A solid boot for the mountains, marshes, and mayhem.
- Indestructible outside
- Solid sole
- Little break in
- Decent ankle support
- Soles very slippery on ice
- A bit heavy
- Heal pocket formed very early
As a hiking guide in Banff National Park I needed a boot that was comfy, had good ankle support, and was virtually indestructible. If you waterproof these boots properly they will become just that.
I just wish I could say that about the insides, but then again they would not have been as comfy. So after 5 years I replaced these boots with the exact same boot. Don't ever stop making them.
Revised Review 9/17: It lost a full star because a heel pocket started to form after six days and I had to put Gorilla Tape on the inside to keep it from getting larger.
