THE GOOD
The sole on the Active Trail is grippy and knobby and it has a thick scuff guard. It's also comfy and has a thick leather upper.

THE BAD
The Active Trail doesn't breath as well as most mid tops. The insert isn't particularly exciting either.

THE FIT & COMFORT
This is a comfortable boot and requires now break-in time. The Active Trail has a standard foot shape (slight curve and medium width) the same as Merrell and Nike ACG.

THE PRICE
List price - $100.00
Average price - $89.95

OTHER NOTES
Cabela's tend to have slightly more durable materials than other brands that are similar.

Available Sizes: Men's 8-12, 13, 14
