I've owned many boots in my short life and thought I had an easy foot to fit, till I bought some Nike's. Thing is I had always had Vasques, but after about 300 - 400 miles the ankle support would go. Thought I would try something else. Bought top of the line Nike's. Do Not buy Nike hiking boots (BAD,BAD).

Anyway I wanted a more supportive boot. Thought I would try the Raichles out. After a one week break in period and extensive hiking, snow, cow dung, etc. man I'm in love (with the boot). I can't believe I lived w/ out them. note they do have a large toe box some like, some don't like...
