Best I've ever had, and since they don't make them anymore I guess the best I will ever have... I have had mine for 20+ years and they fit like a glove.
I thought I hit gold one day when I ran accross an old pair I found in a box after my father passed away. They are in brand new shape, never ever waterproofed and leather is still a light tan. Vibram screwed soles and all. I would guess 1980 era +-, nice boots just too small for me, they are men's size 10.
Thought I'd post this on this site to make everyone envy!!! Ha!
Truthfully though, they need a good home... A premimum score, especially since they are no longer made.
Break-in Period: month
Weight: 5.+ lbs
Price Paid: $139
I bought these boots in 1974 for the AT and I am still backpacking in them. They are a great boot. In a moment of weakness, I went to REI and tried on a pair of lighter weight boots, but I couldn't bring myself to buy them. I'll wear my Pivettas to the grave!
