User Review: Van Gorkom Men's Custom Hiking Boots
Use: rough trail w/heavy pack
Break-in Period: zero
Weight: not sure
Price Paid: $675
I have never felt so compelled to endorse a product as Van Gorkom boots. Last March I decided to book a sheep hunt in the Mackenzie Mountains and started the search for a new pair of appropriate boots. Research led me to Charlie Van Gorkom. After a couple of pleasant phone conversations it was an easy decision based on his confidence and commitment to properly fit my flat narrow feet.
I have tried about every boot under the sun including another pair of customs. Charlie was substantially backlogged but made an incredible effort to deliver my boots just before my hunt. I actually received them the day of the hunt, allowing zero break-in time. I took them along anyway with my other well broken-in customs.
When arriving in base camp I decided to try the new Van Gorkoms to see how long my feet could stand them. All kidding aside, I never took them off for six days, except when getting in my sleeping bag. They fit like gloves from day one. Not one problem. The entire hunt I never put on my old customs. I am 100% satisfied and highly recommend these boots.
