Comfortable, super-squeaky boot.

Pros

  • Felt good from day one
  • Supportive boot

Cons

  • SQUEAK!

Comfortable boot, little break-in period required. I tend to roll my ankles easily and so was attracted to the extra ankle support provided by the plastic ankle "cuffs."

However, contrary to what another reviewer claimed, these do squeak. They squeak with every single step and every single movement. I thought the squeak would go away over time, but after wearing these for over a hundred miles, it's still there.

The boots are comfortable enough that I deal with the squeak, however, I know it has been loud enough to annoy some hiking partners.
