I wore this boot for a couple of weekend trips to Big Sur before using them hiking in East Greenland during the thaw. I have never been so excited about a pair of boots! I averaged 30 km per day with one day at 53 km. My legs and feet were not tired... I had to stop because I was too sleepy! No trails in East Greenland and lots of bouldering and rivers to ford. My feet never got wet (I was also wearing good gaiters) and I never got a hot spot, let alone a blister. I don't know why other people are writing that these boots are heavy? They are actually quite light for this sort of boot.

200 miles and still in good shape (East Greenland)
