Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've had these boots for two years. They came highly recommended for plantar fasciitis, and they've been as good as advertised. They are completely waterproof, comfortable out of the box, and clean up as good as new even after a few hundred miles of wear. The materials are durable and the waterproofing has held up flawlessly. I recently submerged my foot on a loose puncheon and only took a tiny bit of water where it lapped over the back collar. I have not needed to add any special insoles or heel cups. They are perfect. The boots do run a half size large in women's sizes. We hike in rugged, ever-changing terrain and weather conditions in New England, and these boots have held up to everything thrown their way. From the Presidentials in New Hampshire to lengthy treks in the ADKs, they have been comfortable and dry. The traction is excellent and, although they can be a little warm on the hottest days, they breathe extremely well and stay dry inside. If you're looking for a durable, waterproof, all around hiking shoe, this is a great choice!
