great boot grabbed extra

Verified Buyer Reviewed by MTDagny from Montana on Monday, June 5, 2017
I got these boots on a friends recommendation. Out of the box I noted --wow! light. I've used them on two medium hiking trips (light back pack ... 5 miles or so). They fit well, nice room in the toe box, grip great,.... deliberately stepped in a mud hole and then stepped through a stream and feet remained dry. I was so happy with the purchase and impressed with the freedom of the light weight (maybe even lighter than my trail runners), I bought another pair as backup and a pair of the same style in a low shoe. The low shoe seams slightly less roomy in toe box but otherwise very similar. The only con was my feet got warm. I'm not a foot sweater/hot foot person so the fact that I noted the warmth (I was in wool socks despite a very sunny day) indicates that if your feet run hot this boot might be warm. I however live in the north so see this as a plus and I'll just adapt my socks.
