Price Paid: $80
I had read that you can take some soft-sided boots out of the box and wear them hiking the next day...but could not believe it until now. After looking for months on end, trying on tons of boots, I found the Endeavor Mid II at my local sporting goods store by chance. The minute I put it on, my body relaxed and my feet were in heaven, I finally found my most comfortable boots yet.
Lightweight, easy to lace, correct last, no toe rubbing, comfy, comfy, comfy...the Endeavor fulfilled my wishes. Gone were the blisters. I am currently looking for my second pair as a back-up.
So hooray for Endeavor Mid II. If I could give it five stars I would.
