User Review: Garmont Men's Syncro GTX
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $209
Great durable boot.
- Hot and steamy if your feet sweat a lot or if in a hot environment
First off, I spent the last two years living in this boot in the Middle East and Central Asia walking an average of 6-10 miles per day. I would have rather had a pair of non-Gortex all leather boots for the hot environment, but those are extremely rare to find anymore.
Like one of the previous reviewers, I have a very difficult time finding boots to fit (wide toes and narrow heel). These boots fit perfectly right out of the box, so I got them even though I had never heard of the brand and despite them having a Gortex liner. Being in a hot environment Gortex is not really preferred but I needed a durable, heavy duty boot that could stand up to the rigors of a lot of mileage and packs up to 50 lbs.
These boots did not disappoint. I wore them daily for almost 3 years walking on sand and sharp rocks. They held up great and provided good support.
My only complaint is that my feet sometimes got a little hot and steamy, but that is to be expected with 130 deg temperatures.
After returning from my trip, I am buying my second pair. Sadly I have learned that this exact boot is no longer being made, so they are getting difficult to find. Buy a pair while you can.
