great boots so far! haven't really put them to the test though. purchased in the winter, so i've only used them snowshoeing on milder days and on a few day hikes this spring.
the fit is what catches my attention the most, the boots hug my feet very comfortably, and they react with my movements smoothly; natural walking form. i'm comparing them to my previous trail hikers, danner radical 452 gtx, which i've had for about 5-years and which have a more blunt sole and don't roll as naturally.
still need to take them out on some multi-day trips and see how they hold up over time. otherwise, very happy with the sitka.
