My first experience with these boots. I weigh about 160Lbs and had NEVER hiked, selected a loop back trail 6mi long, got lost, rose over 3,000 feet in elevation in 4 hours, ended up walking 9 miles that day and had never (before this time) even walked to the mail box in these new boots. At the end of this long day (12:30pm - 7:30pm) I had NOT a single blister, raw place, or any other boot related problem... although my ankles were quite tired from the day's effort. In my opinion, these are the best boots I've come across, and from the reaction of others (when I relate this occurence to them) it must be an awfully rare event for a boot to function so well right out of the box.
