THE GOOD
This is a lightweight and very breathable boot because of mesh vents in the upper. The Rincon is comfortable and one of the most inexpensive hiking boots available.

THE BAD
The style is a decade old, the sole is thin in the toe box and the materials are barely average quality. Also, the Rincon is afraid of water.

THE FIT & COMFORT
Has a slightly straighter foot pattern similar to the Salomon. The sole maybe a little to thin for walking on pointy rocks and flora.

THE PRICE
List price - $70.00
Average price - $59.95

OTHER NOTES
It's old technology at a lowish price, but there are a few boots that are cheaper and better.

Available Sizes: Men's 7-17
