Why yes, these boots are made in Italy. These sharp-looking hiking boots with suede and breathable synthetic fabric uppers surprised me with their slipper-like comfort. With plenty of room for my sprawling toes, but maybe a bit too much for my narrow foot, the addition of a pair of Superfeet made for the best hiking boot fit I can recall in years. Built for easy-to-moderate terrain, the Montera Lite GTX is a lightweight and breathable boot with a snug and extremely comfortable ankle collar. The Gore-Tex liner ensures complete waterproofness. An innovative sole design makes for better shock absorption on the outward part of the heel where the foot strikes the ground and on the big toe area charged with propelling your feet forward in style and comfort. MSRP: $189.95.
