Comfortable out-of-the-box

Verified Buyer Reviewed by JW the day hiker from San Jose, CA on Wednesday, March 31, 2010
I've worn Lowa boots for many years with good luck, but couldn't pass on leather boots with a replaceable Vibram sole. I changed the insoles when they arrived to accommodate my orthodic (and because I wanted a bit more padding) and found them comfortable--but a bit stiff--walking around the house. I worried some about break-in time, but they were fine after a mile or so hiking on a local trail. The second time out we had to scramble over a few boulders on a trail that had exposed roots. The soles gripped well and I felt sure-footed climbing both up and down. I'm very satisfied.
