Fits like a glove and doesn’t require braking in. Perfect for hiking and the occasional approach.
Great shoes! My second pair! Will order again..
Great all around shoe for approach and general outdoor use.
The best boots i have for tree climbing
Very pleased , good boot , good fit
I am still wearing them in doing farm work, before I head out doing some geologic mapping. The boots seem very comfortable out of the box and look like they have a tough internal fabric. Often its the internal fabric that breaks down around the heal so I often get a cobbler to make a prophylactic leather liner "repair". The big remaining question for me is if the sole glue manages very hot days on desert limestone.
Great shoes for hiking and trecking. Came just 5 days from the order and the shoes are exactly as show
