The fit of this boot got my attention right away. A 9 1/2 as always but despite the weighty look of the build of the boot I felt like I was wearing a perfect fitting moccasin. The ample toe room was the best and likely most important surprise. Recent boots have been tough for me as the correct overall fit seemed to cramp my toes always bringing another type of fatigue on hikes. I didn't like the flat laces at first but then realized that they allowed the important lacing step I've learned; double lacing the upper-most eyelet which adds friction, during the lacing process and holding the established instep tension while in use. The choice leather of the uppers also seems of great quality and uniform suppleness. I'm happy to have gotten such great boots and will do a first outing in them today or tomorrow!
