Idaho KidOut of the box ready

Voted 5/5

This boot is awesome, it was ready to go right out of the box. I have taken it on snowshoe trips. It has just enough of a lip to comfortably keep the snowshoe securely snug to the boot. With the Gor-tex my feet stayed nice and dry. Lately I have gotten more into spring hiking; my normally sweety feet have stayed nice and comfortable.

I would highly recommend this boot to anyone looking for a good hiking boot.

captainbuudaHas a serious construction flaw

Voted 3/5

Actually, I had a very similar experience when I bought my pair back in march of this year. Great fit and feel right out of the box; great for day-hikes and backpacking.
The problem came after a small day-hike with a few stream crossings. After that hike the low stitching on the side of the boot about 2 inches from the toe started unraveling on both sides on both boots. I was working with a trail crew at the time so I had to continue my use of the boots (all summer). The waterproof boot was then no longer waterproof. The gore-tex booties just held water after that point. Other than that the boot served me well-- it was just no longer waterproof and picked up scree very well. I eventually went to the thrift store in Ketchum, ID and bought a $10 pair of standard timberland boots.
The cheap timberlands have held up far better to the same conditions.
