Handmade=some blemishes

I hike mountains and backyards, these boots provide the means to an end.
Out of the box, felt like I was in a ski resort and just left my decks outside on the rack, Pretty stiff ride until broken in. Right boot looked like it was hustled through the cobblers shop, with glue streaks and stitching of the toe box misaligned, oh well the left made up for it.

Get rid of the cheap foam insoles before you try to break them in!!! I replaced mine with Sole Signature EV Ultra footbeds, turns the boot into a totally different animal, and less cumbersome on the foot/ankle during each step of the break-in period. 100% better feel with the Sole footbeds, seriously.

One piece perwanger leather and stitched Vibram soles? Whats not to like.

P.S. Replace the Footbeds, Order 1/2 size larger and Wider.
