Soles Are A Problem

Reviewed by Able Albert from Lakeville, CT on Wednesday, February 22, 2012
I loved these boots when I bought them 3 years ago and I loved them until yesterday when the soles broke right behind the 3-pin reinforcing plate built into the Vibram sole. I made it out of the Adirondacks without getting out my duct tape but barely. I confess to being hard on my equipment, skiing with a backpack over tough terrain. But I've never broken a ski (I only ski on wood skis) so I thought the boots would last longer than this. I am told the soles cannot be replaced. At least now with the "bills" removed I have a great pair of heavy duty hiking boots. It looks like some Crispi Antarctics are in my future. I hope some size 45's or 46's show up on Sierra Trading Post some day.
