Great Old School Backpacking Boot

Reviewed by Sierra Hiker from California on Sunday, April 6, 2014
After several years of not hiking/backpacking started up again and needed a hiking boot quickly. Found these at STP for a very reasonable price and purchased them. While it is not recommended to just wear them out of the box on a hike, I did, and wasn't disappointed. My first hike with them was Half Dome. I did not get a single blister and on the downhill part of the hike, they held my ankles securely in place to prevent my toes from getting battered in the toe box. They are very well made, all leather (even leather lined), heavy duty, backpacking boots that have now stood the test of time and distance, without a hiccup. The way to get the best value is to wait for STP to have a sale and purchase them. The only negative, and it really isn't a negative, is that they are rather heavy. But that is really just a matter of being in adequate physical shape in the first place.
