Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
The soles are extra sticky. The leather provides a great barrier against the elements. I have walked through creeks and my feet remained dry. However, I have only owned these boots for 6 months before the lining started falling apart in both boots despite proper cleaning and care. If you want a boot for occasional use, this might be worth it. However, this boot is too expensive for someone who requires something durable that will last through the long, tough hikes.
