Vibram rubber compounds and technologies are the gold standard in the outdoor industry for reliable, high-performance grip and traction. They offer precise, unparalleled responsiveness and support that's specifically engineered for your activities. "With the right foundation, you can build anything." -some guy.
If you haven't heard of GORE-TEX by now, you've probably been living under a rock. And that would make sense, because living under a rock is probably the only place where you wouldn't need the durable waterproof and windproof protection that GORE-TEX fabrics offer. So when you're ready to venture out from under your rock, arm yourself with the comfortable protection of GORE-TEX.

Great if they match up to your needsReviewing footwear is tricky. It's not fair to judge a boot for being too wide or narrow, since everyone is different and it's not the boot's fault if it didn't fit you. For me, this boot was a little bit wide for my strange alien feet. But there was so much that made me want to love these boots and gain some weight in my feet so that I could wear them forever.,,,,The quality is amazing. They are the toughest backpacking boots I've owned. The break-in period wasn't that bad. Plenty of cushioning. And the gore-tex is genuinely effective at breathing in mild weather.,,,,That being said, you need to ask if these boots meet your needs. They aren't light. They almost feel like mountaineering boots, and I wouldn't hesitate to use them with crampons for a mild snow climb. They're waterproof, so they can get hot. You wouldn't want them for a day hike unless you just really like heavy boots. You will want them for carrying heavy loads over talus and scree. Oh and they look good too!

Stubborn but worth itI had to exchange for the wide version and they took a LONG time to break in. I wore them on a 12 mile hike every week for 6 months and still was unsure about them. I almost gave up. After hiking in NZ for 6 weeks I'm glad I stuck it out. Awesome! The heavier the load the better they will feel.
