these are some heavy weight boots. the look makes you think youre wearing bulletproof shoes. but once you hit some hard terrain, all the looks paid its price.
after 5 days in the baja desert and mountains the boots started falling apart. the second day the sole of the left boot peeled off and falleed somewhere in the desert. the only thing i liked is that the internal frame provides support and helped me to walk to my next rendezvou point to change my shoes. and i did what i should have done in the firs place: go back to my old (but trusted) Raichle, they know how to make boots that last. these Raichle (my 3rd pair) have lasted 5 years and a lot of abuse, from 20 day in hard rock trips, construction sites, misuse (and abuse) with chemicals and acid, and all that has gone is the original color. even the sole is in good condition.
