by fromLovely but delicate I bought last years model end of Nov 2009, Fell apart within 5 months. Cracks and splits in the man made uppers where my toe articulated.... The sole delaminated from the midsole, which gave me the evidence to return em. Loved the comfort, but they were slick on wet stone or logs. I am turned off of the manmade uppers, and will go back to the full grain leather, thinking Irish Setter 878's which I can polish and love.

by fromNot Waterproof Finally got to try these in pretty harsh/wet conditions going up to Upper Two Medicine Lake in Glacier NP during a steady drizzle/shower, and felt some coolness around my forefeet. Got back to the trail head to find my forefeet soaked. Fortunately I had wool socks on or I might have had serious problems. Don't rely on these boots to keep you dry!

by fromTwo strikes and you're out I was disappointed by these boots and will be returning them. On the first hike I ended up with severe blisters on both heels and soaking wet feet. I decided to give them another try as sometimes boots need some breaking in and I thought my wet feet were possibly due to top down wicking of moisture from wet foliage. On the second hike my heels fared a little better but my feet ended up wet from hiking through a little snow and crossing a 1 inch deep creek. Not acceptable performance from a boot with the Gortex logo. These boots might be acceptable for completely dry conditions but I don't live in the desert so they are going back.

by fromNice boot. Not Waterproof Backpacking the Pinchot Trail in PA. It rained the night before we started and our night on the trail. My feet were soaked within the first few miles and I was wearing gators. Unibody leather boots, the only kind that actually stay dry.

by fromLight, but not quite right for me. I bought these this Spring after seeing how light they were, they are over ten ounces less than my Asolo FSN 95 boots. I was also hoping the last (fit) was similar to my Salomon trail runners. Unfortunately this was not the case. The two main issues I have with these boots are: 1) The laces pinch at the second row from the top which caused my skin to become raw on both ankles. The tongue needs more padding at this location. 2) The top of the toe box rubbed against the top of my foot. I am thinking this might have been only a manufacturing defect since it was much worse on foot, it's hard to say for sure. I wrote this review mainly for anyone who uses Salomon trail runners. The boot almost looks like a hight top XA Pro 3D, but it's not. I bought these boots for when I need to travel on snow fields and glaciers with crampons. I've worn lightweight crampons on the XA Pro's, but that's a bit of a stretch! If they lowered the ankle cuff a bit and added fast lace this boot would be nearly perfect for light weight travel on any terrain. I guess my search continues...

by fromExtremly comfortable but not water proof wonderful boots in dry/hot conditions. breath great and are extremly comfortable. Only negative is that they get wet and cold easy.

by fromNow that the price has been reduced.... I use these in Afghanistan, in an administrative capacity, but my duties require a lot of outdoor activities, walking on rocks, and heavy lifting. I paid less than the sale price so I am pleased with them for my use. But, had I paid full price, I would have returned them (see my review of the Oboz Yellowstone II). Like other boots in this category, I think they would be best suited for easy trail walks or day hikes on level trails, with a light load (<30#). My chief complaint is the nylon eyelets do not secure my foot in the boot and the top most eyelets cinch uncomfortably around my instep. However, I'd be confident the outer materials would stand up well against low lying brush and rocks (compared to a set of TNF I had that didn't- they went back to TNF). I have the black but would prefer the lighter color, especially in the heat. I paid [$] so I found them to be an exceptional value. Ignore the socks I am wearing- I normally wear light/mid-weight wool socks. Again, had I paid MSRP, I would have returned them.

by fromlight and comfortable not really durable i have had these boots since last fall. i have used them for hiking, backpacking, snowshoeing, and occasionally to school when it was snowy. they are very comfortable and don't need to be broken in. they aren't waterproof but they resist a mild amount of water. if you are snowshoeing or hiking in deep snow with gaiters they will let in water. should keep out a short light rain. traction isn't great in wet or slick conditions. they are great for short to extended hikes because they are light and comfortable. if you need lots of support they are probably too light for you. soles are starting to break down. i have used them pretty heavily but its been less than a year.
