Outstanding - So Far

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Swamp Daddy from Western Massachusetts on Monday, June 22, 2009
After a week of constant break-in wear (no loads but three applications of Sno Seal), my Guides feel great. My pair is medium width, and runs a little narrow in the heel but average across the ball, perfect for backpacking. Nice strong heel counter. Overall, stiffer than most of what's on the market today, but back in the 70s these would qualify as an easy-break-in boot.
