These boots are supportive and stable, provide excellent grip on all terrains and very little break-in time was required. The boots are breathable enough to use on warm days without your feet overheating and work well navigating moderate terrain carrying a light load (~25 lbs) for several hours at a time. I would highly recommend these boots for anything from a light day hike to a several day excursion.
This is a well-designed and constructed boot with firm ankle support and a fairly stiff Vibram sole for rugged terrain. Requires break-in time to soften the uppers. Gore-Tex lining of course traps heat and causes foot sweating. Would rate a full 5-stars from me if the toe box was a little wider.
These fit great out of the box. They are super lightweight and for those looking for ankle support I would recommend. I feel very stable in these and they have just the right amount of give. They fit true to size. I have wide feet 4.5” wide and although they aren’t rated as wide they fit well even with thicker socks.
Only negative is that the rand placement is slightly off from one boot to the other. Doesn’t appear to affect performance, but worth a mention if you care about that sort of thing.
I’ve got about 40 km on them so far and looking forward to a summer of backcountry.
