Hands down the best hiking boots I've ever owned. I have been wearing mine for years and years and they're still awesome. They're comfy, and tough all rolled into one awesome package. No rolling your ankle on rough ground with these on! I have worn them hiking through a creek, on sand, on rocks, through steep terrain, and everything in between. These boots are to footwear what all terrain tires are to cars. So if you're going on some long hikes, or going on a backpacking trip, check out the Zamberlan line. They're not cheap, but they wear like a dream and last forever, so you'll get your money's worth. And no matter what hiking boot you choose, it's always best to go to a reputable outdoor gear dealer and have someone fit you.
