THE GOOD
All around durable the Perfekt is loaded with love-your-feet comforts like a foot-friendly cork insert. It also has a top quality sole and leather upper.

THE BAD
Not much bad except the value. If the Perfekt was $30 cheaper then the value would be excellent.

THE FIT & COMFORT
This boot requires the avearage break-in time for a backpacking boot. The Perfekt has an extra curvy foot shape with a little extra in the width to comfortably allow thick socks.

THE PRICE
List price - $220.00
Average price - $189.95

OTHER NOTES
This boot is very well thought out so you get what you pay for.

Available Sizes: Men's 7-12, 13
