L.L.Bean Gore-Tex Cresta Hikers, Leather
A glaring design flaw ruins these otherwise well-made, comfortable boots: the seam for the Gore-tex liner runs up the middle of the heel cup and no amount of breaking-in will get it to flatten out. Ugly, deep blisters resulted from wearing these boots on a five-day hike and 14'er summit in Colorado. I have tried for over two years to make these boots work and finally gave up. Surprised no other reviewer has had this problem.
