    I bought this boot to perform tree work in, mainly standing in hooks when doing removals. I liked the boot but had to return them as the size, a 46 was too small. Otherwise they would be covered in saw dust by now.

    I bought this boot for hunting. You recommended 1/2 size larger so I ordered 10&1/2 instead of 10. Boot is well built and comfortable but still a little short. I've only worn them a half dozen times alternating with another pair of boots and am hoping they will stretch slightly. If they do I would buy again.

    These boots are extremely comfortable and will break in quickly. Great support and seem like they will last...

    These boots are the first time I have bought a Garmont. I've only worn them once, but I'm not dissappointed yet. The height is taller then my last pair, so that will take some getting used to. The lacing is a bit different too. They feel very solid, and and just the right weight. I don't believe they are crampon compatible, but they have a lot of traction on the sole already. The nubuck is very smooth, and I wonder how long they will stay looking new.

    Soft out-of-the-box requiring no break-in period. Great ankle support with padded collars. Very comfortable, but definitely order a size bigger. I wear a 10 .5 and had to order and 11.5. Otherwise no worries.

    I found these boots to be very comfortable. No Toe squeeze or blisters when heading down hill.
    Also kept my feet dry hiking thru creeks, Bog, Ice , Snow, Scree, boulder hopping . Better than my Boreal Bulnes boots.

    A number of years ago I had a Garment boot, and loved it. Unfortunately it was discontinued. I then switched to an Asolo backpacking boot which I loved too, but now is no longer available again (went through 3 pairs of the Asolo - I hike every week). So I found this Garmont. Very similar to the original Garment I had.

    I like the robust quality. I used to mountain climb (now 70 so only hike) and prefer a boot built to with stand ruff terrain. Just took then on a hike of 10+ miles and 3,500' w/ some very steep uneven trails and small stream crossings. They did quite well.

    I did order a half size larger. Seems fine on fit. The lace system is different, but gives some unique abilities on how to adjust the pressure over the lower foot vs upper/ankles. I just found out I need to put less pressure on the top of my foot due to a bone spur. It gives me flexibility to do that.

    I ordered half-size bigger than I need, it was still way too small!
    Otherwise, looks great.

    Great boot! Order 1 size larger for sure. I wear tested the Garmont Antelao and the Kayland Globo for couple days and finally decided on the Garmont Antelao for several reasons. The Antelao was comfortable from the get go, very little break in required. I wore them on the trail backpacking 3 days after getting them. We hiked over 15 miles and I was carrying a 40 pound pack. I had no hot spots or blisters. I typically get a WIDE in boots (Asolo) but didn't need a wide in the Garmont Antelao once I got the right size. The heal cushion was better than the Kayland Globo in my opinion. The best feature was the lacing system on the Garmont Antelao, I was able to lock my heel in keeping from getting "toe jam" on the down slopes. Basically, I could get a custom fit for the conditions I was hiking. The Kayland Globo had a lot of toe room but I couldn't get the laces as tight as the Garmont. Overall the Garmont Antelao is a great boot, comfortable and a solid choice for backpacking and hiking.
