Best Leather Hiking Boots Ever!

Reviewed by Backcountry Monkey from Philadelphia, PA on Tuesday, February 26, 2008
Amazing boots and here is the proof. These boots arrived at my door step an hour before heading to Glacier National Park in the middle of February. They didn't need any break-in period, comfort from the start. I hiked between 10-25 miles a day on paved roads, trails, scree fields, and lots of snow fields. I then came back and hiked 30 miles of the Appalachians in PA that weekend. These boots performed well with everything I threw at them. I ordered a half size larger than my measured foot which is probably why I didn't have problems breaking them in. I felt they might be too big at first but I am very pleased with the extra room, perfect fit at the end of the day. On steep technical terrain and snowfields I would have preferred a stiffer sole, but for everything else they are perfect. Great boot.
