I bought these boots on the recommendation of the "Whole Earth Catalog" in 1976 and spent three months traveling around western Europe. Plenty of city walking (must have put 50 miles on them in Rome alone-concrete sidewalks, etc.) and light hiking in Scotland, Zermatt (three 10,000 ft. hikes plus smaller hikes) Greece/Greek Islands, etc.

A great pair of boots. Very quick and easy break in, never any hot spots or blisters. Molded to my feet like gloves, good support, and great traction from the Vibran soles. I still have the original pair and have used them off and on for the past twenty years. Used them to run "Hash" races in Memphis, TN in the late '80s/early 90s. Bought a second pair in '81 (mail order-$115), but bought them too small and they never worked right, just gave them away last month--still in good shape after a fair amount of use. I have not heard about these boots in several years and assume they are not sold in U.S. anymore, and maybe not made.
