Got these boots off of SAC for $70...A steal for sure. Wore them all over the place, canyoneering, mountaineering, in the Grand Canyon twice, 40+ summits and 10.5 Colorado 14'er, and worked at Philmont Scout Ranch in Northern New Mexico with them. They were very very comfortable the whole time I had them, never got a blister what so ever. However, mid-way through the summer, the seems starting to come out of the leather. Slowly, the whole outside began to fall apart to where there was gaping holes. Surprisingly, they were still somewhat waterproof. I loved this boots, but it just didn't hold up to what I threw at them. I soaked them day in and day which was probably a reason why the seems came out. The soles did very well with all the use, but not much else. Sending them back.
