User Review: Van Gorkom Men's Custom Hiking Boots
Use: extensive backcountry, mountain climbing
Break-in Period: none
Weight: very light in light of their sturdiness
Price Paid: do not remember
I bought a pair of 18 cm boots and a pair of 15 cm boots some 16 years ago directly in Smithers from Charles van Gorkom. I have "problem-feet" and nevertheless spend most of my free time outdoors, on top of mountains, in the Arctic.
Van Gorkom boots are the most comfortable footwear I have ever owned. You put them on and do not wish to take them off. They come with my highest recommendation. All of my friends that followed my recommendation have the same experience.
