I had a pair of these for years and years and finally wore them out. I wore them all over the Sierras in weekend and week-long trips, and on a one day trip up and down Mt. Whitney. They were always comfortable and provided plenty of ankle support, and were very lightweight.

What's a good equivalent today? I'm 55, 6'1" and 215 lbs, size 10.5 and I haven't backpacked much for a few years.

I'd really prefer to buy boots that are NOT made in China, by the way.
