Alright, so they're expensive. You could pay alot less but you will end up paying as much or more in the long run. Why not get it over with? The break in on these boots has taken me some time. 2 blisters so far but I have put tape on the back of my heels since that first intial use and no more problems. Superior in my opinion to just about anything else available in this type of boot. Norwegian welt construction is hard to find anymore since most boot makers has gone to "glue together" manufactoring. Zamberlan has "old school" construction here and you will not be disapointed. Beautiful boots and worth every penny!

I bought a pair of these boots in September, 2010. They are: exceptionally waterproof, tough, warm in winter but not hot in summer, breathable, rugged construction, slightly heavy, suitable for long (all day) hikes of 10+ miles, norwegian welted boots. Handmade, slight differences in construction noticeable from shoe to shoe but not a problem. Extremely comfortable for a boot of this style once broken-in. Norwegian welted means that the sole can be replaced by your local (reputable) shoe repair business. Downside: interior leather lining is soft, very comfortable but not as rugged as the rest of the boot. I hiked in my pair everyday for 3+ miles, rain or shine, summer or winter for 11 months and wore out the inner lining and the inner lining stitching. Boots were replaced without question from US office of Zamberlan under warranty. On second pair now, so far so good.

A.} To get the best answer for your question, I went to two BACKPACKER staffers who can relate: Jon Dorn and Ben Fullerton, both 66. Here are a few of their three-season picks.
