    Im gonna bite the bullet and go for the Lathrop and sons this year. I have went thru two pair of Kennetreks and sent both of them back. It might just be my foot but they rubbed half dollar size blisters on my heels. Thats even after I went thru there break in regimen. But I know people that have them and love them. I struggle with boots and hope I can find some that work for me.

    hvfd,

    Do you have a narrow heel. Kenetreks have a lot of heel room, and i tsounds like you are getting some heel slip. The Lathrops might be a good option for you. I also have blister problems due to my heel shape. The best boot I have found (no blisters!) is the Kayland Vertigo High.

    I just ordered a pair of the Danner Pronghorns from Lathrop and Sons, they are running a special on them with the synergy footbeds free. Can't wait till they get here to go look for turkeys!

    Just Google them. I had to order mine online. Sometimes Sierra Trading post has them for very good prices. They fit true to size on the Euro sizes. Think of the US sizing as approximate.

    It took me some time - and returning a few pairs of boots - to find the right ones. I ended up having my best luck at REI...their knowledgeable staff was best I've experienced and their 100% guarantee makes the purchase risk free. I now avoid most "hunting boots" and go right for the backpacking boots...settled on some Asolo - 2 seasons on them and still doing well.

    Good Luck - and like most have said - boots are the one thing you want to get right - for mountain hunts, I feel they are more important than any other piece of gear.

    I also have a narrow foot and heel. I have had great luck with my UA Ridge reepers so far. I put some superfit greens in them and I only got heel blisters on the first hike. Now no problems. The boots probably wont last a life time, but they are very light weight for how beefy they are, yet the boots are still nimble enough for stalking. Also without the upper laces cinched they hike fast and light. Im pretty impressed considering that they are a disposable boot.
