Break-in Period: little or none

I have had these boots for a few years, and have put a lot of miles on them. I have hiked 14ers, I have hiked Half-Dome, and have hiked to the bottom of the Grand Canyon in them. I have hiked in them with a heavy pack. So far, I haven't had any blisters or other complaints whatsoever.
Unlike the other reviewer, I kept the original footbeds, and have found them to be satisfactory. The boots look great, are very comfortable, and have held up very well, in spite of tough trail conditions.
If you like traditional heavy leather hiking boots, like I do, you will like the Cabela's Perfekt. The Germans know how to make stuff.
