They're great! It took no time to break them in and they're incredibly comfortable. A good solid boot with plenty of room for the toes in the toe box. My only complaint is that I wish there was a little more ankle support. This would also be a great boot for those of you who have a slightly wider foot than most (like me). I usually have the hardest time finding a shoe or boot that can accomadate my aircraft carrier sized feet but the Spirit GTX really does the job.

Thsi is a Gore-Tex lined boot that is amazingly comfortable right out of the box. Can be warm in dry, hot hiking due to the Gore-Tex. Feet stayed completely dry even when crossing shallow streams while hiking.
