THE GOOD
The White Ledge is one of the most inexpensive all- leather hiking boots available. It is very stylish and has metal lacing components and has very good arch support.

THE BAD
While it is a good looking boot, its good looks may keep it out of the extreme competition. Not durable enough for heavy hiking or heavy packs.

THE FIT & COMFORT
Roomy. It's listed as medium width, but it has room to spare. Your toes won't be claustrophobic, but if you have a small heel it might be a bit loose. The padding is not too bulky, but you might have some small hot spots.

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

OTHER NOTES
The tan style is a little harder to find and the brown style occasionally goes on sale for $75.

Available Sizes: Men's 8-12, 13, 14, 15
