Good boot, but get the Malamute
This is an excellent boot for all mountain and back country use. It is quite stiff, even when broken in, and probably shouldn't be used in the park.
The bottom line if, for the use this boot is designed for, the one step up Malamute is the better boot and worth the extra money. The Malamute has a better liner, is a little stiffer, doesn't go soft as quick, and has an excellent internal heel strap. They're a great boot, yes, but when if you're already looking to spend this much, spend the little extra on the 'mute.
My feet are low volume and slightly narrow, with skinny ankles and heels, but these boots fit well. I'd recommend buying your street shoe size in these.
