WELL MADE COMFORTABLE BOOT
Mary Ann Parke
These boots are fabulous for fit, comfort, construction, great traction, light insulation, and easy off and on. Healing a pf and associated knee problem by morphing into barefoot shoes, I needed something for colder weather and at least light snow and ice. Traction is great on packed snow trails and is as good as or better than a Vibram sole for ice. Thermal insole has worked fine down to zero degrees F as long as I keep moving. For size, I'm a solid 41/10 and ordered a 42/11, as recommended in the sizing guidance, which is working very well. A light wool liner sock with a regular wool rag sock fit comfortably. Have walked a bit less that 100 k in them so far and my pf and knee difficulties have completely disappeared. I AM VERY PLEASED WITH THESE BOOTS!
Enjoying So Far
I ordered the Tracker in my normal size and it was too small. Once I got the right size, the Tracker has been wonderful in 20 degree F weather and hiking in the PNW. I went to a football game in them and with not moving for a period of time my toes did get cold, with 2 pairs of wool socks on. When moving your feet will be warm though!
I do not normally like high top boots, so not using one of the boot loops makes it more comfortable for me to hike and walk in.
The black Trackers are very black... If you are looking for transition in color somewhere on the boots, or a splash of color on them, it does not exist. The boots do come with a red pair of laces, which I appreciated. I had wanted the brown Trackers but they were out of my size at the time.
Amazing Hiking Boots
Exactly the shoe, hiking boot, I was looking for. Perfect fit and the quality is superb. Looking forward to lots of great trekking in 2018 wearing them.
