After looking for good quality hunting/hiking boots, I realized that I must be the first person in town to ask for a full leather, non-Goretex boot (salesman at REI looked at me like I had a third eye). I can't be the only one in Anchorage that sweats horribly in a lined boot! Over half that i looked at not only had a waterproof membrane, but insulated too? I tend to reserve an insulated boot for when it is below 0 degrees.
I did find a Scarpa Fuego boot with a full shank that Barneys could order, but does anyone else have thoughts on this?
