Comments about Black Diamond Factor Randonee Boots - Men's - '09/'10:
BD Factors are a solid boot. I use these as my all around boots in bounds at the park and also touring. I have also hiked in them for 7+ hours several times. They offer all day comfort (Mid-width/flat foot profile). Be sure the liners get molded to you foot for bonus comfort. These older models have a flimsy walk mode switch which has been updated. If you get a hold of BD they'll send you the new switches and they can be changed out quickly with an allen. The toe/heel pieces can be swapped out for AT soles so you can use Dynafit bindings.
Feels true to size
Feels true to width
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
