I have purchased 4 or 5 pairs of these boots over the last decade for my sons who are heavily into Boy Scout camping and hiking. As a scouter and father, these are a great value in a light hiking boot. The boys find them extremely comfortable and they love having dry feet on the dewy mornings or in the rain thanks to the Gor-Tex. Way better than some "tennies" that can cost as much.

I have found no problems with fit or blisters on hikes - even a 100 mile Philmont trek. Of course, the boots were dead after that, but for the price well worth another pair. These have great quality and performance for kids who tend to outgrow them before they're worn out- durable enough to hand them down, and not so expensive so as to break the bank. In my mind, this should be the official BSA boot.
