I used them in the Canadian Rockies while working on heli-portable seismic operations and they took a lot of abuse. I did a really good goop job to all the seams and rand the same day I bought them and put the snow seal to them. Cleaned and re-snow sealed them every day I had a chance to. I had to get the rand repaired in a few spots, just lately (December 2018). They are only used for light hiking these days, but have been very good to me. Full review
I sadly had to pitch my 18-year-old Moraines the other day. I resoled them twice. They took me to the Alps, Dolomites, Canadian Rockies, the Needles, the Tetons, Himalayas, Apalachians, the West Coast Trail, the list goes on.. Countless climbing adventures. The rubber between the sole and the boot just disintegrated. Best hiking boots I have owned, they owed me nothing. To the person who bought them in 2011, they were a 14 year old boot if the were branded One Sport. Full review
I used them only a few times for backpacking and they seemed to be okay. Didn't hike for a while and then used them for a day trip on non-rough terrain and the upper separated from the bottoms! One boot went first and then on the same trip the 2nd one went. Had to use electrical tape to get through the day. Apparently the glue does not hold the boots together. Would never buy this brand again. These were not cheap boots either. Full review
First of all, these are the older One Sport boots, which I LOVED DEARLY, until the last hike when the sole (last and all) decided to separate from the upper! These boots have been my best friend on countless trails for years with ZERO blisters. 25 miles of High Sierras right out of the box. Now I'm heart broken. My best friend may have to retire if I can't find someone to rebuild the bottoms. I think the ozone ate away the heel cups as the sole is still attached to it. Most everything I've read… Full review
While I have seen many complaints here about these boots, I personally have found none better. I am a professional survey archaeologist and walk from dusk until dawn during usually eight months out of the year. I personally cover a 100-acre plot of land and walk a 30-meter transect, and that is for 10 days in a row. I then wear them as my only pair of non-dress shoes during days off, and during the non-field saeson. I still have the original pair that I bought new in 1992 (that is 12 years old). Full review
One Sport was founded in 1982. The company's name was changed to Montrail in 1997.
