Verified Buyer Reviewed by squirrler from Greater Rocky Mountain region on Saturday, August 9, 2014
Working as a land surveyor in the Rocky Mountain region places a lot of demand on a pair of boots. Anything from steep mountainsides to swampy river bottoms may be encountered during a day of work. These boots are capable of handling just about anything I have thrown at them. I love the fact that they are leather with a leather lined interior, coupled with a pair of wool socks and you have happy blister free feet. Not sure why most boot manufacturers feel the need to only offer boots that are lined with gore-tex. Might as well wrap your feet in a pair of plastic trash bags on a hot summers day. As others have said this is a stout boot, fast and light does not apply to this boot. Expect a bit of a break-in period, what else would you expect from 3mm top grade leather? Treated with Obenauf's LP and you can rest easy that your made in Italy, red laced, retro mountaineering kicks are going to be walking around long after you are.
