Use: rough trail w/ heavy pack; all around

After doing my reading and listening to many hiking boot sales people, I committed myself to owning the SL M3. From top to bottom the boot shines with the finest craftsmanship. My favorite aspect of the boot is the lacing system which allows for these heavy-duty hiking boots to wrap comfortably around my feet. The lace hooks are designed not to snag on rocks or brush, a nice feature among the newer boots. I have only been able to able to use these boot in the few wilderness areas along the central Californian coast so far, but have found that the SL M3 handles wet, rainforest conditions as well as arid, rocky conditions equally well.
My only concern with the boot is how I'm going to pay for them when my credit card bill comes in. Oh well.
