    Getting tired of sweaty GoreTex feet.

    Great, no complaints


    But not made for walking in water.

    Once broken in, which takes over a month, you never think about them.

    what's "user friendly" mean in a boot?
    I don't see any velcro straps...


    those might be fine boots, no clue.... but a poor choice for CC'ing due to the lug/cleat sole

    I wonder how light they are in weight. The reviews made them look like they’ll hold up good for our type of work.

    pee-esss..

    regardless of name, quality of materials and construction or price.....
    If they don't feel great when putting them on new, put 'em back on the shelf and find ones that do

    anyone that suffers thru a month of pounding new boots into submission is a mow-ron

    not so much the weight, Matt (though lt wt is nice) but heavy lugs/cleats on any sole are very difficult to wipe clean on walk off mats .
    Less aggressive/no lug soles (like boat shoes) are much easier to shed mud/dirt/grass clippings when walking in and out of homes




    it's always been glues that fail first , due to being subjected to pre-sprays, chems, steam.
    that constant environment can also rot/weaken threat stitching
