A Big Stiffy
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- 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.
