Alpine Design Hiking Boot

Rating: rated 3.5 of 5 stars
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $40

Summary

Not bad. I do have a suggestion below if the manufacturer is reading this.

Pros

  • Bobbed heal makes it easier to walk. Rolling effect. My wide foot fits pretty good in the boot after break in period

Cons

  • Hard to tighten shoe laces without tearing up the laces.

Not bad.  I do have suggestion if manufacturer is reading this.  

Get rid of the first four pairs of shoe lace eyes. When I try to tighten the shoe lace they cut into the outer layer of lace. I have separated the outer wrap from the nylyon core.  I suspect the core will go out in a week. I have to tighten them to keep foot from flopping around.  Eyes should be more rounded at the corners or resemble the "D" ring eye (#5).
