Rating: rated 4 of 5 stars

Use: dayhikes/ light backpacking (3 season)
Break-in Period: very short (first or second hike)
Weight: 2.5 pounds (approx.)
Price Paid: $29.99

Decent, inexpensive boots for day hikes and light-load backpacking. Leather/nylon mesh uppers. Good ankle support, good ventilation and tough lug soles. Easy break-in. ven better with good insoles. Would not advise using for off-trail/cross-country with big packs or mountaineering but should be o.k. for just about everything else. No waterproofing or insulation so they're not for winter use. Available at Big 5 and other mass-market sporting goods stores. Sure, they probably won't last as long as those $200-plus Gore-Tex and Vibram jobs but hey, at $30 even if they last only a year or two they're still worth getting.


Great boot--comfortable, lightweight, inexpensive.

Rating: rated 4 of 5 stars
Use: everyday outside work boot
Price Paid: $25

Great boot--comfortable, lightweight, inexpensive. Problems with laces--they keep snapping and they are a non-standard length and thickness so are hard to replace. I've bought three pairs of boots just to avoid the lace problem.
