Perfect Trail Boots

Reviewed by Chris from Fort Collins, CO on Monday, August 24, 2015
I have very wide, 10.5 size feet. I bought the wide fit version of these boots and just finished a 3 day 30-mile backpacking trip in the Mount Zirkel Wilderness. The boots were brand new and I had no blisters at the end of the trip. These boots are light, tough, actually waterproof, and the pronounced heel is really nice for preventing sliding when hiking down steep hills. They held up really well, show no signs of wear, and are definitely well built, however, I will only be using them as trail hiking boots. Most of the boot is made of tough fabric and it has intricate stitching on the upper portion. I work as a field ecologist, and in the past, working in high desert environments were plants are prickly or working in densely vegetated areas were seams tend to get pulled at, stitching tends to get pulled out and eventually the boot will split at the seams.

These boots are the most comfortable pair of boots I have ever owned, but in the interest of maximizing their longevity, I will only be wearing them when I am hiking established trails or when it snows in town.
