    THE GOOD
    All around durable the Perfekt is loaded with love-your-feet comforts like a foot-friendly cork insert. It also has a top quality sole and leather upper.

    THE BAD
    Not much bad except the value. If the Perfekt was $30 cheaper then the value would be excellent.

    This boot requires the avearage break-in time for a backpacking boot. The Perfekt has an extra curvy foot shape with a little extra in the width to comfortably allow thick socks.

    THE PRICE
    List price – $220.00
    Average price – $189.95

    OTHER NOTES
    This boot is very well thought out so you get what you pay for.
