Got them here: http://www.giftsfromfinland.com/ I think there is another company that makes minimalist hiking boots as well but I couldn't find the info so I just went with the feelmax.I'm a Meindel man myself... Unfortunately, just like most things, you need both. It like having -15 sleeping bag and a 40 degree sleeping bag, 2 completely different uses. I completely agree with some sturdy ankle support but if you are just doing day hunts, it's just too much boot for early season hunts. If something goes down, I come out, get a pack frame, boots and away I go to retrieve.
For me... On a daily basis of 1 day hunts from the truck, it's as light as possible.
Dito... Where did you buy them? I can only find them in Europe. Or at least in Euro currency.
