I sadly had to pitch my 18-year-old Moraines the other day. I resoled them twice. They took me to the Alps, Dolomites, Canadian Rockies, the Needles, the Tetons, Himalayas, Apalachians, the West Coast Trail, the list goes on.. Countless climbing adventures. The rubber between the sole and the boot just disintegrated. Best hiking boots I have owned, they owed me nothing. To the person who bought them in 2011, they were a 14 year old boot if the were branded One Sport. Full review
I used them only a few times for backpacking and they seemed to be okay. Didn't hike for a while and then used them for a day trip on non-rough terrain and the upper separated from the bottoms! One boot went first and then on the same trip the 2nd one went. Had to use electrical tape to get through the day. Apparently the glue does not hold the boots together. Would never buy this brand again. These were not cheap boots either. Full review
First of all, these are the older one sport boots, which I LOVED DEARLY, untill the last hike when the sole (last and all) decided to seperate from the upper! These boots have been my best friend on countless trails for years with ZERO blisters. 25 miles of high sierras right out of the box. Now I'm heart broken. My best friend may have to retire if I can't find someone to rebuild the bottoms. I think the ozone ate away the heel cups as the sole is still attached to it. Most everything I've read… Full review
While I have seen many complaints here about these boots, I personally have found none better. I am a professional survey archaeologist and walk from dusk until dawn during usually eight months out of the year. I personally cover a 100-acre plot of land and walk a 30-meter transect, and that is for 10 days in a row. I then wear them as my only pair of non-dress shoes during days off, and during the non-field saeson. I still have the original pair that I bought new in 1992 (that is 12 years old). Full review
Many people seem to love these boots, and with good reason. Yes, for me, there was no break-in period. Sure, the leather goes soft very fast, and they are darn heavy, but I kept them in good condition and they lasted long enough to be worthwhile. If you have the option (I bought them years ago, and I don't know if it still is) do NOT get nubuck. Someone really made a mistake when they came up with the idea that nubuck is a good finish in hiking boots. Get the things near water, not even in it, but… Full review
One Sport was founded in 1982. The company's name was changed to Montrail in 1997.
