Superb Norwegian welted leather boot. Just crazy attention to detail and quality. Yes, your first car cost less, but these are the Ferrari of hiking boots.


  • Superb quality and detail everywhere
  • Can actually be resoled reliably
  • Solid and comfortable
  • Very good grip under all conditions


  • Not a fast and very lightweight boot
  • Pricey

Love these. I wear them even when a lighter boot would be more than adequate.  Just very comfortable, great grip and trail feel for a stiffer heavier boot.

I have read complaints about the toe rand coming loose, but mine have not even after two years of hard use.

The fit is superb. I have two very different feet and have no trouble accommodating both by simply lacing differently.

They did require a few days of extended use to really break in, but I had no blistering or other evils during that period.

This is a very supportive boot, so if you want shoes or a trail runner experience, this is not your boot. On the other hand I have skied in these using a universal binding on backcountry skis—so they are flexible enough for scramble hikes and stiff enough for some pretty demanding uses.

I am not sure that the Gore-Tex was really needed. It turns out that there is also a non-Gore-Tex version of this boot as well.

Anyway, if you want to splurge on an absurdly well made and very functional boot, this will do it.
