I know you're not supposed to base things on price, but I got a deal on a pair of Cabela's Alaskan Hunters, by Meindl - $158+tax that a buddy of mine found in the Bargain Cave at a nearby store. They don't seem to have been worn. I was planning on buying a pair of Lowa Hunter GTXs prior to a trip to the Kenai this fall for a bit of hiking, camping, and prowling for a black bear (going up to Crescent Lake), but I decided to save a couple C-notes. We'll see how that turns out. I hope alright.
Anyway, does anyone have experience with these boots? Any suggestions on the best care and feeding of these boots? I'm also debaiting whether to change the insoles?
