A Big Stiffy

- Fit: True to size
The Wrangell is a real stiff boot. Great quality construction. They take a while to break in. Going on a few months or so now. Ive been wearing mine 3 days a week for 10 hours or so doing tree work. Just about there. I had a set of Fuegos for two years and they were fantastic until the midsole cracked and broke. I totally loved those boots man. The vibrum soles were worn out and thin. I tried to get them fixed but a very reputable cobbler told me they were shot! I was bummed. Tree work is tough on boots and I have been through lots of brands. So, that being said, Wrangells are pretty much the same thing. The Wrangell is thinner leather(not noticeable), has the gore-tex and a rand. Thats the difference. Overall these boots are solid. Im not a huge fan of the gore-tex because of the inevitable let down of it leaking. Still waiting for that to happen. The rand is cool I guess for added protection. If you want a bomber heavy stiff boot, this or the Fuego is it. Have fun out there and stay safe.
The color is called "bronze" but they look grey. So, what is the actual real life color?
Fair question. They are a lighter grey. I'm not sure why they labeled it bronze, but it is the light grey you can see it on their site https://www.scarpa.com/wrangell-gtx
