I tried on a pair of their Mountain Extreme boots at the NRA convention a couple of years ago. It was slipping my feet into pillows. I was sold. I bought a pair and never looked back. Since then I have tried a couple other boots. I have come to the conclusion that buying boots is like buying good glass - you get what you pay for. The high end boots are just that. Schnee, Lowa, Meindl, etc. are all quality with subtle differences. Some feet just feel better in certain makes. If you run a "Kenetrek
" search on LRH, you should find a similar thread. In it, I posted a reply with a link or reference to an article that reviewed all the top end boots. It was unbiased and a practical guide.
