Outstanding Mtn Boot
If you are chasing Goats or Sheep, you really should consider these leather boots, best I've worn. No they are not as durable as a plastic boot, but they are far more versitile in whatever you are doing around the mountains. A plastic will give you more support while side hilling with a heavy load, but they will tear your shins and feet apart on lower flat levels. You don't have to be a hunter to use them, I weekend climb and hike in mine. The sizing seems to run a tad small, they are one of the few boots offered in a wide (a big plus). Remember when trying them on, your feet will swell when you climb. I wish they fitted all climbing campons, but they work fine with Kahtoola campons. The breakin period is fast, acouple trips for me. They are water proof (A+). I don't think they are to expensive, considering how many pairs of boots you'll buy in the $250 range till you finally buy these. I do feel they are slightly better than Kenetrek, my friend has a pair of Kenetrek (I've never wore). Other boots that I've owened and used are Scrarpa, AKU (no longer available in US) and La Sportiva. I think when and if I wear these out I'll get another pair,

Great Preliminary Results
These boots are surprisingly light for the amount of ankle support and foot "anchorage" they offer. I have wide and irregular feet, and the 10.5 (W) that I purchased are extremely comfortable and yet stabilizing--in both feet. I can't wait to hunt in them in the Rocky Mountains!

The most comfortable boot..
I bought these thru zappos and they are so comfortable and warm, it is unbeleivable. I hated to take them off. Your feet stay dry in a snowy day and warm. Simply a BEST BOOT.

I was very disappointed that I had to send this boot back. The size just wasn't right. It seems to run a little smaller than usual. I'm hoping the next size will work, I've heard that it's a great boot.
