I love my boots better than any other available. I went to REI and asked to see every high end boot that they had in my size. They gave me 6 or 8 pairs. I kept going back to the same boot when I walked on their test rocks and while jumping around. You will also find one boot that just feels right so buy those. That's so much more important than style and reviews. If I had to visually pick or go off of reviews it would have been the last boot I would have picked.
