Old School

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Jonathan Stone from California on Thursday, April 12, 2018
There is an old adage amongst backpackers that says, mind the ounces and the pounds will take care of themselves. I wanted to love these boots. They are beautiful. They fit perfectly. They look like something Mallory would have worn. They weigh nearly 2 pounds apiece. They feel like walking while wearing ankle weights. I could learn to love them, and they are probably great on the trail, warm and secure, but 25 miles in, do I want 2 pounds of extra footwear? For the kind of high Sierra hiking I do, a pair of lightweight hikers just makes more sense.
