Just what I wanted

Reviewed by Farmer Ted from VT on Tuesday, January 24, 2012
Because of reviews, I bought 1/2 size big. I take a 10.5 and bought an 11. A 10.5 would have fit ok, but 11 is great with an extra pair of socks. Other reviews have called these "toe crushers". I was concerned about that at first, and there is some pressure on your toes (fully flexed), but after a dozen uses, I don't seem to notice it any more. There is good support in the ankles and heel. The bill of the boot is thicker than some, but they worked in my bindings. It is a very good "off trail" boot and I'm glad I found these here at Sierra. Just a word of caution: this nice Italian leather will get chewed up by breaking trails in an ice crusted snow (after a freezing rain). My old Asolo's look like a dog's chew toy now.
