Agree! It's all about fit, whether you get them at Payless or Summit Hut. I'd be a bit leery of Payless because of durability but the point remains--whatever fits. So you have to do the research, go try on a few. Socks are important too, some people wear liners with thick socks over them. I did this for years but lately just wear the thick socks.big_load wrote:Brands and models aren't very important compared to how well they fit. (Glass slippers are inadvisable, though).
I take back my last statement. BIG OL PIECES OF CRAP!!!!!!!! Have no idea what happened at Angel Basin, but took them to Reavis Falls this past weedend. Almost walked the last 2 miles with just my socks on. The balls of my feet hurt so friggin bad. I think it was the down hill. Now it's time to save some money and hit up REI and get some good stuff. Been looking at the Merrills, but will go there and try different ones on first. If my feet didn't hurt so bad, I won't have had a single complaint coming up out of there. Acually, it wasn't too bad. Dam them cheap boots! Leason learned.kevinweitzel75 wrote:Just bought a pair of Merona's at Target on sale for $20. Awsome boots. Took them to Angel Basin, and for the first time my feet felt great. Waterproof, to a point, and my feet didn't hurt the slightest. We'll see how long they last.
