The PERFECT boot with ALMOST the perfect fit
I have been trying to buy a lace up, olive colored, hiking boot (and waterproof at that) for three years now, so when I saw this one from Overland, a brand that I love, I ordered it. It just got in, and, short of what appears to be a manufacturing defect in the toe box on the left boot, it's perfect. The right boot fits perfectly.) I love the styling, love the side-zip while you can still lace up the front to tighten the boot on your foot, and love, love, love the color! The problem with the left boot is that where the sole meets the side seam, there is too much of a ridge, so my big toe rubs on it. I know there would be no avoiding that, even with thicker socks. And to wear them after 10 minutes, I know that my toe would be miserable. I am having to return them. I bought them at the end of the season (my bad luck) so now they are out of stock until next fall. I'm praying that the buyers bring back this exact style in this exact colorway.
