User Review: Montrail Men's Blue Ridge GTX
Use: Dayhikes and off-trail
Price Paid: $150
Would have been the PERFECT pair of boots if it weren't for one thing... a BADLY misplaced seam in the Gore-tex liner that gave me horrible blisters on the back of my heel EVERY time that I would hike in them. I endured such punishment for several trips, hoping that this quality would eventually "break in", but it never did.
If they made a leather lined/non Gore-tex model (provided that it did not have this badly placed seam) I would definitely buy them again.
Minus the above incompatibility, they truly did feel "broken in" out of the box, and had EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT; craftsmanship, fit, gusseting, flex, and eyelet hardwear.
It's a shame that my feet don't get along with these.
