Bootmance - GARMONT Flash III GTX Hiking Boots

Postby Dex » Mon Dec 19, 2011 2:28 pm

I got GARMONT Flash III GTX Hiking Boots from EMS for $112 (free shipping and a $20 gift card).
http://www.ems.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3651168

I took them out on a 13mi hike of the Coosa trail in Ga. - These are great boots - great support all around, lite, good traction, cushioned and shaped insole, heal break.


I was looking for a replacemnt for the MERRELL Outland Mid Waterproof Hiking Boots

The sole is thin and I felt everything underfoot. It also didn't give any protection in the front from stubbing your toes.

Dex...how does the sizing run on Garmont's products in comparison to other brands? True to size? I don't think I've tried on their boots before.

And has anyone tried the TOWER GTX boot before? How does it hold up to snow climbs in the spring? How is it for kicking steps?
Warm?

True to size - I take a 10 and the fit is perfect.

I forgot to mention they provide an extra flat insole that can be used for cold weather or if you have a low volume foot.
