Summary

Comfortable and durable boot with average grip.

Pros

  • Durable
  • Waterproof
  • Comfortable

Cons

  • Heavy
  • Can get rather hot
  • Lacking in traction

I used these boots on and off for about five years for hiking in different environments ranging from well maintained trails to harsh desert bushwacking. The uppers are pretty durable and waterproof. The outsole tends to accumulate a lot of mud though, and even when dry, I struggled getting grip in loose dirt. Slick rock was also a problem, especially when wet.

Waterproofing is great, never had any water come in until the midsole started delaminating after five years of rough use. The upper is also very supportive and I've always loved this style of boot lacing with the quick lacing hooks.

The inside is very well padded and comfortable. This also means they can get pretty hot in warm climates, but this is something I learned to live with before I started using trail running shoes for hiking. 

These would be a great work boot, but I wouldn't get another pair for hiking. Still, they took me to a lot of places and kept on trucking, so I'm pretty pleased and I feel I got my money's worth out of these. As a rugged option these are great if you're on a tight budget, but I wouldn't use them on highly technical terrain.

This was my first pair of hiking boots, bought in a frenetic attempt to secure last minute supplies before a campout. The boots work alright, but the heel dips in such a way that it rubs uncomfortably on my Achilles' tendon.
