User Review: REI Men's Spirit III GTX
Materials: leather, Gore-tex
Use: long dayhikes, on- and off-trail
Break-in Period: ~ 50 miles
Price Paid: $189
I needed a sturdy hiking boot for mostly dayhikes on- and off-trail in the Sierra Nevada and this sturdy looking boot fit me quite well. It took some time for the boots to break in but then they were comfortable and provided solid support and very good traction on difficult terrain (scree, talus, class 3/4 rock). Unfortunately, after only about 150 miles of hiking the sole separated from the rest of the boot and I was glad that I could make it back to the trailhead. I was expecting a boot this expensive to be of higher quality. Fortunately, REI allowed me to return it.
