Nice boots

Before Goretex the ideal was a single piece of smooth leather with as little stitching as possible. These have no goretex, nubuck leather, and lots and lots of stitching. Nonetheless, I'll take 'em! The goretex linings may keep feet dry from external wetness, but the boots themselves can still be a soggy mess to walk in, and in all conditions the goretex makes for really sweaty feet. I've dosed these boots with snoseal wax enough to keep the exterior leather itself from becoming a soggy mess. I've yet to see how all that stitching works out. To me the important part is that these boots without goretex and with leather lining can breathe.
I was a bit leery of the height of the boots, but I've found that it's just fine, very supportive. And the tongue holding stud works swell.
Unlike some of today's boots with glued on soles, these soles are tough enough to handle the pile of rocks that the AT is in my neck of the woods.
