    THE GOOD
    This boot has 8 tall inches of support, durable materials and is made with a single-piece leather upper. Also, it’s lightweight for the quality.

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

    This boot requires the avearage break-in time for a backpacking boot. The Teton II has an normal 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
