Beyond comfortable, soles do wear

I've used it several times
Size Bought:
5' 9"

Updating this quite a while later - the soles do wear out, and you can rip off some small chunks pretty early on if you're hiking rugged enough terrain. This has happened with other boots I've tried though, so I think it just comes with the territory. It didn't affect the comfort or performance really. *** My dudes, I agonized over which pair of boots I wanted to buy next. I had some mid-range Scarpas I spent about $190 on, and they were fine, but after 9-10 miles on a 14er, my feet ached something fierce, even with trekking poles (though those did help tremendously, especially the knees. Alas I digress). I was up to seventeen 14,000-ft peaks and am totally addicted, so I wanted to level up. An insane former roommate had climbed all 58 14ers in CO (I know there's only 53 officially, but you negative nancies can suck it haha). He strongly recommended these boots and was on his 2nd pair. The reviews about the vibram wearing out spooked me a bit, but I tried them on at an REI, and holy cow, they just felt like a dream right off the bat. I have narrow feet, and these things cup my heels beautifully; no slippage whatsoever. The toe box is plenty roomy as well - and if you have wide feet, you can just grab the GTX Lux version which is only $40 more I believe. I strongly considered the Lowa GTX Camino boot as well, but these Zamberlans just felt more comfortable. I've worn them on Missouri Mountain and Castle & Conundrum, and my feet have felt superb the whole time. Some very minor pinching here and there every now and then as I've warmed up, but no significant hot spots and no blisters whatsoever. They are truly the most comfortable boots I've ever owned. And yes, there are some scratches and knicks on the boot after 30 miles of hiking or so, but what do you expect after slogging through jagged rocks, talus, and scree? I do wonder if maybe some of the reviewers below just got a bad batch or something. Anyhoo, just get them some place with an awesome return policy and you'll be fine. And invest in Zamberlan's hydrobloc cream - it's very inexpensive and makes the boots look practically new after any hike, plus it repels water amazingly.

Best Hiking Boots

Size Bought:
5' 10"

I have never been more impressed with a hiking boot. I used to be an Asolo fan but wow Zamberlan has set the mark way high. These boots are amazing straight out of the box and right onto my feet. I feel as though they fit true to size (10) for my feet. No issues with any warm spots what so ever after many long walks with them on. I have always lived by the mantra spare no expense for your only get one pair in your lifetime so treat them well and with these boots I have done just that.
