solid boots

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Dejoc from New Zealand on Thursday, March 2, 2017
These boots are well made. The shank is quite stiff, - hard to bend with bare hands. The stitching looks pretty good, and the one piece suede covers most of the places where water might get in. The balance is cordura on the side panels, and so far no issue with leaks - but it is a dry summer here. Have used a waterproofing product to enhance that aspect. Sizing seems true. Comfortable fir and minimal breaking in required. Got a five day trip in to the back country in a couple of weeks, lots of river crossings and climbing and swamps so that will be a good test.
