Use: mainly short hikes on rough trails
Break-in Period: none, perfect from new.
Fantastic boot! I've had mine for around 20 years and they really are almost as good as new. I wear them every day to walk the dog over some very rough paths here in Southern Spain, and apart from some sole wear, they are still in superb condition.
I just treat them with Nikwax every few weeks (it's very dry here) and I can wade through shallow streams and my feet stay bone dry. I can't recommend them highly enough.
Break-in Period: None- perfect from day one
Weight: I'm 180- 215lbs, my boats 1.9 (sweaty) lbs
I've had my Scarpa Trionic "Attak" boot for over 22 years. It's my first REAL boot and wouldn't dare replace them. They're aged to perfection and I expect them to never leak (once a year I "snowproof" with Beeswax). I've abused them hiking, orienteerring, backpacking, and some construction sites. The tread isn't what it used to be, but unless I can get them replaced them by Scarpa, I'll just have to live with them the way they are. They'll probably outlast me.
Use: A.T. Thru-hike
Break-in Period: None
Price Paid: around $100 in 1989
Great boot. We both put on new pairs before hiking up and down Mt. Moosilauke. Never got a blister! Then again, we had feet that had already hiked some 1,500 miles. Anyone know where I can get another pair? (for the day when these boot eventually(?) wear out).

Materials: Full Grain Leather
Break-in Period: Slim to none
I've had my Trionic boots since around 1987 or 1988. I still wear them today and I love every minuet of it. These boots are at home on any rocky, steep trail as well as tame Wal-Mart floors. I just need to start thinking about getting them re-soled.
Use: dayhikes & backpacking
Price Paid: Can't remember
Cannot praise these boots too highly. I've had them since 1987 and have gone many, many miles in them without a single blister, etc. And they look like new(ish).
