European-built quality, technical prowess, and Gore-Tex weatherproofing.
- Gore-Tex waterproof breathable membrane protects your toes from moisture outside (foul, wet weather) and allows sweaty moisture inside your boot to escape to the outside
- Smartlite mudguard keeps messy, sopping mud from creeping into your footwear while you navigate particularly nasty sections of trail
- Boot last has a medium-volume shape, it's narrower in the heel and achilles for control, and it features a roomier forefoot and tapered toebox to accommodate thicker hiking socks and swollen toes
- Ventilation from ballistic textile helps keep your feet cool, and the tough synthetic and leather shrug off sharp rocks and trail hazards
- Northotic Pro+ footbed uses EVA for durability, a cradle-shaped heel for control plus gel for heel cushioning, and an OrthoLite forefoot for padding
- Cradle heel shape and SR2 insole board provide support for carrying heavy loads but still allow for enough response so you can feel the trail below your foot
- Vibram outsole has durable, reliable build and offers supreme traction on everything from wet, loamy trails to loose, rocky desert terrain
- Stainless steel eyelets and locking instep eyelets keep your laces locked in place

Did anyone feel these boots were a little...
Did anyone feel these boots were a little cramped around the little toe? Just got mine, feel tight, however if I take the footbed out they are too roomy. Maybe a different insole?
Just tight around the small toe. Anyone else have this problem before breaking in?
I personally wouldn't risk using boots that didn't feel right. If you choose to try and keep them, I'd suggest putting on the socks you plan to use with them and walk around the house all day with them on and see how they feel. Any discomfort with a day in the house is probably going to equal misery out on the trail. IMO
Boots are the only thing between you and the earth.
Most higher end hiking and mountaineering boots seem to be more of a "European" cut. For me, I normally wear a size 10 in all boots/shoes, my Verbera Backpacker GTX's are a size 10 1/2.
Worth less boot
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
These boot are not even worth half of what they are charging for them. For starter, they offer very little ankle support and the sole is just to flimsy, i could feel every rock or pebble as i hiked. The insole is no better, just paper thin, when you shell out 270 dollars for boot, at least the insole should be half way decent. And to think, i could have purchased the Asolo Powermatic for about the same price. Save your money folks, stay away from this boots, i am so angry for purchasing this boots, that i could set fire to them

Two 13k' peaks on the first hike in these boots.
So Far So Great
I have a size 10 foot of what I would call an average width.
I got the size 10 1/2 in these boots and they feel great right out of the box. The arch is well supported and my heel doesnt have any movement and is comfortably cradeled. The toe box is just right for my feet. I do recommend trying these on with the socks you plan on wearing, like most backpacker/mountaineering boots they seem sized a little small. At the end of this hiking year I'll see the durability.
