These boots were highly recommended by my local urban sophisticate outdoor store. The salesman said they were a fantastic boot for the money if you were only interested in non backpacking use. On this recommendation I bought them a year ago (they also look great!)
These boots were an incredible disappointment. I have logged about 50 Km in them so far (day trips) and they result in continual blisters and aching feet. They also leak through the toe area and seem to overheat my feet easily (not much breathability).
Would not recommend them even for light use. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!!!!
