L.L.Bean Gore-Tex Cresta Hikers, Leather


Rating: rated 4 of 5 stars
Price Paid: $169

Okay, I do love these boots. Italian craftsmanship and durability, and Bean customer service. I hike arduously in the Sierra Nevada. I'm giving the Crestas four stars just to take a jab at LL Bean: Why did you guys stop making the Speed Guide Hikers? Gore-tex, Kevlar, leather, and Vibram, these flat out were the best backpack boots on the planet. Settling for the Crestas is a good thing, but the Speed Guides were in a category of their own.
