Rated5out of5byPhilip in AKfromUpdate: still superbThis is a one-year follow up to my previous review. I have a lot of days on these boots now, and they are still going strong. My fears of toe pinch and materials breaking down were largely unfounded, and the boots are as comfy and look nearly as good as when they were new. The black Cordura did get a little fuzzy where the sides of the boot rub on the sides of icy tracks, but I melted the nylon hairs back with a lighter and all is good. I got a pair for my wife and she loves them. Still my favorite challenging-xc-track boots yet. We have put in a few 15 mile days on these skiing up river beds here in Alaska in addition to lots of shorter trips, and I don't hesitate to reach for these every time. They are even admirably water resistant and we dash across creeks as long as the water is only a few inches deep. Highly recommended.
