The BEST Boot for Backpacking/Hiking

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I can not give enough praise for this boot. I just ordered my second pair of these for a summer trek. The first pair of 520's went hiking at Philmont twice, Several Colorado trips, West Virginia, Arkansas, and were used as daily wearers in-between. The only reason for the second pair is because I wore a hole in the Gore-Tex and the soles are getting worn down after many years of heavy use. Boot fits extremely well and is incredibly comfortable. Never had an issue with sole-separation or stitching problems. They just look a little scuffed. But hey! They're Backpacking boots!
