rated 5 of 5 stars Hands down the best boots ever right out of the box! I've only found one U.S. distributor, Extreme Outfitters. These boots come in other styles than the ones pictured. I got my Garmont T8's (I think that's what they are) jungle boots in 2004. I've abused them. They have seen combat zones, hiking, and just everyday wear and they still live and they are my favorite motorcycle riding boots! The comfort level out of the box was amazing. They felt like I had them for years. I love them so much that when… Full review

Dragontail MNT GTX

rated 5 of 5 stars If you want a traditional approach shoe this probably isn't it. If you want a low cut boot with the stiffness and support of a heavy backpacking boot, you found it! Garmont calls this an approach shoe, and it's in the approach section of this website, but I wouldn't call it that. It's more like if you took a heavy, supportive backpacking boot, and just cut it down into a low cut hiking shoe. To me an approach shoe has sticky rubber with a sensitive sole, and the ability to really cinch it down hard… Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars Fantastic build quality. The best approach show I have worn to date. I had been suffering with Plantar Fasciitis for a few months. Once I worked out that I needed some Superfeet insoles the combination of these with the Dragontails has worked wonders. The shoes are fantastic in terms of support, grip, comfort and quality. I have tried many approach type shoes over the years but these are by far the best. Within the first few weeks of ownership I took them for a week in the peaks and they proved… Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars Comfortable, lightweight and very robust shoe for mountain tours with ice or snow crossings. Best shoe I ever had. Although very robust, it feels light and very comfortable. The quality and workmanship is absolutely Mercedes Benz. Full review

Synchro GTX

rated 4 of 5 stars Durable boot. Fits wider feet comfortably. I've had TWO pairs of these. Originally the first pair I shipped back because the toe was delaminating. They replaced it with the same pair, which I've worn for two or three hiking/light trail work field seasons. I've found with this boot (prior to the toecap on newer models), that I knew the weak point, so I shoe-gooed the toe area and do so throughout the field season. I'm not a backcountry crew member, so I didn't need the stiffest, most rugged boot. Full review
