User Review: Garmont Men's Dakota
Materials: heavy leather
Use: rough trail w/heavy pack
Break-in Period: very short
Price Paid: $319 Cdn
I agree with the other reviewer that these boots had a very quick break-in time. My pair of boots however have treated me very well with the advice to replace insoles with some better ones. I used these boots on a 22km hike on rough terrain carrying a 45lb pack and I had no complaints. I have had the boots for over a year now and I still have not noticed any significant wear despite the amount of mileage that I have in them. One of the nice things about these boots is that they are crampon compatible, which makes them more versatile than other brands. Overall, I would buy these boots again but it is wise to replace the insoles to some with more support.
