These are great and give me excellent arch support as well as throughout the foot and ankle. The first pair got me up Mount Kilimanjaro via the western breach. I gave that pair to a porter with no money to buy his own. So, I got these.
I’m a wildlife technician and I virtually live in my hiking boots day in and day out. These took a bit to break in, and with the neoprene collar, I have to tie the laces in a specific way to ensure my heel doesn’t slip. I’d almost prefer more ankle support for what I’m doing, but the neoprene is very comfy. The sole on these boots is PHENOMENAL. I’ve taken them on talus, scree, loose soil, steep slopes, and through mud. The traction blows my old keens out of the water. Waterproofing is pretty standard and my feet don’t get soaked if I’m occasionally crossing small streams. When they do soak through, they’re wet and heavy for a good while. Little touches like the eyelets and lacing points give these boots bonus points. Overall, a very solid boot!
Best trekking shoes ever buy.
