Burly Boots for Big Feet/Ankles
I wanted to love these boots since they are beautifully-made, and clearly the burliest and best-insulated NNN-BC boots out there.

Burly Boots for Big Feet/AnklesI wanted to love these boots since they are beautifully-made, and clearly the burliest and best-insulated NNN-BC boots out there. They also seem to be the best-designed "new school" version of an X-C boot: the hinged thermoplastic "exo-skeleton" drastically increases ankle support (much better than the Rossi BC-X10) without restricting fore/aft movement.
Unfortunately they are sized for big feet & ankles. The 42 I tried were the right length for my feet (so sizing down wouldn't have helped), but they felt like an EE in width/volume. Also the whole upper part of the boot was sized for someone with "cankles": the exoskeleton's velcro strap was too long to be able to be tightened around my ankle (and even if it could have been tightened the boot's material would've folded over in the process).
Also note that putting these boots on (and taking them off) involve a complicated four-step process: tighten/tie the laces, close the velcro lace holder (why this is needed I don't know), zip up the outer boot (which is strangely tight-fitting over my low-volume feet) and thread-through/tighten the exoskeleton's velcro strap. Not something you want to do out on the trail!
