I have hiked thousands of miles in leather hiking boots...Vasque, Scarpa, and Limmer and while they are all good durable supportive boots but they are heavy. I tried the Montrail Stratos XCR last year after getting tired of hot feet in the Limmers. The Montrails were awesome from the get go. They fit my duck-like wide feet, they are extremely supportive reminding me of volleyball shoes to a point. Theyre lightweight, waterproof, what else do you need? Oh did I mention that the soles are the best hikers ever for gripping all types of rock and terrain? I mostly peak bag with some trail running workout sessions. These shoes are the best. I have around 750 miles out of first pair before blowing out the side. I ordered new and took them up Adams and Madison for their first trip, no problem. Its a best buy!!!!!
