Finally, no heel blisters! Nice toe box.
Reviewed by RB from CA on Sunday, July 19, 2015
Just got back from backpacking (6 miles round trip) w/ these after wearing them around the house for hours. First time EVER I had no heel blisters (of course I always use moleskin or molefoam as a preventative...but all other boots turned my heels into raw hamburger). So thanks, Teva, for making boots with heels that fit and aren't gigantic! And a nice big toe box so your toes aren't cramped. However, the tongue could definitely use more padding; I did feel some minor pain across the tendons on top of my foot. If you were hiking 10 miles a day it might be a problem and you would want to pad under the tongue, I'd expect. I also used another reviewer's advice to wear tennis wrist sweatbands around my ankles to pad them more. Great Idea, so I did that (also helped keep debris out of the top of the boot). I bought the size 10 and was worried it would be too small as I usually wear 10.5 or 42, but it felt fine during the trip (although I did wear slightly thinner socks this time, to compensate). The color is a little strange, but who cares...nice to have a wild color instead of brown or black. And all with a good Vibram sole, too. I have been backpacking with various ill-fitting boots for about 40 years.
