I ordered these boots after a ten year old pair of Montrail Moraine AT's started coming apart and I was forced to wear an Asolo lighthiker boot on a very wet four day trip into Panthertown Valley NC. My ankles were shot on the hike back to the car and water got in when I misstepped on a creek crossing. I decided to get some tall boots with great support and these boots have all of that. I have not worn them on a camping trip yet but have been breaking them in on the trails around my neighborhood. Due to my flat feet and how stiff the ankle area is I think this is wise before going in for a 4-5 day camping trip. So far I am pleased and hope that this Summer I will be giving a great follow-up review after another awesome camping trip.

A landscapers best friends is ....... Normally I would finish that statement with "a good pair pf boots", but I could make an argument that it might be STP and their customer service reps. The majority of my work includes 15 miles of walking over hilly terrains often in dewy wet grass so a good pair of waterproof boots is a must have. These Zamberlans are sweet. Very comfy after break in and offer a ton of ankle support for the hilly inclies with very good traction. And they are Gore-Tex waterproof. Over the past month I purchased 3 different pair of boots trying to nail down 2 pair that I could rotate. A good pair of boots usually last me for 1 season of landscaping, but look like they have been through the ringer by seasons end. I will update how durable these are next year. After a week I regretted simply not buying 2 pair of the Zamberlans as they were clearly the best all around boot for my work needs. But that is what trial and error is for correct? STP policy allowed me the ability to test a few different boots and their customer service rep (Don) remedied my regret of not getting 2 pair of Zamberlans initially by going the extra mile to acquire a 2nd pair of these in my size as well as handling my returns with exceptional understanding of my dilemma. These Zamberlans are awesome and are just in time for me to go and tackle leaf season.
Pros: Ankle Support, Comfortable, Dries Quickly, Durable, Great Traction, Pronation Control, Secure Fit
