    First of all let me say these boots were Fantastic and I would have them again in a heart beat! That said this is a review and there were a few things i noticed that could be improved upon.

    I bought my boots about 8 months ago just before i went on holiday for 6 months. I chose them because they seemed to fit the best out of all the Lowa's, meindels, 5.11's i tried on. Once i was wearing them in fury (and in fury i wore them) i noticed that the inside of the heel of the boot was wearing quite quickly, having seen this problem in Oakleys before I quickly taped the inside back up with some sniper tape and they were fine for the 6 month duration.
    I also found that if you have slightly hobbit shaped feet (narrow heels, wide forefeet) that the lacing system didnt quite hold your heel in place which lead to a bit of rubbing. This was fine as simply tightened the forefoot up more, but they weren't as comfortable as when i'd first bought them (not enough to make me not want to use them though.).
    The final critisism i have of the boot was of the laces, I eventually had to replace the laces as they almost snapped, probably more due to me constantly getting my boots off and on to let them air, but a slightly more hardier lace with ends that cant frey would go down a treat.

    All these critisisms aside the boots were comfortable, breathable and very lightweight, a godsend when its scorching hot and you've got a heavy pack on. Plenty of grip and a sturdy sole helped in many a situation and helped absorb alot of impact.

    All in all I would give these boots 8 out of 10 thumbs up.
