We trekked about 5-7 hours a day for 10 days and despite packing many blister treatments, I DID NOT NEED THEM, I had zero blisters. This boot gripped extremely well to rocks and other potential slippery surfaces. My ankle support was firm but not restricting. When I was breaking it in, I had slight discomfort on the left side but after a couple hours breaking it in, it subsided.
The boot was warm and water resistant, though we were not in snow or water much. I did wear two pairs of socks, one thin and one high quality hiking sock.
I thought it only fair to write a review about this boot as others might be in the same situation, I was extremely pleased with this boot.
I have to add that after 2 years of moderate use the waterproofing got dinged, began to peel and they became not waterproof. I have read that it's not unusual for a synthetic boot to lose it's waterproofing after a couple years. I have a pair of Columbias that also developed a waterproofing issue A spray-on worked fine because there was no damage. The sprays weren't enough on these due to the peeling, the Shoe Goo was a mess and lifted after a few hikes. I finally settled on Gear Aid Freesole which I'd used to make toe caps for my leathers. It worked great on these as well for the repair. I still think they're a good buy at this price point, but I wouldn't recommend them if you're going to be doing a lot of rock scrambling. The black area around the base of the shoe is the area that got dinged and is a thin rubber film laminated to the shoe body. If you do buy them and injure them on the black area, fix the ding right away with a spot of Freesole.

Shoe seems to small just because my Left Pinky Toe is in Pain. I hope it loosens up but it hasn't yet. I hate to send back because I threw my other shoes out.Published 15 months ago by Anita D Robinson

Bought for my wife. She likes. They do run small. If you like thicker socks go up a full size.Published on January 15, 2013 by C-Rog
