Voted 2/5

Bought these boots for my overall trail hiking pair. I've put about 70 miles on them this past season including some snow climbs and crampons usage. Even as a simple trail hiking boot they a little weak to the abuse granite gives them. Claimed to be mostly water proof but even with a layer of water resistant gu they can get wet with the smallest dip in a stream. Might just be my feet, but these boots just feel a little odd. My 2 cents...
