Good old-fashioned boot

Reviewed by NH when I can from NY NY on Sunday, November 27, 2011
Overall I like this boot, although I've only done a few miles in it after a couple of days around-the-house breaking in.

Took it for a couple of hours of wet (boggy) hiking, with just a quick Kiwi spray first; boot did let moisture get through around the lower edges after a while (there is still snow, and lots of melt, on the ground).

I like the boot overall but think it's not meant for heavy packing / regular wet-terrain hiking. Seems like a strong candidate for a hiking / day packing / EMT shift boot (looks good with a uniform too). We will see if the full break-in goes as expected ;-)
