When you're hunting Dall Sheep in the Mackenzie Mountains of the Northwest Territories, you may be surprised with six inches of snow in August. Others may wait it out in the tent, but your Extremes give you the wherewithal to continue hunting no matter what. There's nothing tougher than high altitude sheep hunts and no boot tougher and more comfortable than these. Made in Italy. 4.2 lbs.
10" tall 2.8mm thick premium full grain leather uppers with one piece vamp construction with no seams down the tongue for abrasion resistance and waterproofness
Reinforced double and triple stitching
7mm nylon midsoles for extra support with pack loads
Boot hardware that swivels instead of breaking
Reinforced rubber sole guard for extra abrasion resistance
Windtex® waterproof breathable flexible membrane
Features 400 gram Thinsulate™ for warmth without the bulk
Lightweight K-Talon™ outsoles provide excellent traction
These are the most expensive boots I have ever bought, but worth it. I had trouble with some Danner boots this elk season, they were letting my foot move forward no matter how tight I tied them. These boots really lock your foot in place and don't allow it to move. Very comfortable
The boots are very well made and fit like quality slippers. I've treated them with a coating of Kenetrek Boot Wax as instructed and look forward to wearing them on an upcoming outing. My only disappointment was the shoe laces being two different lengths, and a lack of any paperwork or directions accompanying my boots. I called customer service to get this corrected, and one week later received laces that are more than a foot too long. I was told the only paperwork would be the shipment confirmation sent to my email. I am very pleased with Kenetrek and will heartily recommend to all. Not so impressed with Scheels.
When buying boots for high country hunting, Kenetrek is always the first name to come up. That is for a good reason, this is a great boot that provides exceptional protection and stability for rough country travel. You can not buy better.
This is my second pair. First pair is 5 years old and still wonderful, a hundred twenty dollar discount got me to buy another pair sooner than I need them. I did spend an hour or so getting the size right 5 years ago. This is the first 5 star rating I have ever posted. The boot is that good.
