Solid construction boots that keep my feet protected…
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $70
Solid construction boots that keep my feet protected as I backpack and provide decent ankle support. They have solid traction and keep your feet warm and dry.
- Vibram soles
- Recycled materials
- Stiff at first — caused blisters
I've had these boots for about a year and they look almost as good as when I bought them.
Fit: a bit snug, so you might want to go up a size.
Comfort: pretty good, but after a long day of hiking, I am ready to take them off. They have caused me a couple of blisters when I didn't wear thick socks.
Support: No complaints here. They aren't super high, so the support isn't off the charts, but they will keep you from turning an ankle here or there.
Water Resistance: Billed as waterproof and I've never had any issues with them absorbing water. Water beads on them, but this goes away over time and a waterproofing material will need to be added.
Traction: Vibram soles — need I say more?
Construction: Very solidly built for the price I paid. I am impressed.
Conditions: I've owned them for about a year and have taken them on several day hikes and a few overnight trips as well.
