If it fits and your looking for a heavy duty backpaking/mountaineering boot this is the boot for you. I strongly suggest that you make sure you get a good fit before you purchase this (or any) boot because this is a serious boot that will not give much to a bad fit. Be patient, these babys took a long (but not painful) time to tame. These are the newest version of the boot which I believe are superior to the originals.
