Awesome boot with a few caveats

Verified Buyer Reviewed by JetExpert from Charleston, SC on Monday, November 12, 2012
Bought a pair of these boots when they were being branded under EMS (Eastern Mountain Sports) 15 years ago and have them to this day. Those boots have thousands of rough miles and brutal, uncared for life. Bought these new pair and while they seem a little heavier have the same fit. They are very very hard to break in and do cause mild discomfort while you're going through that process but you'll own them forever. Unmatched ruggedness that cleans easy and keeps your feet and ankles protected. The only complaints I have is that they run large (11.5 sent back for 11) and that the leather construction on the right boot is slightly off. Don't know why.
