Dane Cwrote a review of La Sportiva Synthesis Mid GTX Hiking Boot - Men's on October 10, 2019
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
I first got to try these boots out a couple years back at TROMP which is an annual Goretex event we hold at Backcountry. I bought them finally after sitting in my cart for 2 years because I had a 4 day camping trip in Bears Ears for a research trip. I love the lacing system which is super simple. They are very breathable but also great for stomping around in puddles. We had some pretty gnarly terrain to traverse down in Moab and I was not worried at all about slippage with the grip system. I also enjoyed that the Heel had an extra thick rubber for Impacts. My dogs were thankfully not barking after 3 days of intense hiking and my socks stayed dry the entire time! 10/10 would highly recommend! Have since taken them hiking in the Uintas and I am hyped to have them anytime an impromptu hiking trip pops up!
