I have worn these boots for four days every other week for a semester over glaciers and mountains. I then walked across most major cities in Europe for a month. Then I climbed for two years in Ecuador; again both on rock and glacier. The soles are stiff enough for strap-on crampons and rock scrambles. My boots are still like new.
Materials: waterproof leather (out/dry system) kidskin insides, vibram soles
Use: dayhikes, urban jungle daily stompers
Break-in Period: 2-3 days
Weight: app 4lbs
Price Paid: 87 bucks
Got'em at Sierra Trading Post. Previously worn but still like brand new. Took a couple of days to break in, have been my daily drivers for a little over a month now and are extremely comfortable. Lovin them and the price I paid. Don't have a clue what a new pair cost.
Materials: leather in and out
Use: backpacking, hiking
Break-in Period: not too long
Weight: 4lbs or so
Price Paid: $149
Pretty good boots, good support, aggressive soles, not too heavy, put in new insoles and they hold up comfortably for many miles.
