North Ridge Tower Event 2011

The North Ridge Tower Event weighs 1704g (pair, size 11); full-grain leather upper; eVent waterproof lining; rubber rand around toe; Vibram sole unit with extremely deep lug pattern for grip and durability; good stiffness in sole unit. But upper is quite soft and unsupportive compared to sole; at this price there are some slightly better boots.

The North Ridge Tower Event is a good boot for hill and mountain walking, although at this price others have a slight edge in terms of performance.
