i'd love to rate these boots a 5 star, but sadly after wearing a few days and noticing the left one didn't feel right, i brought them into a hiking store to see what they thought and they laughed. immediately they saw the first steel lace holder on the left shoe, right side, was about 3/4" inch too far forward...pulling on the right side of that boot, which was exactly where it was too tight on me. unfortunately i've gotten a few too many of these manufacturer seconds or defects from sierratradingpost. their policy of NOT refunding original shipping costs even with defects on items that never should have been sold, add up. prices are good, shipping fast, and i wouldn't mind even running around returning all the defective merchandise, but to be charged shipping for it is really an insult. likely my last purchase from these guys...for that specific reason. as for the zamberlan boot, i'd like to rate them higher but can only judge them on the pair i received, and as well as they are otherwise built or feel, and look, this is really an absurd putting the steering wheel of a car in the middle rather than on the left in the u.s., or right in britain.
