Superb boots, lasted 1000+ miles of hiking
These boots are excellent for hikers who want ankle support without sacrificing flexibility and weight. They are lightweight for their sturdiness and they fit my narrow feet more comfortably than my previous shoes which were Meindls. The manufacturing is solid, especially the very strong eyelets which do not budge. With the right inserts, I can walk for up to 14 hours on the trail, carrying gear, and not have blisters or foot/ankle pain at the end of the day. I recommend reinforcing the seal where the rubber meets the suede, to extend the life of these shoes. Excellent customer service.
