jgelleywrote a review of Scarpa ZG65 XCR Hiking Boot - Men's on August 4, 2008
I had a pair of Vasque Sundowners for years and loved them. They were holding up well but I was soldering a pipe and dripped solder into the boot linings (Doh!) Couldn't get the solder out of the fabric. So, I did the research, read some reviews and decided on the Scarpas. I am totally pleased with the decision. As others have noted, they fit right out of the box and required no break-in period. Went for a six mile hike that day I received them and had no discomfort and no blisters! Very stable. I'm 5'9", 180 lbs. My foot is a little narrower than average and these fit great with a smartwool light-weight hiking sock. Great price and received them in three days with the free shipping. I highly recommend these boots!
