Thanks to the new EVA midsole and PU Spine system, the Garmont Men's Flash GTX Hiking Boot offers generous support for tough terrain yet weighs in at just over a pound per boot. The nubuck leather uppers and Gore-Tex membrane unite for complete waterproof protection, and the lugged Vibram sole gives you a secure grip wherever you roam. Plus, the G-fit construction means this boot will take a fraction of the time to properly break in.
I bought this boot because I needed something for camping and day hikes when I didn't want to wear my La Sportiva approach shoes. The first time I took them out we hiked Mt. Sherman and spent the weekend camping. The boot is definitely water proof as we crossed a couple streams and snow fields. They are also extremely sticky on the rock with the vibram sole. It was my first hike in these and I didn't have one blister and they broke in quick. Pretty much my go to boot now anytime there is snow or water to be dealt with.
Narrow footbox. I returnned it because of it.
