Break-in Period: none required

I recently purchased a pair of Scarpa Kailash GTX boots, and went on my first backpack trip with them September 20, 2008. It was a one night 10 mile trip, so not a long one. However, for not having a chance to break them in the comfort was amazing! They also supported my feet well, which considering my weak ankles is important.
I also have problems with plantar faciaitis, and my orthotics combined with the Vibram sole of this boot produced comfort and pain free walking which I did not get with my previous boot. I have not had these boots long, but I now can look forward to long trips and happy feet at the end of the day!
