Ideal hiking boot

Verified Buyer Reviewed by carl seattle from carl seattle on Sunday, August 20, 2017
I tried these because STP doesn't sell Dachstein's anymore. Am I lucky! Wore these for a day before doing a 5,000 ascent, half dirt trail and half snowfield. They kept my feet dry when they were supposed to and provided me all the support I needed along the trails and rocks. Not as supple as the Dachstein approach boots but I've already gotten a couple of normal trail hikes in and I love the light feel. It did take an hour or so to get used to the higher heel but that's going to be great for backpacking. No fitting issues other than an occasional rub on the inside of my ankle bone which I solved by not tieing the shoes so tight.
