It's early but I like the changes I see

These were recently bought to replace an earlier version of this boot which was essentially the same. The updates I see in the new boot are all improvements. I liked the other boots or I wouldn't have ordered these. If I'd known about the changes I might have ordered sooner!

The boot still runs narrow so you may want to order a "wide" unless your foot is truly medium or more narrow.

The lacing system is slick on these; it works better than before. Pull the tension you want in the bottom laces and use the speed hooks to finish....easy and fast. The release is equally easy so getting the boot off is no problem.

The gusseted tongue is softer/more padded and the upper has a little easier flex than my old boot. These should break in quickly. They're pretty comfortable right out of the box but I wouldn't start a long hike with 'em just yet.

BTW...the boot is a little darker than the photo. My old boots were that tan color but what I got was a little more brown than the tan color shown..

I hope these hold up as well as the first pair I had. They lasted a long time and remained waterproof even after the soles finally separated from the upper.

If you like a firm sole and need a tough boot with good ankle support, these are worth a look in my opinion.
