After healing from a broken ankle (non-hiking related) I needed something sturdy to feel confortable on the trail. Your feet pop into this boot like a ski boot. I've never owned a boot so comfortable. I've never had so much as a blister, even while breaking them in. I hiked a couple of miles through a foot of snow in the Rockies and my feet stayed bone dry. I have no complaints.
