D.M.C. V

rated 5 of 5 stars Perfection! I purchased my Pivettas from a small backpacking shop on Devon Ave. in Chicago. The price was out of proportion to my personal finances at the time, but they are the best investment I have ever made. They have taken me to the Smokies, Banff, BC, Glacier, Yellowstone and less glamorous trails in Wisconsin. They may still make the Appalachian Trail trip, knees willing. These boots are 39 years old and still fit my feet like gloves...never a blister after breaking them in. I hope someone… Full review

D.M.C. V

rated 5 of 5 stars I was lucky to be able to buy a pair of Pivetta 5s in 1978 at Paragon Sports in New York, on the basis of a review I'd read in Backpacker (now available online; search "Backpacker 1973 Pivetta Limmer"). They have fit my narrow size 8-1/2 feet perfectly, and my only regret is that I didn't get a second pair, now that they've been out of production for a long time. The intervening years, many comfortable hiking miles, and my own neglect have all proved the superiority of their design, workmanship,… Full review

Eiger Leather Hikers

rated 5 of 5 stars I purchased my PIVETTA EIGER boots in the early 1970s by mail order from the SKI HUT in Berkley, Cal. I learned of these boots from the book "The Complete Walker" by Colin Fletcher. I still have and wear these boots over 35 years later. They have been re-soled twice. I never wear them on cement or asphalt, trail only. These boots are the best in the world! I have AA narrow feet, and these offer total ankle support on rough mountain trails. Thru the years I also have owned Danners, Lowa, Garmont,… Full review

Muir Trail

rated 5 of 5 stars The finest boots I have ever owned. They are on their 6 or 7 set of soles. Wes, if you have two pair of Muir Trails that must be why our inventory was short back when we were in college. You did use them a lot on rescue, but other than that I think they were for "beer runs". Seriously you will never find a better boot. I have used on approach to Mt Shasta, North Pal, Thunderbolt, Darwin, etc. Does anyone know the best place to have them resoled with yellow Vibrams? I am looking for an artisan that… Full review
