For my pack I won't compromise on boot durability. My last pair of Alacia boots lasted over a decade. They have a stitched, genuine vibram sole. Other boots lighten the sole by cheating: shorter lugs, injection molded, the worst is a foam sole, looks like vibram, wears quickly. The Alicia boot is a great compromise, as light a boot as I would to depend on for days at a time. The workmanship is excellent. The reason only 4 stars: there is a boot, looks identical, that is over 2X the cost. The other boot has a leather liner. Even tho I've never had a blister in this boot, I guess that's better.
