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.
- Bullet proof
- A little heavy

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 says the newer ones aren't as good. Better to stick with a sewn welt for serious hikes or suffer the same fate--at least I was only miles from my truck--or carry shoe goo! End of the love affair!
