    THE GOOD
    The sole on the Active Trail is grippy and knobby and it has a thick scuff guard. It’s also comfy and has a thick leather upper.

    THE BAD
    The Active Trail doesn’t breath as well as most mid tops. The insert isn’t particularly exciting either.

    THE FIT & COMFORT
    This is a comfortable boot and requires now break-in time. The Active Trail has a standard foot shape (slight curve and medium width) the same as Merrell and Nike ACG.

    THE PRICE
    List price – $100.00
    Average price – $89.95

    OTHER NOTES
    Cabela’s tend to have slightly more durable materials than other brands that are similar.

    Available Sizes: Men’s 8-12, 13, 14
