User Review: La Sportiva Vermont
Use: rugged trail with heavy packs; trekking
Break-in Period: 2 weeks
Price Paid: $165
These boots take a while to break in, but they are great when you finish. The full-lleather upper is very durable, and I have have found it completely waterproof even though there is no membrane. It is a little heavy, but all of it seems to be in support. This boot holds you up great and the traction is very good. The leather sticks to the sole very well even after getting wet many times, and the cushioning is good. I can't see any reason not to get this boot if the price works for you.
