Timberland Cadion Mid Gore-Tex XCR
I really wanted to like these boots. Just as described…
Price Paid: $140
I really wanted to like these boots. Just as described in Backpacker, these boots feel great right out of the box. Unfortunately, Timberland does not make wide widths and the toe box in this boot is simply too narrow for even slightly wider than normal feet. Everything else about them felt great, but after a few 2-3 mile break in walks I knew the width was going to be a problem.
I do think these would work fine for someone with narrow, low-volume feet.
I was somewhat displeased since I bought these because…
Materials: Synthetic fabric, Leather, Gore-Tex, Vibram soles
Break-in Period: A few 4 mile dayhikes
Weight: 1lb 9oz
Price Paid: $140
I was somewhat displeased since I bought these because I wanted an all synthetic boot. Backpacker magazine rated them as the "best fit for women" and listed them as being made of Synthetic Fabric. Nowhere does anyone (not even Timberland on their website) note that the top light gray around your ankles is actually leather...
That being said, these shoes do fit better than anything I have ever owned. These really are perfect for someone with narrow/ low volume feet.
