    THE GOOD
    This is a lightweight and very breathable boot because of mesh vents in the upper. The Rincon is comfortable and one of the most inexpensive hiking boots available.

    THE BAD
    The style is a decade old, the sole is thin in the toe box and the materials are barely average quality. Also, the Rincon is afraid of water.

    THE FIT & COMFORT
    Has a slightly straighter foot pattern similar to the Salomon. The sole maybe a little to thin for walking on pointy rocks and flora.

    THE PRICE
    List price – $70.00
    Average price – $59.95

    OTHER NOTES
    It’s old technology at a lowish price, but there are a few boots that are cheaper and better.

    Available Sizes: Men’s 7-17
