    Thanks for the reminder.

    They are great boots. Enjoy them.
    I go to the Mountains to loose my mind and find my soul.

    I am awaiting the arrival of my first pair of Crispi boots. I found the perfect boots for me, but unfortunately they are no longer available. Those were the Meindl Perfekt Hikers that Cabela's no longer sells. My last pair lasted 8 years, and a do have a nearly new pair of Meindl Hunters for this falls elk hunt. I need a wide boot, with a stiff sole for early season treks, and I also wear it every day. I did a lot of looking around and reading reviews, and found the Crispi Valdres GTX at Midway USA. I will give a follow up report after some initial use.

    I really like my valdres. Holding up well and good support while packing and backpacking without feeling stiff while unloaded. Virtually zero breakin time for me.

    My initial reaction to the Valdres after wearing them a few days. First off, it appears to be a very high quality boot, but it has a piece of junk footbed. I replaced the footbed with the Meindl footbed, and it was a huge improvement. The boot feels stiffer than my Hikers were, and will require some breakin, but so far I have developed no hotspots or blisters. There is a loop at the back to assist putting them on, but it is too small for anything but my little finger. I don't carry a boot jack around with me, but maybe they will be easier to get on after a break-in. It sounds like I am nit-picking, but we shall see down the road.

    I have the summit gtx. You are right about the loop in the back don't do any good. Just don't seem like a $300 boot, but I guess we'll see.

    I’ve found that the footbeds in all the high end boots are garbage.

    Looking forward to your update. The Perfekt Hikers are my all time favorite boots. I have a pair that's several years old and still going strong, but I hate that they quit making them. I hate everything that BassPro is doing to Cabela's, but that's another story..... I just bought the last pair of Perfekt Hikers from Cabela's Bargain Cave. Paid only $69.99, but they're not EE width. I typically wear 11.5 EE. The new ones are 12 D. I figured they'd be close to right, and they are. Just a bit narrow, but not terrible. Still not the perfect fit that my old 11.5 EEs are though. I'd love to find another boot that fits and performs as good as the Meindls.
