Built to Last

Verified Buyer Reviewed by emwhysee from Portland, OR on Monday, April 19, 2010
After a decade of hard use, I finally had to accept it was time to replace my old school leather hiking boots.
Right out of the box, the workmanship is apparent. Nothing crazy or high-tech going on here...just beautifully, impeccably built boots. At a time when there seems to be a lot of "disposable" gear out there -- wear it one season and then replace it -- it's nice to put on something that's clearly built to last. Though these are "men's" boots, they fit the female foot well too -- esp. wearing a well-cushioned hiking sock. Definitely benefit from some break-in time.
I love the longevity and "organic" wear and fit of leather hiking boots, and these are top notch. I look forward to years of use out of these.
