Really nice pair of Garmont's Zenith Mid GTX (GoreTex) hiking boots. Bought these for my teen son -- he loved them, but quickly outgrew them. Winner of the 2011 Outside Gear of the Year Award.
Probably about 50 miles and maybe 8 days on the boots. Worked great for winter snow hike to Alta Peak and summer backpack to top of Mt. Langley.
Slight scuffs on upper and on Vibram sole, but these boots still have 90%+ of their life left.
Post to ebay, but shoot me a note if you want them and I will end auction early (assuming it's before I get bids) -- http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=261164431969

From some reviews I've seen, these fit well for a wide foot (which seems accurate for my son as well), but otherwise run true to size.
