Made for off-trail hiking

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Dan from Mesa, AZ on Monday, July 13, 2009
I do a lot of work in the Sonoran desert, mostly off-trail and often in the heat. This type of environment shreds most boots. One pair of expensive "mountaineering" boots had their soles un-glue in the heat and were flopping around like the shoes on a clown! Glorified tennis shoes do not cut it here. The old-school Vibram soles on these boots are perfect for these brutal conditions. I put sno-seal on boots right away, not as a water repellent, but as protection against slicing. There has not been an issue with breathability. These are the boots I have been looking for, and should last for many years.
