Very good, old style boots

Reviewed by docdiamond from Raleigh, NC on Sunday, March 2, 2008
I am an avid hiker, and enjoy backpacking and long day hikes. I liked the sound of these boots because they are old style, heavy leather boots. When I first got them, I almost sent them back. The footbeads are worthless, and they felt like two by fours duct taped to my feet when I first put them on. However, I put in some Meindl cork footbeds (from Cabelas) and put a couple of coats of Limmer Boot Grease on them. The footbeds helped the boots to fit much better, since they were overly spacious inside with the worthless foobeds that came with the boots. As I have worn them for the past week or so, the boots have broken in pretty fast, and they are now very comfortable. I can't wait to try them on a long hike in the backcountry, but for now, I am very satisfied with these boots. Especially at the price they are being offed at STP.
