Where do I start with these boots. Nothing but blood, sweat and tears. I took then on several medium hikes with different sock combinations but nothing seemed to work. The initial fit in the store seemed outstanding. And still to wear them around town they are comfortable. But I put a pack on and start a serious up hill climb and in about 2 miles I can feel the blisters starting. When I thought they might be broke in I hiked the Grand Canyon with them and came out with a bloody mess of a foot. Even after that, they still are no more broke in then the day I bought them.
I spit on this boot.
