Here's what other sites are saying:
Zamberlan's Men's 540 Rise GT Hiking Boots are ideal lightweight and comfortable hiking boots for the moderate backpacker.
- Altrec Outdoors refers to the men's version
With an emphasis on reduced weight and breathability, the Zamberlan Rise GT hiking boots supply waterproof protection, comfort and fine Italian construction. Durable, lightweight Hydrobloc(R) nubuck leather uppers offer flexibility and support; perforated Cordura(R) nylon panels enhance breathability. Seam-sealed Gore-Tex(R) liners protect feet from wet weather and allow excess moisture vapor to escape, keeping feet dry and comfortable. Padded and gusseted tongues relieve lace pressure across insteps and keep out trail debris; heel loops aid entry. Polypropylene midsoles provide all-day cushioning. Thermoplastic urethane stabilizers enhance rigidity and stability on uneven terrain. Long-lasting Vibram(R) rubber outsoles deliver reliable traction on rough ground.
