THE GOOD
The Canyon has better toe protection then most boots of this level of quality. It is well padded for its weight and moderate in styling.

THE BAD
The leather and lining materials are a notch lower compared to most backpacking boots that are similarly priced. The insert is not form fitting and the lining is only single stitched.

THE FIT & COMFORT
No break-in time required. The toe box is more roomy for feet that are slightly wider than average, and you get more arch support then Merrell or The North Face. Though it is well padded, it may need a few miles of break-in.

THE PRICE
List price - $110.00
Average price - $103.95

OTHER NOTES
The lighter color (tan) tends to be $4 more than the two dark gray styles. New model is rarely on sale.

Available Sizes: Men's 7-12, 13, 14
