Too funny. People pay $40 for hiking boots and then write a bad review because it did not perform like $400 boots. The boot is worth every dollar I spent on it.
I'm not a big time hiker, went out West for the first time ever hiking for 10 days around Southern Utah and Northern AZ. They were just fine. I'll probably not hike again for a few years, so for the way I use them they are just fine.
