Solid boots so far.

Reviewed by Beesy from Ohio on Friday, February 27, 2015
Good:
Great fit
Good support
Solid lacing system (not ground breaking though)
Waterproofing has been excellent
Traction - deep lugs grip well
Insoles higher quality than Vasques and Merrells
Price

Not Good:
Comfort - especially in forefoot
Breathability
Stiff soles - will need more break in than anticipated

The boots have been good so far. I like my boots to fit like a glove and the lacing system is solid and allows me to get the feel I like. The insoles, although appear to be high quality, provide little cushioning and I'll be looking for new insoles soon (my superfeet blacks don't seem to like these boots). Without my Superfeet I haven't had any discomfort in my arch or foot. I'm finding a bit of moisture buildup in the boot but nothing terrible. These guys are stiff of of the box compared to several pairs of Merrell and Vasque mids I've owned. The left sole appears to be flexing a little differently than the right causing a bit of an unusual feel on my forefoot but hope it will go away as the boot breaks in.

Other thought: If I could get the underfoot comfort of my Merrell mids in these I'd be as happy as a gawking gopher!
