Did they have a notched heel and squared-off toe for use with ski bindings?

Yes they did...I'm pissed that I can't find them...Hopefully I will find them today.

Ever wear those boots? They seemed way too heavy to do any rucking in.

I used a pair of boots from North Face...they worked pretty good.

I just ordered these...http://www.bootbay.com/shop/images/merrell_50743.jpg

I broke my ankle twice and twisted it again overseas, so I went for the ankle support!

This is just a reminder, please do not advertise poodle clippers in this forum even if it's the gear forum.

Thanks.

The Chips were heavier then most boots and very stiff, but they were great in cold weather and on rocks. Kept the ankle well protected!

Thanks for the input. Like I said, I never took them out of the box. Seemed pretty heavy, and I preferred my Matterhorns (until I got issued Danners!) for the cold stuff.

What's the ankle and arch support on the Oakleys like? Are they narrow or wide?
Thanks,
