Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs small

I had these for a little over a year and used them for occasional day hikes, no back-packing. They were a good fit and had good grip and were light enough to not aggravate my bad knee.
One of the eyelets tore out, no big deal. Then the other day I noticed that the sole on one of the boots had a deep crack and was about to come apart at the ball area. When I say deep crack, I mean the sole was about to be in two pieces.
I guess they are like everything else these days, designed to last a year or less, then you need look to China again for a replacement. I just wish I knew where to get a good pair of boots from Italy or USA that would last for years.
It was actually the Vibram soles that broke.The rest of the boot was pretty good except for that eyelet. I would not purchase another boot with vibram soles.

I like the reviews and have ordered a pair but I was interested to know if these "Sky Walker" "The Soles of Records" soles are as good as the old Vibram lug soles (100s or the 100Rs). Will they last as long and are they as effective on dirt inclines, grassy cross-country hiking etc.(not interested in rock or concrete,I work and play in the hills). Thanks
