I hike every single time I get the chance and I don’t pay attention to the weather conditions and I want the very best performance from my hiking boots since I want to climb the highest mountains, over the wet rocks, slippery or not.

So, when I got these a few years ago, I was expecting the best hiking boots and… indeed they are the best. For me, anyway.

I tried 7 pairs of boots before I got these and I was more than happy to find the perfect fit, the most comfortable, the most reliable boots ever.

The size was just right and the fit was perfect. They didn’t need any time to break in either, so I was glad to take them out the next day I got them.

I haven’t experienced any toe crushing, any rubbing in these boots and even my bunions (yep, it happens as you get older) didn’t bother me anymore.

The soles of the boots are great and have a good grip, no matter how the trail gets: rocky, slippery, wet.

The boots keep my feet warm (on a 6 degree day, my feet are the only thing that’s warm) and this means I can hike a lot in the winter also.

The arch support is also very good and the boots have the right amount of padding.

The boots are easy to put on, to take off and easy to clean. As I do take them in the muddy places a lot, I just hose them off a bit and let them dry in the sun- quick and easy!

After all these years of constant wearing (I even wore them while jogging once), I am surprised to see how the metal is still firmly embedded and how the boots are holding up. Very, very well made, long lasting for sure.

Short list of pros:

  • the boots are very comfortable
  • they are waterproof
  • they are long lasting and durable
  • they hold up so well in the cold and in heavy duty hikes
  • the boots have good grip and give good traction, even on slippery/uneven surfaces
  • the boots are fairly light – not too heavy, not too light
  • they don’t need a break in period
  • the boots give good arch and ankle support
  • they never gave me any blisters or hot spots

As I try to wear these all year long, it’s a little bit more difficult in the summertime- they are not very breathable and my feet sweat a lot after a while. I have to use some medical powder on my feet, inside the socks, but it’s not the best way to wear hiking boots in the summer.

My feet are wide and it’s fine with these boots, but I think regular feet would have a problem fitting. The boots run wide.

The arch support could be improved.

My short list of “cons”:

  • the breathability might be better
  • the boots run wide
  • the arch support could be improved

Not many things bother me about these boots, as you can see. I still think they are the best boots I ever had and I wouldn’t change them for others!
