Super Thick Full Grain Leather Uppers
Kenetrek Mountain Boots have 2.0 mm thick premium full grain leather uppers utilizing a one piece vamp construction with no seams down the tongue. This increases abrasion resistance and makes the boots even more waterproof!
Lightweight Construction with the High Traction K-Talon Outsoles
It is truly amazing how incredibly light in weight these boots are! Kenetrek's exclusive outsole design with its deep relief and open tread pattern provides serious multi directional bite in snow, mud, or dry ground. Traction Teeth at the toe and heel give extra grip going up and down hills while perimeter Side Lugs provide grip when side-hilling.
I've only had the boots for three weeks so it's a little early to make final ratings but I have worn them for several days and one app. 4 mile hike. Initial impression is that they are light, well made and have great traction in various underfoot conditions including a little snow. The nly downside at this point is the toe box is slightly narrower than my toes and it pinches slightly. I fully expect this to improve as the shoes breakin.
I have been ordering one pair of boots each year and I always wear them out by the end of the year. I decided to invest a little more in quality boots and I am very happy with the quality of the kenetreck boots. The ones I ordered are uninsulated and have kept my feet warm and dry I have even used them on two hikes in snow so far. I have around 20 miles on them so far and no complaints they fit as expected and I can tell they are going to hold up.
