Awesome boot, especially for wide feet
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Awesome boots! I've taken them through streams, mud, and snow and my feet stayed very dry and comfortable. They're pretty stiff and offer great ankle support, walking over loose uneven ground I felt very stable and never felt like I was going to roll an ankle. The sole offers great cushion and traction. After 9+ miles of hiking my feet didn't feel fatigued and I never slipped despite walking over snowy and muddy terrain. I think these boots are 5 star material but I gave them 4 because of their fit on me. They seem to run a little big. I picked up a pair of 9.5's but could have gone with the 9's. I have narrower, low volume feet and definitely have some wiggle room up in the toe box. Regardless, I'm happy with them. They seem to be made with great craftsmanship and I'm excited to see how they hold up to the test of time.
Taking a 3 day hike in presidentials with a mid weight pack. In your opinion how would these boots perform in rocky terrain and steeper slopes?
