User Review: Cabela's Mountain Hiker
Price Paid: $140
I got mine to replace my Pivetta P-5s in 1985 or shortly thereafter, and still wear them all the time. They still don't leak and have the original soles, though the lugs are all wore off.
I've never had a blister once in them all this time, due to the snug fitting heel which is uncommon for me to find in my wide size. Too many shoes like Timberland have very wide heels that let the foot slide all around in the shoe, whereas these benefit from smarter boot builders.
I use only bees wax on the leather, and generously, all the time. I like Sno-Pruf which you can get anywhere. Don't use Nikwax, it will make your boots smell like kerosene and stretch out. These shoes lasted me close to 26 years with only beeswax for leather care, and spent years outdoors. I'm ready for a new pair now.
