Beautifully made, old school boots

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Rob T from Austin, Texas on Tuesday, March 3, 2009
Beautifully made, old school full grain leather boots, very tough, yet comfortable right out of the box. Just the right amount of flex (it has a 3/4 steel shank)in the sole for general mountaineering and hiking in rough rocky ground. These will feel a little heavy at first compared to the flimsy approach shoes with vibram soles that are marketed as hiking boots these days, but you will get used to them, and be glad of the extra bombproof protection you have, over those in their hiking sneakers,when you encounter harsh terrain.Easily the best looking and feeling hiking boots currently on the market, in my opinion.Excellent price[...]. Highly recommended.
