Zamberlan Ladak GT

Break-in Period: bought used

An incredible boot. By far the most comfortable weatherproof boot I have owned. I bought mine used off Ebay about three years ago and have logged about 200 miles since. They are just now losing their tread so it's time to get another pair.
Great construction and rock solid on the trail in all conditions. The reinforced rubber toe rand is a nice feature as it keeps the leather protected from rock cuts and abrasions. The lace locking hooks about mid way up allow for separate adjustment of toe box and ankle support. Padded gusseted tongue and padded collar add to the comfortable fit
Price Paid: ZERO
I just found a pair of these boots in the recycling area of my townhouse complex. They had a piece of painters tape across the toe that read, "Bought in 2003 - only used once." They appeared to be in excellent condition and looked like my size - 10. So I slipped them on (just as a neighbour entered the recycling area - awkward) and wow, I felt like Cinderalla! And if that's not enough, the kind person slipped a little can of weather spray in one of the boots. What a perfect gift, especially since there's a lot of snow on the ground right now. Gotta love the 3 R's of high-density living. I really look forward to putting my 'new' boots to the test. And I'm happy to discover that they sound like a great quality boot.
Use: Casual, Heavy Pack, wherever
Break-in Period: couple of days
Price Paid: $300 CDN
Unreal. No problems whatsoever. Again, gone everywhere done everything. I wish they continued the model, after 6 years the tread is going. I couldn't even tell you how many miles in these boots after 6 years.
Use: trekking, rough trail with heavy pack, short hikes, work, play, etc...
Break-in Period: zip
Weight: must be just under half a kilo
Price Paid: around $300 several years ago
Best boots I have ever owned - they've gone everywhere and done everything without a single moment of "break-in" pain, "user" pain or any other kind of discomfort... I am searching for another pair - after all this time they've blown up on me...
Materials: leather / gore-tex
Use: from church to mountains
Break-in Period: in store
Weight: very light
Price Paid: USD 210 from REI
If you can find a better boot at any price, then buy them!!
