I backpack the Wind River Range and Beartooth Range mostly off trail. This summer's grand adventure took me 60 miles off trail on the eastern side of the Wind River, which is as desolate as wilderness gets in the lower 48. My feet were well protected and never sweaty or raw. These boots were a pleasure to wear through endless miles of boulder talus with firm shank, but also functioned well on long trailed days with a nice rocking stride. These have a wider toe box than most European manufactures of outdoor boots. Quality is impeccable and price point is inexpensive with what you really get.
Comfortable, great in steep-uneven terrain.
Side-sloping with a heavy pack is a breeze and the stiff shank has given me a ton of confidence in the mountains.
I highly recommend these boots to outdoor professionals.
Superb quality. A bit stiffer sole than I needed. Not too narrow for my wider feet. High arch support. Seem extremely durable.
