Old-school leather, modern technology

Back in the day, the only boots you'd see on any Colorado summit were all leather, and half of them were Vasque. Erikssons feature full-grain leather uppers, excellent Vibram soles, goretex liners. Leather boots take longer than nylon to conform to your feet. Once they break in, they fit and they last. These are sturdy enough for crampons or a heavy pack, still light enough for day hikes. I'm a guy w 9.5 B width feet, bought women's size 11 med. Length is true to size, width is slightly wider than most in the forefoot/toe, perfect with thicker socks. Price is half of retail, free returns @ STP retail stores, and these come w 2 pair of laces in different colors. If, like me, you shop hard for durable gear @ bargain prices, try these.
