NEW - Stein PHANTOM Chainsaw Boots now released

Recommended Posts

I would like to hear more about these Boots.

 

I am looking for a pair of Boots for the winter,I like the way the Rubber extends from the Sole to the upper on these boots.Does it stay stuck to the upper for the life of the Boot?

 

It rains alot here,waterproof Boots are important.

It amazes me that there still are hooks like these half way up the boot to fly your laces through... I really can't imagine that I am the only one kicking those out of shape on the first spike job.

True.

 

Speed lacing like alot of Boots have,is a bit of a "love/hate" design.It seems to work well on some Boots,not so great on others. Tubular or circular eyes with enough length in the laces is probably a better design,as we tend to put the Boots on only once a day.

 

I think the best idea is the hooked eyelets that the North American Custom Boots have,you need special Laces however they never seem to get unhooked.

Ive been wearing these for a few months now and im really pleased with them so far. There was no breaking in period like the previous version which were considerably stiffer. Really good soles for branch walking too. If these prove to be durable aswell then i reckon Stein are onto a winner with these. I'll write a more detailed review when I get the time.

 

 

How are they holding up nearly 6 months down the line?

Sorry mike,

 

Yes they are holding up well although to be truthful I have had a really quiet summer so they certainly haven't been getting daily abuse. Still really happy with the comfort of them though, both on the ground and in the tree
