Hello Hoffman’s, this is Derek. So far the Classic boots you referred me to have been awesome. Very light weight, waterproof, supportive, and great on the pole. They are also unbelievable on the ground. The boot is an all-around boot and exactly what I've been searching for the past 12 years. I'm very picky when it comes to boots and a hard critic. They even have improved my lower back and knee pain on long shifts. Thank you Hoffman Boots for continuing to improve for the hard working individuals that get little recognition. I will recommend these boots to all I know/.
