My friends sport around Kenetrek boots and have had nothing but great reports about them. This past season I put tons of miles on a pair of Asolo boots similar to these:Tribe GV, http://www.asolo.com/eng/prod_det.ph...=23&itemid=188 but in last years model. I have been absolutely stoked with the results. Totally waterproof, support my ankles and they take a beating. Good qualities in a boot!
