Beautiful Boots!

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Michigan Hiker from Michigan on Wednesday, March 23, 2016
These are really an outstanding pair of traditional leather hiking boots. Surprisingly comfortable the very first time I put them on. My feet just loved how they felt. These are not heavy "waffle stompers" that might require weeks of breaking in before being comfortable. The leather is soft and flexible. The stiff vibram soles offer excellent traction and protection. Classic old school styling. No bright colors or fluorescent tapes. No Goretex. And not overly heavy. On the scale my pair weighs two and half pounds, very light for traditional leather boots. They are sized quite generously. Normally I wear a size 7 1/2 wide, but the medium fit perfectly. They will get even more comfortable with some wear and break-in. These are boots, not cushiony
soft running shoes and most likely would require padded insoles or footbeds to align with modern tastes in footwear, but I found them quite comfortable as is. They are waterproof right out of the box. I tromped through muddy fields and stayed dry. They will require maintenance, but with normal care I expect them to last a lifetime. Worth every penny of the full retail price but with the Sierra Trading Post discounted price they are a really outstanding bargain. I love these boots. They are very well
made and look great to my old school eyes, just what I was looking for.
