Forge GTX

rated 2 of 5 stars On my pair of boots the rand came unstuck along a half-inch section of the toe box after just one week (20 miles of use)!!!! Tecnica replaced them, but this does not bode well for build quality or longevity. Other big problem is the heel box. There is a heavily stitched seam running up the heel, meaning that any space/slack results in rubbing, especially on steep uphill going. Result: blisters.

I wore them on the Sunfish Pond overnight on the Appalachian Trail and a few times a year for day hikes and to go camping. They were kept clean, never submerged in water barely saw rain and the other day I go to wear them to Great Adventure for Freight-Fest… Full review
