Customer Review

on 28 November 2013
I did not buy this from Amazon because I was not offered shipping to Hong Kong - I bought from another company via Ebay.

The boots are in a word excellent.

Comfort - this is the forte of the boot and as soon as you wear them, you feel they are a very familiar pair. Good contact around the heel, midsole and ankle, which is assisted by the tape attached to the laces that wraps around the back of the heel. The toes are left with loads of room and there is just no rubbing at all there - brilliant. Ive worn them for about 60 miles in a short period of time so far and not one niggle. They are also very light for their size which helps massively. The boots absorb shock very well and I felt confident enough to use them to run down the mountain yesterday. this is impressive because hitting the ground to hard was the cause of a recent injury and had I felt any pain at all, I would walked.

Support - this inspires confidence with a tough and rigid midsole and a firm but not restrictive ankle cuff. this shines on uneven ground, you can just power on

Grip - this is better than most reviews say. If these are a 3 star for grip than my North Face hedgehogs woudl get zero. The Targhees are grippy in mud and wet stone but they do suffer on wet moss/lichen. On a dry day nothing will stop them but do be careful on angled rocks in the wet. I woudl give 4 out of 5.

Protection- for a light boot, they are rugged and the trademark rubber toe cap is effective for absorbign stubs. I've not used them in anythign ither than light rain and they kept very dry.

Generally, they are easy to clean with deep, wide lugs. The laces do ride up and over the tongue, but it is easy to prevent that by passing the laces through the loop on the tongue. The laces are of perfect length and are grippy, but even better the plastic lugs at the top of the lacing entrap the lace and don't let it slacken if they become unlaced.

All in all, a very good boot and i highly recommend it.
