User Review: Montrail Men's Torre GTX
Price Paid: $70
I've owned a size 11.5 pair of these boots for 18 months now. With over 500 miles on the ridges and fishing in the valleys of the Appalachian Mountains, they have proved to be a tough and inexpensive boot.
I like these boots. I recommend immediately putting a pair of (green) Superfeet in these if you are doing any backpacking.
WaterTIGHT. I've dunked these boots in water multiple times, at times for longer than 30 mins, and I have 100% confidence that they are waterproof. I intend to continue to use them as my fishing boots.
They have, on one instance, given me blisters. But that was likely not the boot as much as the choice of sock I was using.
I have encountered one serious issue with these boots. If the (green) Superfeet are not used, expect these boots to hurt your ankles after ~150 miles. I will not describe the pain these boots caused me with the original inserts.
The leather upper does seem to be separating from the Vibram outer sole but has yet to compromise the water-tightness.
