It was my first time doing such and I wanted a pair of boots that would stand up to the test. I picked up a pair of LOWAs and started breaking them in. What I quickly found out was they didn't need much time to do so!
They also held up well and I have worn them in several other trips and they have still continued to work well for me!
I also have a 2 pairs of the Renegade model that I wear for work and around the house and I love them equally as well!
