Was this review helpful?

The La Sportiva Thunder III GTX is a high quality, solid hiking and backpacking boot for those looking for that style of boot. They offer more sizing choices, making it more likely that you can find the best size for your feet. It fit my low volume foot pretty well, although it was not as plush feeling as some brands when new. It feels like it would get more comfortable with break-in miles. Its a bit heavier than the competition that I considered for this type of boot, but it walks "lighter", probably due to the excellent outsole that provides some impact cushioning as well as significant support to the uppers. Those "slots" in the leather part of the lower boot contribute to a nice flex when walking, despite the stiff sole. My one complaint was that the lacing has lots of friction, making it more difficult to get the desired tension in the lower boot, although the lace locks in the last loop are quite clever. I tried different laces, but the friction was still there. In the end, I decided that this was a heavier boot than I wanted for my strictly day hiking.

I'd also recommend: Vasque, Lowa, Asolo
