I bought these at REI prior to my first lengthy backpacking trip (14 days in the Colorado Rockies). I "broke them in" by wearing them when I walked my dogs for a few weeks beforehand, but that was it. They ended up working out amazingly well on the trip and I never had a single blister over two weeks while my friends (including someone wearing La Sportiva Makalus) were forced to use mole skin. I was very impressed.

I have used them a few times since (once for a week in Canyonlands, Utah, and for a week on Annapurna, Nepal) and they have still never let me down. Overall, these have proved to be tried and true favorites. I highly recommend them.

I agree with other reviewers that it takes a long time to break in these boots. During the break in, I laced these boots while wearing strips of mole skin on my heels to prevent blisters. After a few years, and Superfeet I no longer wear moleskin.

These are tough, durable boots, and the long break in can be expected. I have used a powerwasher for years to clean these boots. With a heavy pack, these boots provide good support.
