I really like these boots. Wore them right out of the box on a 17 mile day hike in the Blue Ridge Mountains in rain and dense fog; they worked flawlessly, including crossing streams and wet rocks; feet stayed dry with no blisters or hot spots; this was helped by wearing Thorlos winter backpacking sock; this was my second pair of these boots; had about 500 miles on them and the vibram sole broke all the across the ball of my foot on the left shoe; Great Outdoor Provision Company replaced them without question.
