Overall these boots are great. I just got back from Philmont, New Mexico, and we were out in the backcountry for 12 days doing up to 12 miles a day. Pretty much switchbacks like the whole way, it was tough. I was carying an average of about 50lbs. and at the end of the day my feet hurt because the insoles sucked, but that can be changed. Only one blister on the back.
I gave these boots some breaking in before I went. DON'T LISTEN TO THEM WHEN THEY SAY THAY ARE PRETTY MUCH BROKEN IN! Gore works great and I highly recommend this boot.
Get new backpacking insoles.
boots are great, they just role when u hike
fit great on my foot
break them in and maybe run them through the wash to loosen them up if u r desperate
bad for pack over 30 to 35lbs
great boot overall, go try them on.
