After 1000 miles of North Country Trail hiking in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania, two resoles, countless laces, I finally blew a hole in the side during a very wet trip in Pennsylvania.
These boots dry out remarkably fast if you just set them in the sun.
Extremely comfortable and durable, I am buying another pair. This time, I am going with wide.
Used snowseal constantly. I also started in the later life of the boots putting silicone over the threads/sole.
The Cambrielle lining wears away quickly, but isnt that why we have duct tape?
