Love these boots!

Needed a new pair of boots for backpacking and discovered these. They're very comfortable and well-made. Not the lightest of boots, but the lighter ones I tried felt too much like tennis shoes. An on-line review noted that these feel lighter on your feet than they actually weigh, and I agree. I wore them to work for a few days to break them in, then did a 20-mile weekend backpacking trip and they were perfect. No blisters, no sore spots, and my feet stayed warm and dry despite tramping through 8" of snow. I have a narrow foot and these fit very well without being sloppy, but they have enough room in the toebox that my toes didn't feel cramped. That lacing hook at the ankle really helps make them feel solid on your foot without having to lace uncomfortably tightly. I usually wear an 8-1/2 to a 9 and the size 7 is perfect for me.
