worth of hiking will fix that, and they'll be right as rain again. My one complaint was that in the previous model, the third aglet down was connected all the way around the boot by a strap that tended to break after some good hiking (or a week of building trail, which was what I was using them for). I purchased my pair of boots from EMS, who with Garmont's warranty gave me a new pair. However, a few months later the same thing happened again. From what I've seen, the newest models have fixed this problem and the strap is now protected by leather, so I'm in the process of seeing if I can get a new pair. Overall, the best pair of boots I've owned (and I've owned a lot). I get zero blisters and couldn't ask for better foot comfort for two weeks of backpacking with a 50lbs pack

What you have looks like the Zenith hike GTX, while this model is the Zenith mid GTX. small difference, but that's why that strap isn't on this one
