For a bunch of years now, my go to backpacking boots for moderate weather have been a pair of Solomon Quest 4D GTX.
Well, they were getting pretty worn out, and few weeks ago, they finally gave out. One of the eyelets for the laces broke off.
I wasn’t particularly upset. The boots have served me well, and I have gotten a lot of use out of them. It was time for a new pair. So, I went to the same REI store where I had gotten these boots, when the store had just opened years ago, and bought a pair of new ones. My choice?
That’s right. A new pair of Solomon Quest 4D GTX. I’ve been so happy with the boots, that it was the only type I was interested in getting. I walked in, I asked to see a pair in my size, tried them on, and bought them. I wore them on my last trip, and they are coming along fine; a worthy successor to my trusted boots.
