These boots were magnificent! First time I put them on they were comfortable and it only took about 1 mile for me to break them in.
I have had several boots, and these are by far the most comfortable. Boots are generally lacking in one of five areas: waterproof, lightweight, affordable, comfortable, and durable. These boots have it all! (I did put some Dr. Scholl's massaging gel inserts in them)
These boots went on a 3 day trip, and during that time, I crossed a 3 ft deep and 15 ft wide stream, and my feet stayed dry! In addition, I did many uphill and downhill sections of trail, and not once did it bother my feet. Mud and brambly bushes did not scratch nor damage the boots. After a 13 mile day with a 40 lb pack, my feet had no hot spots or blisters. And for all that, these boots are lightweight.
With the light weight of under 3 lbs, and the 1 year warranty, its hard to go wrong buying these boots and I would suggest them! In addition, they are true to size, at least for me. The only downside, is that these boots did scrap the back of my Achilles tendon a lot, but I am sure that was just a fluke and nothing else.
The picture is what the boots looked like after the 23 mile trip. As you can tell, they just look a little dirty!
