User Review: REI Men's Spirit III GTX
Materials: Leather, Gore-tex
Price Paid: $189
This boot fits me extremely well and is the most stable backpacking boot I have worn...However, I bought a pair and the next morning hit the trail with a very light load for a short 5 mile hike to start breaking them in. In that first five miles the vibram soles on both boots split and started to separate from the soles.
I took that pair back to REI and of course they graciously let me exchange them. So the next day I took my new brand new pair on a 7 mile hike, hoping against all hope that the first pair was a fluke...lo-and-behold, the same result. This pair is also going back to REI and I will be switching to another heavy backpacking boot...I just hope whatever other brand I end up getting fit as well as these did.
