I think I had a pair of them in high school???? :scratch:
It could be. These are re-issues of the original 1980's model.
Oh okay. Then that is why I have seen them before. :salute:

My Danner Featherlights above are super lightweight, and will stand up to whatever you throw at them.
I picked up the Jag's a while back and they have held up well as a grab-and-go lightweight boot.

How generous is the toe-box width? I’m tending towards E-width for toe space in my work boots. Normal width Timberland shoes and Red Wing boots are too narrow across the toes.

I’m not sure what happened but I can no longer wear boots. The relatively hard sole (compared to sneakers) makes the bottom of my feet extremely sore. It’s a bummer because I loved boots.
Clarks Desert Boots with the crepe sole. The only downside is the soft sole wears quickly.

Has anybody tried super lightweight boots like LEMS boulder boots ?Image
Yep, they wore out in about 4 months. And I could feel every rock I stepped on. :crybaby: I wanted to love them.
These zero drop style boots or shoes is where I’m ending up for my wide toe box needs. Their concept fits my foot.
Did you beat them to death? I see reviews where the Lems boot lasted a long time. Then again, almost every shoe seems to have a subset of reviews where they fell apart in months. Chalk it up to piss poor QC maybe.
I bought them because I wanted to try zero drop shoes. In the end I regretted it. I couldn't hike it them or do anything that was abusive. I was thinking they would replace my Rossi boots. They couldn't even begin to do that. It was not money well spent for me. I was told afterwards they are more of a "town boot". WTF does that mean?

I want to try their Primal 2 shoe though. Just I hate spend another $100 on shit. But I do want to find a good zero drop shoe. So far my Vans have been the answer for that need.

Here is a real review about the boot https://gearjunkie.com/lems-boulder-boot-review
Just ordered a pair of Lems Trailhead sneakers. Sort of a light duty hiking shoe concept. I believe they have a minimal drop (maybe 4mm). Will let you guys know how they work. Was also considering lightweight Danners.

Just bought these at REI - La Sportiva Wildcat. Can not recommend them highly enough - incredibly comfortable and they last a long time (had an earlier version of them 6 years ago and used them for a Goruck challenge).

Update on the Lems Trailheads. Got mine in a couple of weeks ago, and have worn them approximately 10 times since then. A couple of hot spots the first two times I wore them, but since then they have been extremely comfortable. They wear close to a no-drop shoe for me, which means comfortably. Nice rugged sole for what is pretty much a sneaker, so I think they'll be good as a lightweight rec hiker and do-anything travel shoe. I spend most of my time at work on my feet doing procedures, and they provide good support for that. One thing is that they are not water resistant, but a little waterproofing spray makes them a good to go in the rain (not sure how well they'll deal with mud and creeks though).
Good review here:

I know winter is over but I had to post these killer boots I got at the tail end of the last crazy cold snap we got.

These are a brand called Royal Canadian (Men’s Aldershot model) and they are absolutely amazing. Warm as hell and so dam confortable. They’re rated to -35*C and waterproof.

They’re just a touch on the bulky side but it’s expected for a extreme cold rated boot but it’s really not too bad. The insoles are thick memory foam lined with red felt so you have great insulation at the bottom of the foot.

They look awesome also. They come in 3 colour options.

Is it bad when you buy shoes to match your watches Image

Got these Nike’s at the foot locker outlet last night.

I have a couple pairs of swims shoes and like them because you can wear them in the water but I haven’t yet embraced my old age and the loafer style of their lineup. These tennis sneaker ones just came out and are def more my style. Very comfy and stupid light.
